Simple Abundance 2: The Return of Simple Abundance

Fat Quarterly quiltalong: check! Well, the top is finished anyway. This is a really easy and quick quilt. It just takes one jelly roll.

I used the leftovers from my Scruffily quilt, so they look like little quilty cousins.

I got to try out my brand new 1/4 inch foot, which definitely made my piecing more accurate. See how those seams match up? That's new! (Psst...they don't all look like that!)

I didn't plan out my squares very well, so I ended up with a few scrappy ones, but that's okay.

I'm not sure what I'm going to do for the back, so this one is on hold for now. That leave me with just one quiltalong (still working on Tracey's). So the logical thing to do was join another one. (That is the logical thing to do....right?) I love Rachel's Colorbrick quilt, so I'm quilting along with her.

Fall colorbrick
I set aside this pile awhile ago, and I think it's going to make a cool fall Colorbrick.

P.S. I'm so glad Modern Family is back on. Dang, I love that show.

Are you making, what, a whole quilt every week now? This is pretty, by the way, and I love the fabric for your next quilt.

Modern family lived up to my expectations last night. Glad it's back.

And the quilt looks great.

Very pretty! I also did this design as a scrappy quilt, and I love it! All my centers were the same fabric though. My back was just four big pieces of fabric out of my stash, which worked because mine was VERY scrappy! And thanks for letting me know about the Colorbrick quiltalong - I hadn't seen that one!

I love Simple Abundance. I am still working on mine. I used a jelly roll to make the cover quilt from "Let the Good Times Roll" and ended up taking all the setting triangles back off yesterday. Somehow I screwed that up and they were too small.

Probably I should have gone with a simpler layout. Your's is perfect!

You quilt is adorable. Hard to believe it only used one jelly roll!

Mondern Family is one of our favs too!

Yummy. I love jelly rolls. :)

Are you going to name this one "Blankety" in honor of your fave show?

I have just stumbled on your blog. Literally! I clicked "next blog" on the blogger header of my blog to see where it would go! Two clicks later and I was at your blog. So, I've now added you to my Google reader and I can't wait for your next update :) Great quilts! Thanks for sharing.
