"Stacks" quilt!

I have my first finish for 2017....

This quilt was previously known as 

"Boxes of Cotton and Steel"

 but I wanted something simpler.

I chose some straight line quilt in just one 


I am always frightened that once I head the other 


I will mess it all up!

The backing was an Ikea find on sale....

and one of my labels has been attached,

to make it totally finished.

The quilt is roughly 48" square, 

and looking for a new home.

Happy sewing!



  1. Fabulous quilt, so great to have a finish this early, I'm the same as you I do the straight line quilt one way, a line down the middle, repeat ad nauseum, quite meditative. Fill in more lines if necessary.

  2. It's looks fab! A great finish to start the new year xx

  3. It looks wonderful - a really fun finish!

  4. This is so fun, Susan! Question about your label (because I love it): What pen do you use? I don't make many labels, but when I do I use a stabilizer and then a Sharpie fine point. But yours looks nicer. :) I'd love any tips...

  5. That's a nice start for the new year.

  6. Looking good! I think any time we can get our quilts out of the box and get them finished is a good day. Glad this has made it to that stage. And the quilting looks great.
    PS: The dream-catcher (at the top of your page) is turning out so well, and I feel lucky that I was able to see a sneak peek of the quilting! It will really add to your top.

  7. Lucky you to have a quilt finish already. The quilt turned out lovely and I hope you have a chance to enjoy it before it goes to a new home. As for me, I'm working on five different projects right now and hopefully will have the shower favors done soon so I can focus on finishing something. Thanks for the inspiration.

  8. Such a bright and fun quilt! I love the Cotton and Steel fabrics and have just started a quilt using the prints from my stash of "August".

  9. Wow. A completely gorgeous finish and a wonderful way to kick off a new year! No wonder I can't help but want all the Cotton + Steel fabrics with quilts like this to inspire. ;o)

  10. It's wonderful Susan - so gorgeous fabrics.

  11. Just lover-ly, Susan. Your quilting looks really nice with it. Seems like a nice lap-sized covering, perhaps for someone who needs some love?

  12. This is such a simple design but for these fabrics it is so effective. And so of course the straight line quilting works really well. This is a great first finish for the year.

  13. It's a beautiful finish and a perfect size for a baby quilt. Save it for when you need a gift.

  14. Beautiful. Perfect name too. I agree . . . save it for a gift.
