Cookie Party

Every year, my friend Kate hosts a Valentine cookie baking party. We send the cookies to our respective children, in college, graduate school, or all grown up, on their own.

Quilt inspiration, anyone?

Here is my finished doll quilt, "Abundance," from Lori's Quilt-a-Long.  I tried to copy the original vintage quilt as much as I could, using fabrics from my stash.  I was delighted to use leftover cheddar scraps from one of Lori's previous quilt-a-longs, Cheddar Cheese and Crackers.  Lori's quilt-a-longs are so much fun to do.  Her directions are clear and easy to follow and I am always pleased with the result.  This one is very small, only 12 1/2" x 12 1/2".  I hand-quilted it, following her design, and of course, it took no time at all!

Thanks, Lori!
