Stash Bee Quilt

My second Stash Bee quilt is finally finished!!
The first one made with Stash Bee Blocks was sent to Moore Oklahoma but I think I'm going to keep this one!! I love it!! I love the bright colors and its scrappy-ness.

Thanks to all the stash bee gals for sending me some great blocks! If you don't see your block in this quilt check the one that was sent to Oklahoma.

Thank you all for making blocks!!

Blocks made by myself and the gals of Stash Bee
Batting: Quilters dream batting Select loft 100% cotton. 
Quilted by: Kelsey Schilling 
Backing: Green Jacks from the Comma line my Zen Chic




My husband has been asking for a quilt for some time now. Every time I have one completed I end up selling it or giving it away so, with my sister reminding me almost daily, I finally finished a quilt just for him!! 

He is a big OSU fan so I decided to go with a quilt that, to me, looks like the block O.  I went with flannel but I'm hoping it won't be too hot for him.

I have made quilts with flannel backing before but never a quilt that was all flannel. I have to say my machine bogged down quite a bit on the binding and the quilt was pretty heavy to handle while quilting. Although The binding was a bear I like the way it turned out.

I also found that I'm not good with plaid... I tried several times to match it up and as you can see in this pic I didn't quite get it to match.

Quilt measures 58 by 74 inches.
A variety of flannels were used and Quilters Dream Batting was used as always. Aurifil 50wt thread was used for piecing as well as quilting. I chose to stitch in the ditch for this quilt. I also echoed some of the red plaid. This quilt is based on the pattern The Couch Quilt by Country Threads... I just modified it a bit.


A Flurry Finish

I recently finished my Flurry quilt. I just love it!! The fabric is Flurry by Kate Spain for Moda. I used a disappearing nine patch pattern and it came together quickly but I just now got around to finishing it! (I completed the top a year or more ago)

 The back is a little hard to see in this pic but the fabric is tossed with Christmas trees, mittens, holly, candy and stars. It's so cute!

If I remember correctly I used five charm packs for this quilt. Its a super easy pattern :)

Thanks for stopping in!! 



Christmas Finishes

 Thanks to Kelsey over at Kelsey Sews I was able to have these two quilts finished in time for Christmas gifts. I was wondering how on earth I was going to get everything done that I needed so I contacted her and she got them quilted super quick! Thanks Kelsey!

So up first is the music quilt. I chose these fabrics when my nephews major was something with music. Three degree changes later I decided hes getting the music quilt regardless of his degree.

Next up is the Superman quilt for my other nephew. For him I chose superman because when his was little he would walk around in a suit and only answer to Clark Kent. When the time was right he would go to his bathroom and change from the suit to his superman outfit and cape all while humming the theme song!

              I'm so glad I was able to get these completed before Christmas!

Pattern is In a Flash by Never Not Quilting

Humility Circle of Do Good Stitches

Recently I sadly left my circle of Do Good Stitches to start another circle called Humility. Our quilts will be going to the residents of the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. A friend actually got me involved in this worthwhile cause. For those of you who are unaware the Pine Ridge Reservations houses approximately 18,000 Native Americans. The reservation is stricken with alcoholism and poverty. The unemployment rate on the reservation is 80 percent. One in every four children on the reservation will be born with fetal alcohol syndrome. Many of the homes are nothing more than shacks with no heat or electric. Some may ask why these people would not leave the reservation but we all know how difficult it is to break free from generations of this type of behavior.
I chose the name Humility because I was told in Native American culture to give a blanket shows Humility. Our quilts will go to those in need in all stages of life but the social worker who delivers these is aware that our focus is more toward the children and teens. 
Anyhoo, there are ten of us making two blocks each month and you can see our progress in our  Flickr Group. 
Here are my November and December Blocks... 

If you ever get a hankering to make a quilt for charity I would be glad to send it out to the reservation for you! Just let me know!
Thanks for stopping in!
