Fun on Friday

I'm out of the country right now, but have my feet up relaxing after a very active day in Whistler. Unfortunately my last 2 getaways I've had no hand work. I am going to have to remedy that as soon as I get home.
I'm not ready to show this applique yet, but I used this fun print from my late friend, Jill. I love how she creeps into almost all of my quilts. 
E, Pluribus unum- Out of many, one.

I've started on my fall little quilt for a quiltalong and I'm using a mix of French General fabrics.  This year we will be making a medallion style quilt. (if this one works out)

I'm having a lovely summer! I hope you are too. 

I'll leave you with this today.  Forgive, say sorry when you are wrong, don't waste your time with toxic people, if you really want to go somewhere special- save your money and find a way to do it. 
 Say what needs to be said. Be bold, be brave! Say I love you to those you love!


  1. Love that Jill's fabrics keep creeping into your projects. I still have some of hers, too. Can't wait to see your little medallion quilt and looking forward to making one with you!

  2. Oh I look forward to your sew alongs so much Lori :0). Yes I love to travel with some hand quilting, it keeps me calm when travels throws delays and unexpected twists into the day, then I can sit and wait happily with my project. Safe travels Lori

  3. You’re just teasing us today :0) Lovely fabrics and I can’t wait to see what they’re becoming. What no handwork?!? It’s always the first thing I pack! I hope you have a great trip!

  8. Can't say I've ever seen a quilt with French General fabrics that I didn't LOVE!
    Hope you have a fun getaway this weekend.
