Jubilee

 The last time I shared  my Jubilee quilt I had one pot on one corner. I don't have them all appliqued down, but I am making progress. I'm trying to stay focused.
Here are a few more blocks that came in for my Jubilee quilt. I am hoping to start adding sashing when I have a good block of time the week before the Sisters show.  Thanks friends!!

  1. That quilt is going to be awesome! I can't wait to see it finished. I'm really missing OR right now. Yesterday was my GD's birthday and we have been there for it for the last several years. Boo Hoo!

  2. Your Jubilee quilt design is wonderful! The green around the center section really makes the center pop. The corner designs around that is just perfect. A+.

  6. Lori I clicked onto your blog from Cathy at Potter Jotter, and was straightaway thinking 'I like the cut of her jib'! Have read your recent posts and find lots that strike a chord with me. Especially the magazine post. I touched on the topic of magazine disappointment soe weeks ago, but your post was dynamite!

    I was so envious, yeasr ago when i began quilting, that our Britush mags were so poor in comparison to yours, and I subscribed to Quilters' Newsletter for years - even the adverts were exciting! Later I found the same excitement in the Australian quilting mags. The British ones improved somewhat, then there was a gradual decline everywhere. Partly, I suppose, you get experienced and don't rate the basic designs any more, but they have got very samey. And if I see another quilt made up of squares, in red and aqua, i will scream!
    Quiltmania, though expensive, has some great articles and designs, and I flirted with Cloth Payer Scissors and Quilting Arts but have let them all go. Dumbing down indeed - I hope they read and take note. Meanwhile I shall be visiting your blog often to see what you are getting stirred up about....and looking at your lovely quilts. Not a sign of red and aqua anywhere, so far!

  14. Loving the way this is turning out. Seeing pictures of it always makes me want to play with my cheddar.
    I decided to take a UFO and kinda convert it into my 42 jubilee. I'm using letters the way Barb (funwithbarb) does. I love that she appliques words, so I'm copying her. And of course there are the antique quilts with words that Bonnie has shown us too. Either way, I'm following along slowly. Maybe I'll get it done in time for my 50 th.hehe

  23. Hi, Lori. Stopped by from Quilting Bloggers--just had to say that I love your jubilee quilt--the colors and design may be traditional, but they certainly do dance and sing! Love the combination! Also found interesting your article on quilting magazines. I've proposed some of my ideas (which seem to me to be new) and have gotten rejections. The process always leaves me perplexed, but I publish on my blog anyway. Maybe the good, new and innovative stuff is in blogland now. Could the magazines be losing ground? Possibly.
