Bountiful Blessings

In December I began a gift quilt using a festive Laurel Burch center. This was a purchased fabric, intended for a lap quilt I wanted to create for a young couple.

I fell in love with the colors and the wonderful design work. And of course, the printed messages which were mindful of holiday cheer and wonder:

  • A Bounty of Bliss and Blessings
  • Many Moments of Magic Making
  • A Treasure Trove of Treats
  • A Season of Songs and Savories

I pulled prints and hand dyed cottons from my stash. I also bought two companion prints for this quilt’s borders. I love the black squiggly worms and those wacky evergreens! Worms and evergreens…what a crazy combo for a quilt, but that’s the Laurel Burch style.

I used my longarm for this quilt and custom-stitched free-form feathers, in the ditch lines, a squared meandering geometric, specific designs, squiggly lines, and basic meandering.

The finished quilt, Bountiful Blessings, finished at 60″ square. I had it ready to wrap up for a Christmas gift just in time!

They loved the quilt and I loved making the quilt — a good holiday gift for us all.

    Love the fabric, and love the quilt. Isn’t the fabric by Laurel Burch, though, rather than Paula?
