"Faithful" Quilt-A-Long

this weekend i spent some time finishing up a small quilt-a-long piece . . . well, to the flimsy stage anyway.
this was hosted by Lori of Humble Quilts and was inspired by a larger quilt that she made. you will see a portion of her bigger one within her header as well as some doll sized versions if you pop over for a visit today.

i decided to go with a fall(ish) color scheme. 
i also changed my outer border sizes slightly in an attempt to get it rectangular. it's still not quite the rectangle that i want it to be so i will add a bit more to the top and bottom using the same hand dyed fabric that i used in the first tiny border.
the first and second unpieced borders are my own hand dyed fabrics. the third unpieced border is a cheddar colored solid that i had on hand.

i felt a bit rushed in the photography of it and so the photo shows it being wonkier than it actually is . . . it did sew up a bit humble though.  ;-)   this was a fun little diversion. i'm not sure when i'll actually get it quilted but i'll be sure to share/show it again once that happens.

thank you Lori for hosting yet another wonderful doll quilt quilt-a-long for us all to enjoy.

i'll be linking up today for the show and tell over at Humble Quilts.

recent gifts include:
  • snuggling with a book on a cloudy/rainy/snowy morning
  • getting my sick gracie to eat a little bit of breakfast
  • enjoying a walk around "our" beautiful mountain lake with my wonderful husband and Suki
  • remembering the many and various joys of making my own bread


  1. Lovely little quilt! Wonderful colors!

  2. Such a great little quilt! Really sweet version.:)

  3. Lovely! The block fabric (the amoeba style) goes so well with the hand dyed!! Fantastic!

  4. Hey Libby! I love the creativity of your blog! So glad we happened upon each other through our mutual project, Faithful! I love art journals, but don't have a lick of artistic creativity in me. I also like the title of your blog, as I taught high school English for 30 years, and loved teaching poetry. I will keep following!

  5. So pretty with all those browns and reds going on. So much movement in this little block!

  6. Yours turned out beautifully! I love the hand dyed fabrics in there though I would not have thought of doing that. It really says fall!

  7. Very nice colors with your beautiful hand dyed fabrics and movement with your placement of HSTs. Enjoying your photography on the wordless Wednesday posts, very creative blog!

  8. Nice colors!

  9. I really like your fall colors. It is so much fun to see all the versions of Faithful!

  10. Really nice in your different fabrics. Well done!

  11. Nicely done! Love the colors you choose.

  12. great quilt along quilt - love the fabric in your 9patch!

  13. I love it. The colors are fantastic. This has been a great sew a long. I only wish I had time to do more. Hugs

  14. Baking bread symbolizes long mornings for me! I loved being home long enough to go through all the steps and have that lovely prize at the end!
    VERY pretty quilting, Libby Q!

  15. Love how you twisted the half square triangles on the second pieced border. Your hand dyed fabric has wonderfully rich color. I'll enjoy seeing this pretty quilt quilted. Sounds like you are enjoying the colder weather. Me, too!
