Joining in, sewalong style.

Whew, the year is just flying by! How are we almost to Thanksgiving? I’ve been working away on holiday gifts, but today I’ve got a fun new project to share. My love of Lori Holt’s quilt designs is well documented, so I had a hard time resisting the new sewalong for Lori’s Prim & Proper Quilt:

Can we just take a moment? I love this sweet nod to tradtition. Cross-stitching was my very first craft and I love the “cross-stitched” border! The quilt is all traditionally pieced and Lori writes very clear patterns, so I am very excited to try my hand at this one.

I am using Prim fabrics and it’s been a lot of fun pulling different combinations. The one thing I can say for sure, is there is going to be a lot of pink in my quilt!

Today is the kick-off for week 1. For my flowers, I opted for these pretty teals with gold centers. My sewing machine supervisor mostly approved, but he kept getting distracted during the process.

That’s it for this week, be sure to stay tuned on Instagram for my progress over the next seven weeks. There are lots of other sewists joining in and I’m already loving their flower blocks. I can’t wait to see this one come together!


Happy making!
