A Little Porch Time Anyone??

I love everything about this book! The quilts, the projects and the title! It's been in my collection now for almost a year. That makes me sad because I want to do it so bad. I had an idea....

Does anybody else have this book and maybe want to work together on it? I can divide it up and we can do a section a month? Sort of like a Block of the Month? I just figure the accountability will keep me on task. And I plan on making a little porch time this spring and summer and I can't think of a better quilt to work on.
Here's a photo of the quilt I found online. The designer is Lynda Hall at Primitive Pieces by Lynda.

Leave me a comment if you'd like to work together this coming year on it.

  1. YES! I have this book. I have made 2 of the blocks. I have pulled all the fabric to make this quilt and there it sits, in a nice pile so please, please count me in.
    thanks

  2. I love the quilt--I just don't do the applique thing, so I'll sit on the porch and watch. As a child we used to end most summer days sitting out on our porch, or on the front lawn of our elderly neighbors. Who does this anymore? I miss it so!

  3. Hi Lori! I haven't commented in a long time, but lurk, still. :-) I have this book, too and love the quilt. I'd be in, but not until at least June because my daughter is getting married in May and I'm a little busy right now... ;-)

  6. Oh Lori, this would be fun! But TWQ is taking up my time and it is an applique project. Also, don't have the book, but looks like one I would like! Looking forward to sitting on the porch and watching the progress!! We love sitting on our porch! Wish the computer was out there!! LOL not really it is so nice to sit and do hand work on the porch!

    Blessings

  7. I love the quilt, and will think about a commitment. Plaids always make the most charming quilt. Anne is doing the BOM from another book on plaid houses, I'm crazy for wanting to do it all. Wasn't the weather fantastic this weekend, we baked at Boyce Corral, hmmmm, so wonderful. You also had quite the thundercloud going over you just as we were leaving, quite the light show.

  8. Ohhh another fun quilt to make. I will join the other lady and sit on the porch and work on my Farm Fresh quilt. I have little twinkle lights around my porch so its very enjoyable to sit and enjoy the evenings....

  9. Lori! I too, have this wonderful book and have been wanting to work on this. I seem to work better on things when I'm doing them along with others. You can count me in on this if you are going to go ahead with it!

    I love this book and the philosophy that goes along with 'a little porch time' :D

    Blessings,
    Sue

  14. Hi Lori,
    On my doll quilt blog, I just posted a picture taken on my front porch this morning! I don't have the book, but I'm tempted. Let me think about it. It's a beautiful quilt.

  15. I have the book and made one block a while back. It is brighter than I would like it to be. I have to decide whether to keep it in the mix or make another block. I will try to keep up with you.

  16. ohhh,ummmm,welllll, Good lord, why do you lead me into temptation! I have the book, so I should make it, right? OK, I'll follow along, I just can't promise to keep up.

  17. Well, I don't have the book! I love the quilt, though...I want the book! See how this goes? I just cannot resist things!

  18. I have the book and fabric. This is the perfect motivation for me. You can count me in!

  19. Sure, I'd like to join. Believe it or not, I am embarrassed to say, I signed up for this one as a BOM and never did it, put the scraps in my scrap bins, then bought it as a kit from Buggy Barn. So I must want it!

  20. Darling quilt. But can't commit to another new project! Hope you get some fellow quilt along gals to work wit you. It always make a project even more fun doing it that way.

  21. Hhhmmmmm..............I barely started this last year and put it away. Maybe I could get it out again after some projects get out of the way and in the finished pile.

  22. It looks like a lovely project Lori! I don't have the book, but I will be watching with great interest as you and your quilting team work your way through it - I particularly love the prim look of this quilt!!!!

  23. It's a wonderful quilt, I made it last year as a BOM with others on a Yahoo Prim group. We posted photos as we finished a section and that kept us all going. Enjoy doing your own quilt. Please be aware there are a few corrections available to cutting block sizes etc. I can give you a copy of them if you want.

  30. This is really neat, Lori. I love quilting so I totally enjoy the charm. So much so that if someone loved me to give me one (said with a smarty pants eyes rolling tone) oh… I'd treasure it and use it. But at the same time - it's not my thing. It might be too much work. Right? I can sure enjoy going along with everyone though. I have an open heart …just in case. I mean, you never know. *karendianne.

However I am making some changes for instance I didn't care to make Auntie Bean"s Stalks and have done a house block witn and anel instead. Can I still play if I don"'t follow the pattern exactly?
