More Donation Quilts

Before I show the latest group of donation quilts, I want to say how happy I am that my long-time blogging friend Melanie has started posting again.  She’s an expert in medallion quilts and does beautiful work, so you may want to check her out here.

These quilts are going to Ronald McDonald House, so here’s a last look at them before they go.  

improvisationally pieced quilt

“In Fairyland”, original design, 2013.  53″ x 67″.  I like it, but it’s never been used, so off it goes.


Serendipity I”, 2020, 51″ x 61″. Pattern is from Love Jelly Roll Quilts.


Black and floral quilt

Unnamed, 55″ x 69″, 2011.  Made to use some of my huge stash of florals, but never used.

Kaffe Leftovers, 48″ x 60″, 2020.

I designed “Spring Sun” using piecing papers from a Judy Niemeyer pattern, 2012-2014.   It was juried into an AQS show but has never been used, so it’s time to donate it.

“Elizabeth’s Village”, 40″ x 40″.  Center design is by my friend Elizabeth and pattern is available in her Payhip store. I added borders so it would finish crib size, 2020.

“Baby Stars”, 45″ x 45″, 2019.  Pattern is “Lucky Stars” by Atkinson Designs.

Star Swap Quilt, original design, 2019. 40″ x 40″.

I hope the families at Ronald McDonald House get enjoyment and comfort from these quilts.  They were just stored in a closet here, so they need to be used.

  1. I suspect your quilts will be the bright spot in some folks’ stays at the Ronald McDonald House! They are beautiful gifts!

  2. Oh my gosh those are all beautiful. The Spring Sun is outstanding. What a generous gift to the Ronald McDonald House. I have to agree that quilts are meant to be USED, not left on a shelf. I am certain they will be used and loved.

  3. Wow. I’m thoroughly impressed with the variety of quilt styles you’ve made! It’s apparent you enjoy trying various arrangements and techniques (including making Elizabeth’s Village – she’s a friend of mine too!), and it’s marvelous that you’re generously donating them. Ronald McDonald’s House is a worthy organization, and I hope they receive these with many thanks of grateful appreciation. I am not as generous about giving quilts away, as you are. Most often these days, my quilts are large, and have a huge time investment, especially in the quilting. So I tend to be more judicious about who receives them. So, I guess I’m saying you make me feel guilty! But I’m very grateful for people like you. Bless you!

  4. You certainly ‘listen’ to your quilts…each of these told you it was time to get off the shelf and onto people’s laps!!!!! Just a fine example of your generosity in action, Zippy.
    I remember that last quilt and that I liked it, too!
