Jo Morton Meet Lori Smith

Some leftover nine patch blocks of Jo Morton fabrics with Lori Smith's Fat Quarter Quilting pattern makes for one cute little quilt top!


A few close ups so you can see that pretty brown print.

Now for some quilting!

We're a lover of CW repro fabrics if we understand the title of your post with no other explanation. I would be one of those.
I also have several Lori S patterns, plus her book, and not a one has been made yet.
This little quilt is adorable. Thanks for the great photos so we can see all the Jo fabrics closeup.

Mary, I've been out of town for a couple of days but just popped in to say 'Howdy'. I love your new countertops, they are beautiful. This quilt is going to be wonderful (well it is already...but) after you put your magic finishing touches on it. Can't wait to see it quilted. Well, I'd better go finish unpacking, LOL. Hugs...

Stitched With Prayer said...

OH...forgot to tell you, I am finally getting my very own sewing room, custom cutting/work table, shelves, cabinets, the whole works...more on that later. Hugs again, LOL...

Count me in among the "lovers," Mary! :-) I have a pretty good collection of Jo fabrics and several of her Little Jo patterns and kits -- they make fabulously rich beautiful small quilts -- just like yours! Now if I would only sew them up.... LOL

What a great little quilt. Is there any Jo fabric you DON'T own? I'm guessing you saw this month's American Patchwork and Jo's house. I wish they had shown a little more of her studio but what I could see was just yummy!

The quilt looks so pretty...I love the fabrics that you used.
