2013 Quiltalong- Abundance

Here's the little vintage doll quilt we will be reproducing. Adorable,  huh?
All the fabrics are printed. As you look through your scraps there are 2 different faded pinks in this little cutie and two double pinks.  The "plain" looking blocks are a light pink stripe and the flying geese with the brown print have a faded pink as well.
The hourglass blocks are a printed/faded tan and blue/brown checked.
As hard as I tried I couldn't find a gold/cheddar that didn't look completely pukey. I'm sure someone will put it in there anyway and it will look super charming, I opted not to.
Isn't it adorable? I'm calling it Abundance. It is so easy to take things for granted. As we move on into 2013 I want to be thankful for the Abundance I have, including family, friendship, health, food, a house, a paycheck and a substantial fabric stash.
Now, you've got the weekend to search through your scraps. I'm not telling you how much you need because it is such a small amount. You may opt to make 4 blocks and put them together. The one I made finishes at 12".
Come back Monday for directions!!

  16. Welll, I think I might be able to do this darling quiltalong. Yes, I too, live in an "abundance" world. I'm trying to purge one thing every day. Why do I have mis matched coffee mugs bursting out of my cupboard? Not anymore!

  20. Oh Lori I just love it! The antique one is so sweet! I can just imagine a little girl with her doll wrapped up all snug in her little quilt :0) I enjoyed studying all the different prints with you. Yours is such a lovely reproduction. I will definitely have to make this one!

  29. What a little sweetie! I love your interpretation and its neighbors hanging together; it successfully captures the essence even without the cheddar. :-) Just wish I had more "faded" prints in my stash to choose from.

  37. I'm definitely in. Cute quilt, great name for it, and the quiltalong will be fun to follow, as they always are. I'm heading to my stack of yellow repros right now, looking for some pukey gold or cheddar. I love treasure hunts like this :)

  41. Just caughting up and found your post. Abundance is a great name for this quilt because we have a great abundance of fabrics to choose from unlike the hands that made this antique guilt I would think.
    I think this little gem is going to be moving to the top of my smalls list. I certainly have an abundance in my stash and some great cheddars. Thanks for the wonderful inspiring post.
    May this year be an abundance of blessing to you and your family.
