Lori at Humble Quilts organized a Doll Quilt exchange and I am the fortunate recipient of Sandy Helin's adorable piece. Sandy blogs at My Material Creations.
The blocks finish 4 inches, and the quilt measures 18 1/2 by 13 inches.
She chose fabrics with care, hand quilted it. and used a butted binding that she has a tutorial for on her blog. I am going to have to try that soon. And, I love the backing fabric!
Thank you, Sandy, for this wonderful quilt, and Lori, for making it happen.

Lori over at Humble Quilts has organized a doll quilt exchange. I finished up one of the little quilts I made with Temecula Quilt Company's "12 Days of Christmas" sew-a-long with both machine and hand quilting on it.
For the back I used a piece of wonderful Jeff Gutcheon fabric I have hoarded for 30 years.
On its way tomorrow to its new owner!
Thanks, Lori, for this fun exchange.

Made with re-purposed shirts.
The pieced bars are made with the "serendipity snakes" method described earlier, from 2 inch cut strips. The red is Kona Rich Red. The larger plaid bars and borders are from 6 1/2 cut inch strips.
Quilted by Suzette Fisher.

The top is complete!
I used 2 inch cut scraps and Kona Punch for the constant.
Thank you, Terry for the sew-a-long at Terry's Treasures.
Now, off to the quilter.
Yes, it is snowing again! I love winter, and am feeling a bit guilty for this pleasure when I know so many are hating it.
