Katie's Quilt

It was my turn to orchestrate the quilt for December for my do. Good Stitches Haven group.  I decided to try to make the block as quick and easy as possible for my ladies since December is a very hectic and sometimes stressful month for the holidays.  So my instructions were to just sew strips of fabric together into a 12.5 inch block.  My only rule was to keep the blocks either warm or cool colors.  They could make 2 warm, 2 cool, or one of each.  So far I only have about half the blocks from everyone.  But I am looking forward to playing around with them and figuring out what the heck I'm going to do with them all!

 Here's a quilt my sister made.  

I went a little fancy on the borders.  Fancy for me anyways.  The pieced blocks were perfect for design spacing.

 In the center I did an all-over feathered paisley design.  

But my favorite part is the back.  I used a sage green thread on both the top and bottom so it really shows up on the cream colored solid back.

Oh, that Katie! How does she get so much done?? Very pretty - I like to look at the fabrics to see which ones were gleaned from my scrap basket!!!!

This is going to be a wedding gift for our friends. They were married in October - hopefully I'll have it bound by Valentine's Day.
