I finished the quilting and binding of this little Abundance quilt today.  I just love that name.  It really makes me feel blessed.  This was a design from Humble Quilts.

I also quilted a donated top from the local quilt guild.  Someone had several bolts of fleece that they no longer wanted, so we were given a top and a fleece backing to put together. No batting needed.  After sewing them together, I trimmed the fleece to 3/4",  folded it over, and zig zagged it on the top.  This seemed like it all was pretty easy, but somehow came out a bit wavy on the edge.  Still very usable.  It is a comfort quilt to be given to the pediatrics ward at a local hospital.

Hope you have a happy Valentines Day!


  1. I agree with you about the Abundance name. I usually like to come up with my own quilt name, but on this one I'm not so sure.
    Yours is very pretty--I like the addition of the green color.

  2. Love your Abundance block! The colorful donated top is perfect for a pediatric ward. How nice of you to finish it... warms the heart, doesn't it?

  3. I just found your blog today via Judi's Design Wall Monday and am enjoying it very much! It seems we have take part in some of the same projects! I made an Abundance quilt too and am also part of the small quilt talk group on Yahoo. I am originally from Wisconsin as well. I love your work!
