do. good stitches banner quilt

Way back in August, I was tasked with deciding on what quilt my circle of do. Good Stitches (the Wish Circle) would make. I eventually settled on making a variation of this quilt, by Ellen Luckett Baker. I asked my circle members to make the banner blocks in primary colors: red, blue and yellow. You can see the two blue blocks that I made here.

After receiving all of the blocks from my circle...

do. Good Stitches: December Quilt Block

For the month of December, Alyssa asked our circle in do. Good Stitches to create a block featuring a combination of pink prints and solids, using this tutorialby Faith at Fresh Lemons. This was my first time doing traditional paper piecing, and while I had to rip out a few (teeny, tiny!) seams, I loved the process and its accuracy, and am inspired to try out more paper-pieced blocks.

do. Good Stitches: November Blocks

Here are the blocks I made for Erica, November's quilter in our circle of do. Good Stitches. Erica requested blocks made in boy-friendly colors, using this tutorial. I had fun pulling a bunch of fabrics from my stash for these, including some shirting and a vintage print. I can't wait to see the finished quilt!

do. Good Stitches swap + a cross-stitch heart quilt

After sending off my set of coasters to my swap partner Erica, I received the most amazing gift from my swap partner Alyssa, who blogs over at Pile O' Fabric. Using fabrics from some of my favorite designers, Leah Duncan and Lotta Jansdotter, Alyssa created a wall quilt featuring a cross-stitch heart, based on the original Salty Oat logo.

Isn't it amazing!? She hand-quilted the entire thing and then hand-stitched the Salty Oat logo in the bottom right corner of the quilt.

Also in the package were two wide-mouth zipper pouches (made from Anna's tutorial, which I've been meaning to try out myself) featuring more of Leah's fabric and linen. They arrived just in time for my trip to Houston and were perfect for holding travel essentials and Quilt Market goodies.

Alyssa put together a great tutorial for the cross-stitch quilt block, if you're interested in making your own.

Thank you, Alyssa!
