A Bountiful LIfe...A Civil War Bride's Quilt!

 Well, I have been working on my Jubilee quilt, "A Bountiful Life".  Today I prepared the Bride's block...and it took almost all day.  Truly, all day!  I love it, though, it is a work of great fun...and I can't wait to have her features embroidered on.  Then she will take a personality and life for me!  I am loving this project!!
 Remember the gifted plaids from my friend Ruth at the quilt shop?  I put all the blocks together into this little quilt.  I just need a border, of which I have no suitable fabric, so I will have to go back to the quilt shop...poor little me, LOL!!
A big thanks to Michelle!  I recently won these beautiful fun fabrics from her blog...thank you so much, Michelle!  Please visit her HERE!



Hope everyone is having a wonderful day!!!

That is a wonderful block and I can believe it took all day. I think I spend more time on the appliqué than the sewing.

Your Bountiful Life block is gorgeous, inspirational! I want to applique and as soon as I finish the baby blanket that's in the hoop right now and free up my 'hands', I'm on it!!
