Circle 7 Bee :: Susannah Kate’s Quilt

September was my chance to work on the quilt for Susannah Kate.



SK chose beautiful colors for her quilt.   Ice Blue, Coral, Mustardy yellow, grays and low volume prints.

I really enjoyed the laid back approach to this quilt.   I just measured and pieced without thinking.  Pure joy!

Since I’m the 4th out of 7 people to work on the quilt, I felt like I needed to help increase the size a little bit.

I added a top and side strip by randomly piecing strips together.



I had a serendipitous moment when I spotted this circle 7 in some fabric I’d pulled from my stash.



Dana’s quilt has arrived and is up on my wall.   I have some words to piece for this one.   Can’t wait to share!



Jennifer @ Ellison Lane - Your part looks fabulous- super cute with the Circle 7 in there. And I so wanted to snag those eyeglasses for myself. I had a hard time putting those back in the bag! I MUST order some for me.
Wonderful work my friend!

Valerie - The circle 7!!! That is awesome! We should totally have tried to put that in all our quilts :). This just arrived on my doorstep today-loving her quilt.

ayumills - The colors of this quilt is so nice! I love what you added! Those glasses!!

Flying Blind - Beautiful colours; it will be stunning x

Cindy - What a pretty and unique quilt! Love the colors and the low volume fabrics make it look so cozy. :) Cindy

Courtney - Wow, it is coming along so well! I love that circle 7 bit! Perfect touch!

Katy - Oooh, loving that colour combo, and the circle 7 was inspired!

Laura - I love that paper pieced block in the bottom right!

Susannah Kate - Oh My Glob!!! I’m just loving everything I see! The circle 7 is an AMAZING little detail and those butterflies are one of my favorite all time fabrics! Thanks Lindsey :) SK

Julie - Loving the colors in this quilt! Cool and Calm with a splashes of Vibrant Mustard! Brilliant!
