do. Good Stitches banner quilt


Way back in August, I was tasked with deciding on what quilt my circle of do. Good Stitches (the Wish Circle) would make. I eventually settled on making a variation of this quilt, by Ellen Luckett Baker. I asked my circle members to make the banner blocks in primary colors: red, blue and yellow. You can see the two blue blocks that I made here.


After receiving all of the blocks from my circle members, I pieced the top together, adding white sashing between each block. I kept the quilting simple, outlining each banner.


For the backing, I pieced together larger pieces from my stash that fit within the color scheme, including some Lizzy House and Heather Ross prints. I also added in an extra banner block.


I bound the quilt in blue and yellow scraps and added a do. Good Stitches label to the back.


I'll be donating this quilt to the Raleigh chapter of Project Linus this week, the charity that our circle supports. Hopefully the quilt will brighten the day of a child who needs it!
