[chirp chirp] It’s been quiet around here.

I apologize for the silence around here lately. Life has been hectic, I started working for another Etsy shop, and my kids started in school. It’s been a mad house.

This weekend, I finally finished up my late birthday gifts and my late do.Good stitches quilt from JULY. It’s a little sad how late I am, but I’m glad it’s done! I had selected the color scheme based on the backing fabric, and then ordered and mailed out fabrics to all of the members of my circle. They got to work on the blocks, called Trellis Crossroads from the book Modern Bee. It’s a simple enough design, but the pattern isn’t super accurate, and as a result, we all had issues getting our blocks to line up correctly. In the end, it worked out fine and while it changed my plans for free motion quilting, it turned out well enough.

I used a variety of different fabrics for this quilt, and still asked the members to contribute some of their own scraps from their stash. Me providing some of the fabrics needed helped to create a cohesive and coordinating appearance to the quilt. I wanted everyone’s little stash bits so that each block represented who created it. It was fun to see what came in!

    That’s beautiful! And don’t feel bad about the lateness – I haven’t even pieced the top from July, or quilted the one from before that….. I’m very, very behind right now. 🙂
