It's beautiful! I love your choice of fabrics !!

Love the corner pockets and next wall quilt, I shall make some of those. Love them.

Nice lettering on your signature piece. Very nice indeed!

So you did enjoy hand quilting with the Mountain Mist Cotton Cream Rose?


Your Abundance quilt is so cute, and I really love your choice of fabrics. I wasn't too thrilled with the outcome of mine, so I put a small light blue order around it and now it doesn't seem so dull. I should have used some cheddar to make it pop a bit.


It looks beautiful! I think the colors look much like the original. Nicely handquilted too :0) The lettering is very fun.

Lovely! Did you hand print the label or is it computer generated and if so which font? I'll look forward to seeing the next installment.


Gorgeous Jan! Must go and finish mine. I've never seen that type of pocket for hanging before - great idea.

I am not good at somewhat decorative lettering. You seem to be. I downloaded a bunch of fonts so I could trace and get the look. But I don't think of it when I make a quilt label.


That's adorable Jan! I LOVE LOVE LOVE your lettering too -- what a fun idea!

Your Abundance turned out great! I realized too late that I had intended corner pockets on mine; now it's either a tiny sleeve or just pin it right to the wall.

I like your idea of making several variations of the same little quilt at once, but you're so right: too many ideas; too little time.

Fun lettering!


That is super adorable! I always do the corner triangles on my AAQI quilts, I'm not sure why I hadn't thought to incorporate them into this little quiltalong.

I love your quilt, Jan! I had never tried the corners until I made the AAQI quilts. I love them now.


A very pretty version of the Abundance quilt. Lori's projects always look fun to make!

So Sweet! I love the colors of antique quilts. you are being very productive, I am motivated to get off the computer and go make something!
I love your lettering - calligraphy is fun. what kind of pens do you use for labels? I recently saw a quilt I made for a niece about 10 years ago. It has been washed & loved, and the label disappeared. Luckily I had a photo of the label so was able to re-create it, but I thought I had used something permanent.


I like this one very much! So smart the backing and the "pockets" in the corners. Thank you for sharing. I will make this one!

Cheryl Miller

Love your fabric choices! That cheddar is a favorite of mine!


Lovely little rendition of Abundance.

Pat Taylor

A great version of the Abundance quilt - and like the way you did the back for hanging! Glad you showed your label - a good reminder to make one up.


Nice!!! You still have fabric left from 1975? Really?


your mix of fabrics came together beautifully and it turns out that i remember 'interviewing' the same cheddar that you have used for my little 'Abundance' piece. i did end up choosing another but love them both~!!~


btw: your 'quirky lettering' label is wonderful~!!!~


Your Abundance quilt is lovely. I like to use the corner pieces for hanging my little quilts, too.


So cute! Your fabrics are nice and bright - gives it a modern intensity. I like the label and the hanging pieces. This is really fun to look at.

I am looking at everyone's blocks this evening. Interesting to see all the fabric choices. I just sewed mine this evening.

Kyle Redente

Your Abundance block is striking and really resembles the original.The pink corner fabric made me smile because those fabrics were the start of my collection too. And, of course, like you, I still have pieces saved for someday!
