Community Quilts: The Ronda and Friends Edition

Ronda has been busy…she sent along more pictures of charity quilts to share.

If you’re new to the blog you might not know that I am very into charity quilting for others.  I used to do a lot myself but now it’s come that I don’t do a lot of the actual sewing…I do more of the coordinating.  People often send me tops that they no longer love or don’t want to afford to machine quilt.  I find a charity quilting group that will finish them and donate them on to charities in their area.  Then they send pictures of the finished quilts and I feature them here on the blog.  It’s a wonderful process.  It gets items into the hands of people who have the time, or find the time to good works through their quilting hobby.  If you’re looking for places you can donate to you can find some HERE.  If you have questions, you can ask them to me in the comment section or to my email, rogjok@iowatelecom.net

Now onto Ronda’s finishes:

I have a couple more quilts to share with you.   The first one was a top sent to me from Diane O. in Michigan.”
She also sent the pieced backing“.
I love the colors she chose for this.  It has a masculine look to it and has been donated to the Fathers with Children Shelter.  It finished at 67 X 76, which is a good size to cover the cots that they sleep on.”

The second top was one that you passed on to me from Barbara in New Mexico“….It looks like she used a jelly roll or possibly just cut the strips from her own fabric.”


The backing also came from you, Jo, and was a good match for this pastel top.” (I did forward the backing to you but it came from a blog reader.)

The teal binding was left over from another backing on a different quilt.  This quilt finished up at 42 X 72 and was donated to Opportunities Unlimited, which is a residence for those who have had a severe brain injury.”

Thanks so much for the wonderful eye candy Ronda and friends.  It is wonderful to see all the good that will come to the people who receive these wonderful quilts.

    These are really pretty quilts. I love this whole thing – the donations of fabric/quilt tops/quilting, the coordination of it all, and the causes that they go to. What a great thing that you all take part in.
