I got a box of quilt tops in the mail from Debbie in NY. She wrote that she just knows she has more tops than will even find time to quilt so she thought to pass them on to our charity quilting program.
They are all beautiful and I was thrilled to get them. Happily I have a new person from Texas that offered to take on the some of the quilts. Her name is Jane. I think it’s fun that these quilts came from NY, stopped off in Iowa and and traveling to Texas. What an amazing group of people we have!!
Anyway, I thought I’d show you Debbie’s tops.
I love the pattern for this one. So cute. I love the color choices.
Rosie was hanging around when I was photographing the quilts. I decided to give her a little modeling practice. She’s doing pretty good.
This next one I think is a Hobo quilt. I’m not sure where the pattern came from. I know
I’m guessing the pattern came from this book. Find it HERE on Amazon.
I know for awhile making hobo quilts was very popular.
Rosie decided to make an appearance for this one…She’s really getting good at her sitting skills.
Here is the quilt out big. This wide border really looks nice when the same fabric is used on the inside. What a nice looking quilt but not too intense being only 8 blocks are needed.
This yellow is so pretty in person. I made a quilt for my sister in law with this fabric.
These last three I pulled out are more on the patriotic side. I am in contact with my friend Doreen who does Quilts of Valor for our area. She is snapping these up and finishing them for her group. It’s alway easy for me to find homes for any patriotic colored quilts. Feel free to send any my way.
Isn’t this stunning? I love it!! It’s all things I love though. Stars, Flying Geese…yep. I love it.
The other two were nice too.
Aren’t they perfect for Quilts of Valor? I don’t know the size requirements but Doreen assured me that they can make these work. A blue border might get added to the last one.
I’m so thrilled when quilt tops get into hands of people who will complete them and send them out in the world to comfort others. I think it’s wonderful!!
Thanks to all of you who are a part of making community quilts happen here. It truly warms my heart.
