End of the month update; mini quilt and applique!

Cathy and I have been making this applique quilt together!!!  Mrs. Lincoln's quilt...you can find the pattern here: 


Lori Smith Quilts: From my heart to your hands

 We are nearing the end of our journey.  Above is my latest applique block, the pineapple.  I have four more applique blocks to complete, and I will have the center together.  Whoop!!!  This feels good to have made some progress!!!



I have run out of the sashing material, so will have to improvise.




 Here is my mini of the month.  It is 2 inch nine patches, leftovers from the pineapple blocks I made earlier in the year.  I used a thin piece of flannel for the batting, and hand quilted it.  I love the soft, drapable texture.  


Please see Wendy's blog here, for lots of of mini quilts!

Woo Hoo. Your blocks are looking so good. I've got all my blocks put together except for the last row. After next month I will have the top all sewn together. Have you chosen your border fabric? Can't wait to see your finish. Hugs

What a perfect summer mini! So sweet. I love using leftovers to make minis and this one is perfect. Thanks for another great one. Your Lori Smith blocks are really adding up!!

Hopefully you can find more of the sashing fabric. Cute mini!

All of those blocks you made for Mrs. Lincoln's Sampler? That's how far ahead of me you are. LOL Yes, I haven't made the first one yet! I've had the pattern for two years. I will have to see if I can even find it. It's so pretty with your soft gray sashing. I know I have a half dozen grays, and not one would match. It might even be a blue! So gorgeous! The mini sounds like torture - 3 units into two inches. It's cute as anything, though.

Happy end of August!

Mrs. Lincoln is so wonderful. The pineapple block is the best, I keep thinking I am going to make a quilt out of pineapple blocks only.

Your July mini looks just like summer, bright colors, blue skies and lots of light.
