Blogger's Quilt Festival: Make It Do Quilt

I know, I just showed you this quilt last week. But I thought an entry into the Blogger's Quilt Festival deserved it's own post. If you want to enter the giveaways associated with the pattern launch - hurry over - they end next week!

This is my Make It Do quilt. It combines 3 of my favorite classic quilt blocks: the churn dash block, the economy block, and the shoofly block. Because I can't choose just one!

I have a big long convoluted story associated with this quilt, it's name, and the fabric I chose. But you're here for the pictures. Long story short? Make it do with the best you've got. Don't wait around for some perfect moment to arrive before you take a chance. You might only catch a small wave, and you might end up having the ride of your life. But don't wait. Just jump in!

This was my first time with variegated thread. See? Jump in!

I'm entering this one in the Original Design category. Go visit the festival, and nominate your favorites! I've got plans this next week to check them all out.

I've got two quilts in the festival this year. Check out my Sew Cherry Grannies at this post. And thanks for visiting.

Don't forget to check out the giveaway!


  1. This is really beautiful - love the cool colour combo you have used for these clever blocks!

  2. I like the colours in this one. Great design you came up with yourself, you clever cookie!
