Fire Pit Quilt {Stash Statement Blog Hop}

I am so excited to share the quilt that I made as part of the blog hop to celebrate Kelly's book, Stash Statement!

If you are like me and have a lot of scraps in a lot of sizes, this is a fun book to help make something beautiful from the scraps that sometimes tend to linger in our boxes, bins, and baskets!

While a lot of the quilts in this book caught my eye, the quilt that I made from the book is called Fire Pit! Here's Kelly's original quilt:

She used warm colors and cool colors with white and grey solids to create a fun geometric quilt. I immediately knew that I wanted to use this pattern to make a scrappy Christmas-y quilt.

The problem with Christmas scraps (at least, for me!) is that I tend to skip over them when I am working on non-Christmas scrap quilts and over the years, I've collected quite a few Christmas scraps and this was the perfect way to use them! I'm not the most proficient improviser so I found it less daunting to work from a single color rather than multiple colors for my pieced units.



I made my quilt slightly smaller than Kelly's original version. I also used a white background, but I used brown jelly roll strips from my scraps instead of the grey fabric in the original. Doesn't that make it look like a mod forest?


For the quilting, I used white thread and quilted large swirls. I even fancy-matched the pattern on the backing so that it is nearly invisible!


My quilt ended up 48" square and is going to be perfect for some snuggling by the Christmas tree!


I just loved being able to sprinkle in the Christmas fabrics into this quilt.


I used the backing cut on the bias for the binding. It used slightly more fabric, but I think the effect is delightful.



I hope that this version is inspiring to you! I really enjoyed making it and I'm looking forward to making some of the other quilts in Kelly's book!

  62. A few different leaders I’ve worked with have expressed their concern about becoming “irrelevant,” either as an individual or as part of a larger organization. It used to be that senior leaders would start to feel this way after ten or so years of building a successful career, but that’s not always the case anymore. With technology progressing faster than ever and a heightened need for rapid change, it’s easy to feel like you’re not where you need to be, regardless of age. Most leaders focus on what they’re missing, a management technique or tech trend to be mastered, or something totally beyond their control. They see a hot spot of up-and-coming contenders for the next big thing in the industry and throw up their hands because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time.
