doll quilt exchange

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.

new pattern

I'm writing up directions to make a pattern I call "Party Line". Watch for it to be posted here soon.
This time of year I love to work with the '30s reproductions and their Easter Egg colors.

doll quilt exchange

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.
