Harmony. do. good. stitches. August Quilt

For August I wanted to put together a quilt made from simple blocks so that the ladies in my bee could have a break with the summer ending, everyone going back to school, etc. I have always had a special place in my heart for churn dash blocks. They are probably my favorite classic traditional block. I had seen a couple of wonky churn dash blocks and decided that it would be really cute to have an entire quilt of those so that's what I did. :)

Here is the top pieced together. Unfortunately it is missing two blocks, but I didn't find those until I had finished the entire quilt, somehow they got stuck underneath another set of blocks and left out. :(

I decided to bind this bright quilt in a black and white polka dot. I love the contrast it has! Have I mentioned that I LOVE doing binding by hand? I would NEVER machine bind a quilt, that's the best part!!

Here's another look at the binding.

And finally a finished quilt. I need to take this one outside and take a better picture of it, but it's so cold.. One day.

  1. This turned out so great! I love how you quilted it! I want to try that someday - it looks easier than a bunch of tiny pebbles. :) It looks like bubbles to me.
    I just got accepted into a new do.Good Stitches circle. I'm so excited! When you requested these blocks, did you request that everyone use a certain type of white fabric, or did you just let everyone use whatever they had? Your blocks all look really good together.
