I had gotten a box of community quilts goodies when Kramer was sick and now am finally getting to post about them.
These goodies were sent from LaNan. She is from Iowa and recently hit up a going out of business sale at a quilt shop. The owner had passes away and family wanted things gone. Aw. That would be so hard for a family to deal with. On the flip side, it was great for customers. They got great deals….
There are yards and yards on these three different fabrics. They are wonderful colors and will match MANY quilts. The one to the far left has a Civil War feel to it and would work on many of those style of quilts. The kiddies in the middle are fun. I wouldn’t be surprised if there are 10 yards or more on each of these pieces!
The shop was also selling out all of the display quilts. To get an idea on how cheap things were, this was $10!??
LaNan is also a quilter and sent a few tops she had made along….I love this one….
Next is a scrap buster done in Jelly Roll Race style.
The last is a colorful one with binding included. It’s totally not necessary but it’s super when binding is included. So often I have had trouble finding a good color from my own stash that matches the donated quilts….and I’m sure you can imagine the “rabbit hole” that takes me down to find the right fabric. Next thing I know I have a whole bunch of fabrics all over the floor and I’m planning a new quilts when all I needed was binding!! (Be honest..I’m sure you’ve done it too!)
Then goodies for the grandchildren….LaNan loves her embroidery machine and is obviously VERY good at it. The one with the peach is for Georgia and the frog is for Gannon. I love them BOTH. The moms did too!!
Because I’ve not even been in the sewing room, I decided to send the quilt tops and backing on to Ronda. I’m sure she will get to them MUCH quicker than I will. I’m hoping once winter rolls around I’ll have fewer outdoor projects and will have settled into widowhood a little more. Maybe then I can get back to some charity quilting of my own.
Thanks so much LaNan. You generosity is so appreciated!!
