Circle 7 Bee :: Dana’s Quilt

As I’m finishing the  last quilt for this bee, I realized I haven’t shared my work on Dana‘s quilt!

Dana was one of the first of us to post her starter block and I was really excited about her inspiration.

Her family went on a road trip over last summer and her quilt block (a tent) was inspired by their trip.

By the time the quilt arrived to me it was BRILLIANT!   Each person added something really special.

I was inspired from the beginning by this post and I wanted to paper piece Yellowstone or Bust into the quilt somehow.

I have had the pleasure of meeting her family and they are seriously the best kind of people.   Warm, funny, caring, gracious, kind, on and on and on.

Love ya Dana, I truly savored the stitches put into this quilt for your family!

I added in the words across the bottom, the road sign with the miles they traveled, the camper and the yellow patchwork underneath.

Patterns Used:


Elizabeth @ hobbylobbyist - I love this– I want to make one for 2014.

Katy - I do love these round robin quilts, you never know what fabulousness you’ll get back!

Kit Little - Love this quilt!! This has inspired me – our family to a trip to the UK last year and I think a quilt would be a great way to remember it! Now, just to find the time :)

Flying Blind - Too awesome!

Kim - This is such an awesome quilt! What a great way to always remember a special trip!

Pam Schoessow - This quilt is very striking! I love the colors too. I showed it to my husband, the camper, and he thought it was way cool too. Thanks for sharing this.

Hannah - I LOVE this quilt!!! What a great idea! I love crafts that tell a story or have personal meaning!

I am new to quilting and am striving to learn more and more each day. I found your blog through the Atlanta Modern Quilters Guild site. I couldn’t tell how active they were… is it just monthly? And can you give me more information about how you enjoy it? There’s not much of a sewing community where I am at, and we have lost a lot of the local fabric stores in the past couple years. I am interested in joining the AMQG but since it is a little bit of a drive for me, I want to hear a “real life” review before making a big day of it, if that makes sense.

Thank you for any feedback you can give!

Snow Star :: Aurifil Mini Quilt Challenge


I’m excited to have a finish to share today!

Every month Sew Mama Sew sends out a call for contributors through their newsletter.   For the month of December it was a challenge to use  Camille Roskelley’s aurifil thread pack to make a mini quilt.

These beauties arrived and my only requirement was to use at least 2-3 spools in my design.

Christmas is my favorite time of year so that was my focus for  thread colors.    As for design, I’ve been working on a new quilt pattern called Snow Star and this seemed like the perfect way to make a small sample.   win, win!

This was my first time using contrasting thread for the quilting and it was a fun change from white.    I was surprised at how much I liked the end result!

The Snow Star pattern will be available in January and includes several finished sizes.

Thank you SMS and Aurifil for the challenge!

xo, Lindsey

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!
