Quilts for Preemies

Quilts for Preemies is the latest charitable project on the "Just Us Quilters" FB page.
Since my son was a preemie 30+ years ago, I knew I had to make something for this project.
I loved this baby girl fabric so much I hated to cut it so I decided to make a whole fabric quilt and cross-hatch quilt it.

Downton Abbey Mystery Quilt

It's been awhile...to bring you up to date...

My "word" for 2014 is "abundance." My purpose in choosing "abundance" is to be thankful every day for the abundance in my life.

Since November I have been working on the Downton Abbey Mystery Quilt Along. I chose the Lady Sybil fabrics for my quilt. My quilt top is finally pieced, ta-dah!


The DA quilt was designed by Ebony Love with a few additions and substitutions by me. I added the appliqu├ęd flowers to the solid blocks and substituted a Lady Dowager fabric for one of Sybil's. It was a challenging process and now the fun begins...should I hand or machine quilt?
