do.Good.Stitches Finished Quilt - Low Volume Strip Quilt

I've been a part of the Trust Circle of do.Good.Stitches, a charitable quilting bee, for some time now and in September of last year, I was charged with gathering blocks and putting together a quilt on behalf of our group. 

While I realize it is March 2nd, nearly 5 months after I received the blocks...the quilt is done and awfully pretty, wouldn't you agree?




Inspired by this quilt by Lulu Bloom, which I adore for it's simplicity, I asked my fellow bee members to create one rectangular block measuring 12" x 24" long.  The blocks were to be made using strips of low-volume fabrics, prints or solids.     



I chose to use Crafty Chloe "Pin People" print by Heather Ross for the backing; which compliments the soft overall feel of the quilt.

This quilt measures approx. 48" x 60" and is quilted in a meandering stipple formation.  After taking a swim in the washing machine and a tumble in the dryer...it will be donated to a local charitable organization, where I hope it will make someone smile.

Thanks Trust Circle for your help, I couldn't have done this without you.


Happy Sunday!!

  1. It looks great, Kristy. The backing is perfect, and I love the sneaky splash of red on the front.

  3. Very pretty, it's amazing how so many different people can create independently and then come together cohesively. The lone pop of red looks perfect and I love the HR on the back.
