Come What May

May is my month for the Stash Bee.  I am calling my quilt “Come What May” for that reason and because it is kind of an “improv” type of quilt, I am just sewing together the blocks willy-nilly as they come in the mail and will see how it turns out.


Here’s what it looks like so far.  I’ve received blocks from Tanya, Miki, and Jenelle.

I also finished up my Aneela Hoey quilt.  The binding/borders are a little wavy, but it’s in the dryer right now and I’m hoping to get some better (less wavy) photos of it tomorrow.


I really like this pattern.  It’s by Sew Bittersweet Designs and uses 2.5” squares, so it would be a perfect scrap-buster.  I am so into scrap quilts right now, how about you?  I’ve spent every spare dime I have buying scrap packs on Etsy the past few weeks.  It was a great way to get some designer fabric I’ve never seen in real life.


I stippled all over this quilt with gray thread from Connecting Threads.  The back is Kona Ash, the borders are Alexander Henry Heath in a dark pink, and the binding is gray with white polka dots. 


If you look close, the fabric isn’t white, it’s the pale pink square dots from Sherbet Pips.

Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Now why didn't I think of that? I will have to keep that in mind the next time the fabric shopping bug bites :)
    Your quilts are beautiful! Love the first three blocks for "come what May"

  3. The Aneela Hoey quilt is lovely, who of your girls will get it? I have never heard about the possibility of buying scrap bags before- what a clever idea if you want to make a scrap quilt! I´ve been into cross-quilts lately. After my interlocking crosses I almost finished another quilttop with greek crosses for a cousin´s wedding. Because these crosses use a lot of 2.5inch strips they are a great way to use up scraps from jelly rolls.

  4. Oh my gosh!!! Your quilt turned out so beautifully!
