Plus Banner Quilt

Finished Flimsies

Quilts, Stash Bee

I have had several groupings of quilt blocks waiting patiently to turn into quilts since early this year, and I finally carved out a morning to get the blocks pieced together into quilts. I am actually at a point where I will have a lot of finished flimsies, and I expect that September will be a full (and fun!) month of quilting and finishes. Yay!

First up for piecing were my Plus Banner Quilt Blocks, which I requested and received from Hive 9 in the Stash Bee back in January. The top finishes at 56 1/2-inches square, and I have one block left over that I’ll piece into the backing.

I am totally crushing on the corners where 4 blocks come together. 🙂

I know the color palette was not the most popular, but I am really pleased with how the quilt came together and I am excited to finish and donate it to Project Linus. The quilt top measure 48 1/2-inches wide by 60 1/2-inches long.

I am very thankful I had a free morning to dedicate to sewing these together; it feels good to have them ready to quilt!


I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
