Stash Project: Sweetness Quilt


Well, I've been stashing this Bliss fabric for a while {and I had a couple charm packs too!} and now the time has finally come to make a quilt out of it {read: baby girl is dues any day now!}.  So, here's my version of "Sweet Pea" by Camille Roskelley from her book Simplify {I decided to call mine "Sweetness"}.  While I had seen the pattern in the book, it was actually the mini version by Kristyne of Pretty by Hand {my mom is really the one who saw it, but when she showed me I knew I needed to make one}.

The original pattern was 42" square, but I wanted mine to be a little longer, so I added a row of squares and a ruffle.  I really can't ever seem to just follow a pattern straight through, but I love that this is a unique version!  Now I'm just anxious to see a little girl on it!

Stash Project: Sweetness Quilt

And, since I'm always forgetting to post the winners of the previous month's Stash Project, I've decided to just post it with the new project.  So, congratulations to Heather who posted about the Camera Filter Case she made for her dad!


It's actually a great idea for a handmade guy gift too!  I think my dad would like one for his SD cards, and my husband would like a similar one for his hard drive.

If you've made something out of your stash and would like to share it, we'd love to see.  If you link up your project you'll have a chance to win a little {personalized} mug rug and some other goodies.  When linking up, please make sure to follow our few simple rules, and visit some of the other great stash projects too! The giveaway will close when the linky closes, on November 31.

  15. I like this design a lot, and think I'll be making it in the future. Thanks for sharing your beautiful creation!

    A suggestion for your Stash Project v. 2012: let those of us who don't have blogs participate! I followed the link to see what to do, since I recently finished a crib quilt that I was going to enter, and found I couldn't.

  16. Jennie, is it okay to link up more than one project? I have already linked one, but have another that I'd love to share!

    Hope you're doing well.
