I’ve been a bit slow in getting these quilts photographed and in the mail. I hope to get them all to UPS early next week but here are the quilts that will be going to new homes. I wish each and every person who donated could have received a quilt! You were all so generous and I’m still smiling at the huge response.
Except for Pinwheel Garden, all of these quilts are the actual quilts from my books or from recent magazines.
The first quilt is Pinwheel Garden from Nine Patch Extravaganza. This quilt was not actually in the book as Vicky made one just like it to test the pattern and her quilt was the one used for the book.
Quilt #2 is Shadow Stars and is in Weekend Quilts. I really love this quilt!
Quilt #3 is Winter Break from Weekend Quilts.
Quilt #4 is Old Country Stars from Nine Patch Extravaganza.
Quilt #5 is Paint Chips and is in the current issue of America Quilts for the Home.
Quilt #6 is Mary’s Lucky Stars from Nine Patch Extravaganza.
Quilt #7 is Cotton Candy Stars from Weekend Quilts.
Quilt #8 is Bloom Where You’re Planted from the Weekend Quilts book. I made this same quilt and gave it to the people we bought our current house from. The lady was not happy about moving . . little did I know that just 4-1/2 years later, I would be in the same boat! I named the quilt Bloom Where You’re Planted and sent it to them and then made the quilt shown below to include in the book.
Quilt #9 is Puppet on a String and it’s in the Nine Patch Extravaganza book.
Quilt #10 is Keep in Touch and it’s also in Nine Patch Extravaganza.
Quilt #11 is Framed Stars and is included the Oh, My Stars II published by Kansas City Star. The first 1o quilts had been pulled and photographed and I had this one out but it’s a bit smaller than the others and I kept debating about whether to find a larger quilt or use this one. It’s so bright and pretty . . I love the border! One of the ladies who won a quilt wrote me and told me that she had already decided that if she won, she would donate her quilt to a 12 year old girl who’s going through a rough time. Right then, I knew for a fact that this quilt was the perfect quilt to send to her.
Again, I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who donated to the Red Cross for Joplin!
