Fabulous Friday!

It seems like this week has flown by. Last weekend I had company and a meeting with my CPA and ended up sick on Sunday afternoon so it felt like my days off went fast. I'm hoping for a little slower weekend. 

I may have showed this already. It is part of a design by Rebekah Smith

Here's the first month of a mystery quilt designed by her as well. She has shown us the inspiration photo, but I still don't know what to expect.
 I've quilted my liberated baskets and am calling it Bounty of Baskets. I actually might quilt one more line in between.
I'm going to finish it first before I decide. 

Label and binding ready to be applied. 

Here's a sneak peak at the backing of a little quilt top I made (UFO). I am going to get it layered and quilted for the doll quilt swap, which I'll be setting up soon. You can read about the past two swaps HERE and HERE and HERE.   If you want to participate I'd like to know you in some way or have seen comments on my blog from you. If you are part of my Facebook group that doesn't mean you'll be in automatically. If you know you'll likely be participating it's not too early to start thinking about what quilt you will make.
Here's my instagram feed this week. 

Have a wonderful weekend. 


  1. Love your liberated baskets.. have been wanting to make this one for quite awhile. Love it in the repro fabrics!

  2. Your wool work is so beautiful! I love the Liberated baskets and I don't recognize that glorious blue serpentine fabric in the first basket. How did that one get past me? I had so much fun with your last doll Q swap, I'd love to participate in another.

  3. I'm glad you're feeling better! The wool appliqué is very pretty - I don't remember seeing it before. I will look forward to the doll quilt swap!

  4. I have seen many bloggers making Rebekah Smith designs. Very popular right now and I can understand why.
    Looking forward to the doll quilt swap.

  5. Love your baskets ! And I'm in for the doll swap !
    Thank you ! :)

  6. I really love your Bounty of Baskets. I admire your wool work. I can't seem to get into it. Hugs

  7. Very pretty backing :0) Sure can't wait to see the front. Another doll quilt swap - yeah!

  8. You re brave to do the wool sew along! Whatever can it be?
    Great baskets I had the book out again the other day. Still don't get it I ll have to do a hands on mock up I think

    Take it easy! Feel better

  9. Lovely wool projects Lori, when I looked at the second one I thought tree. Then my second look I saw an elegant lady with long gloves waiting to have bracelets and chains draped on her arms...but wai she has four arms....must be a tree! Or she has a friend hiding behind her...have a great weekend.

  10. Rebekah Smith designs are just the best, hope you are feeling better

  11. The wool appliqué is beautiful, I haven't try yet to do something. I do love your basket specially the tallest.
    I would like to be in the swap, but I'm not sure that I'm enough able to participate.
    Have a great weekend!

  12. That second wool block has me very curious!
    I really like your backing on the little quilt--can't wait to see the front.

  13. I'd love to participate in another Doll quilt Swap. The liberated Basket is fun. Great job getting nearer to a finish. Hope the sicky feeling stays away this weekend.
