Abundance Finale

 I really wish I would have had fabric that was closer to the original, but I'm still happy with it.

 My backing is a simple blue and pink print.
 I opted to write my quilt info on the binding, instead of a separate label. I used one of my faded pink prints for the binding.

This almost looks like my quilting stitches! LOL  I used photoshop to highlight the areas that are quilted on the original.


Thanks for playing along!! We will have a Linky party next week so we can see all the doll quilts!

  4. Oh, this is the message, which I just now need! Because I played with my version of Abundance this morning, I just basted it and now I'm trying to figure out the quilting. Thank you, Lori, for this lovely sew along! I'll go back to Abundance...

  9. This was a fun, stress-free little QAL, Lori. Thanks! And I appreciate the quilting diagram (aren't you funny about your stitches). I do want to hand quilt this one and I like the way the original was done.

  10. I'm loving working on this little project. Quilting is about 75% complete, and differs from the pattern you've shown just a bit, well maybe more than a little bit! It will be fun to see what everyone has come up with at next week's linky party. Thanks for putting this together - I hope you'll do another one or two in coming months!

  13. Such a pretty little quilt. The little bit of pink makes it sing. I like the photo shopped quilt lines.
    I am just finishing sorting and organizing my UFOs. Struggling with lots of neck pain so not sewing much.
    Looking forward to seeing all the links.

  15. Cute little Quilt and the story that goes with it! Sorry I missed the QAL this time. I hate when LIFE and Death take over my quilting time. But I'm back to stitching this week.

  16. Thanks for the little doll quilt along, Lori. It was fun to do! Hope there will be more!

  17. Thanks Lori! I may do this one twice! I would like to try it with another color combination also. It was fun. I will be machine quilting it though - if I had quilted, it would not get finished. It is odd that there is vertical hand quilting on the four little hourglass parts, isn't it?

  21. Thanks for the fun Lori. Such a gorgeous little quilt. Mine has turned out a bit pinker than yours but I love it. I'm thinking of hand quilting it so it may take a little while to finish.

  22. I really want to handquilt mine too. Thanks for the quilting diagram :0) This was such a fun little project - Thanks so much!!

  23. Lori, the tiny quilt looks adorable! The choics you made for the back and binding could not be more perfect and delightful. Of course I want to know what that backing fabric is? And I am guessing you do not have a picture of the original's backing?

    I love the idea of putting the info on the binding, however over the years the most common repair I make on antique quilts is to replace the binding. [I actually just cover the original, to preserve the history]. And so, the info could get lost. For large or heirloom quilts...a dear friend taught me to embroider my name and date *under* the binding, on the back, always in the same spot, so you know where it is..then covering this with the binding. A label too...but the hidden embroidered writing was for longevity, and also, sadly, to protect against theft/ loss.

    I am so intrigued, in your previous post, by a partially shown quilt that seems to be an American flag, plus sawtooth borders. What could it BE!?
    :-) I would so love to see it.

    thanks, as always, lizzy

    1. Hi Lizzy, I cannot find your email address! When I click on your name it brings me to google + not your blog profile.
      Good point about the binding and where to sign your name.
      I'll be showing the sawtooth border project soon!!

  25. Beautiful Lori!

    I have just finished my top (after fixing a little blooper!) and I am looking forward to finishing it and hand quilting it. Thank you for posting the quilting design.

    Thank you very much for another great Quiltalong, Lori!

  26. I just loved doing this little project, my 'Abundance' is basted and marked now ready for quilting! I played around with slightly different quilting lines, it shouldn't take too long to do! Thankyou so much for sharing this dear little quilt, you have made a lot of quilters very happy campers!!!!!

  29. hi Lori.
    i've enjoyed this quick little quilt-along too. i finished up yesterday but decided to add an upper and lower border today. i'll be piecing a backing for it tomorrow and then getting it layered for hand quilting. i strayed quite a bit from the color suggestions and may decide to tea dye it once it's quilted . . . it will be interesting to see what cuties that the linky party will reveal.
    thank you for once again hosting the cutest little dolly quilt-alongs on the web.

    :-)
