Quilty stitches

Quilty Stitches Block 6

Pinwheel Sampler

So many fun things going on over here these days!  I got my pinwheel sampler back from Abby last week & I am really looking forward to getting the binding on this one.  It has been an unfinished project for so long!  I’ll be sure to share more photos of the finished quilt when I get that binding on. =)

Friendship Star Block

Many of you are anxiously awaiting Block #6 of the Quilty Stitches Sampler.  And here it is. =)  It’s my version of a Friendship Star Block–based off the pillow that I made for Sew Mama Sew.  I make scads of pillows and this is one of my favorites.  I’m so tempted to make a quilt version.

For the Cross Stitch pattern I used the following colors:

DMC 744 (yellow)

Sullivan’s 45313 (Aqua)

Sullivan’s 45169 (Orange)

Sullivan’s 45121 (Grey)

Sullivan’s 45105 (Green)

Sullivan’s 45338 (Pink)

DMC White

I’ve received a number of questions as to whether I am filling in all of the blank spaces or leaving it empty.  I am filling in all of the blank spaces with white DMC–it’s hard to tell that in the photos.  So, both the sashing and any background fill are white stitches in my sampler.

I have really been enjoying seeing all of the Quilty Stitches blocks showing up over on flickr and instagram!  Here are a couple flickr pics that caught my eye:

Happy Stitching!

  • C’est très beau bonne journée Marie-Claire

  • Beautiful!!!!!

  • Another winner! Thanks so much. So far I’ve managed one block. Does printing them off count?

  • That second one is mine. 🙂 Thanks so much this, I’m really having fun with it. I haven’t posted a pic of my barn block yet because I felt rather silly, literally on the last stitch I looked over at the pattern and realized I’d made my postage stamp block wrong. I made it much harder than it had to be! Oh well, off to pick out colors for this one.

  • I’ve let myself get behind, I need to catch up! I really, really love this block!

  • I finally started block one last night! I realized how much I enjoy doing hand stitched projects once in awhile. Can’t wait til I get to stitch this block.

  • A little late I’ve decided to start this little baby up! I’ve got some catching up to do!!! But I’m so excited!

  • Oh I’m so excited I can hardly stand myself! You picked my picture (3) as one that caught your eye….. SO EXCITING!! Now to do my barn and this block to get caught up!!
