Quilt Along Addiction

Hi. My name is Kathy and I am a quilt-along-aholic.
I am powerless in the face of a quilt-along. I don't have time or space to start another project, but I will start one anyway. 
Because resistance is futile!
So fellow quilt-along-aholics...
did you join in Lori's Abundance quilt along?
This project is an antique reproduction, and she is calling it "Abundance". 
It is so cute and a perfect size to fit in between other could you resist?!?!
Here is my version of Abundance all quilted and bound.

I had a few little issues making this little project...
here is my version with the borders pieced incorrectly! 
Oh well, thankfully it was an easy problem to fix and it was a really fun project to work on.
Check out all the amazing Abundance quilts over at Humble Quilts.


  1. LOL I am part of your addiction group, but I only printed this one~ haven't actually sewn it yet. ;-) So many projects! Sew little time. ;-) Your little quilt turned out great. Have a happy weekend!

  2. Yep, my name is The Cuddle Quilter and I am a quilt addict. I just might have to make this one! Love yours!

  3. I did resist. BARELY! It's been a lot of fun to see all the different repro's though. Great finish for you.:)

  4. I am like you, I can't resist ! Beautiful quilt Kathy .

  5. So enjoyed this post. A great read with my morning coffee. My name is Sherry and I am a quilt-along-aholic too.

  6. Your "Abundance" is darling!! I too, have had trouble with "SAL addiction" - but alas, this time I've abstained - painfully I might add!!

    A Blessed Joyful Day!

  7. Well, there is no question about me being right there with you in this addiction!
    I love the little owl you have fussy cut for your center!
    Such cute fabric choices all around--and of course, you worked in some polka dots. : )
    Nice job, Kathy, from one quilt-along-aholic to another!

  8. It is so cute Kathy! I like the borders either way!! Your fabric is so much fun!!

  9. Your Abundance is adorable! I like that you used modern-style fabrics, but they still have a vintage feel. And the center block is precious!

  10. Love the colors in your Abundance quilt. Very pretty.

  11. You're such a hoot you powerless goddess you. Love your version(s) of Abundance! :)

  12. You'd think since it's such a small quilt, there wouldn't be any 'issues', but I had them, too. In the end, your quilt is lovely! I am also powerless when it comes to QALs.

  13. This one I didn't join in on, but know the feeling! Yours is very sweet with your fave colors :)

  14. Super job on your little Abundance quilt. I like your use of modern fabrics - very sweet rendition.

  15. Love your interetation with the modern fabrics, especially nice for St Valentines day! Happy stitching.

  16. oh yes, i am a quilt-along-aholic too. it's just too hard to resist~!

    your little abundace quilt is so cute and using the contemporary fabrics worked out very well~!
    i only had a flimsy at the time of the linky party but just this evening i put the last of the quilting stitches into mine. i'm looking forward to getting the binding on this weekend.
