Some Littles

I thought I would share some of the Doll Quilts ( DQ) I have made…and a little quilt I also made for my friend Donna.

I started a Doll Quilt Swap (DQS) on FB. I started it several months ago and it’s been so much fun. It grows every month and the talent is AMAZING! All skill levels are welcome. It’s a great time to meet new people, try something new and finish a little project each month. I really like it. Trust me ..none of my projects have been perfect. I will share.

I made this Bee quilt in August…so Cute! I got it from a Row by Row book ( Lori Holt..I think?)…..I used a new binding technique. You can try it here.

That is from my LQS. Yes, The Famous Cindi.

But I cut the border around the quilt to large…and when I made the binding from the tutorial it covered half of my border. Which means=not a perfect quilt…but it was a perfect way to learn a new technique.

 

I made this one for Marie for my September Swap…..She and I agree upon a Halloween them. I just kind of made it all up as I went. But I used my new Cameo Silhouette to cut out the letters….and it was my first time…it was a learning curve. Not perfect…but it works for Halloween.  🙂

I also made this little quilt for my friend Donna. She doesn’t do embroidery…and I just wanted to make it for her.  I can’t ever photograph embroidery very well. It looks WAY better in person. But I wanted to give it to her before December. So I finished this over the weekend. I used the Magic Miter technique on this one as well..just cut around it a bit smaller. I will mater it one of these days. 🙂

The saying says “God gave a star… and with it’s light made a path for wandering Shepherds to see. God gave a song….and angels sang the verses of a melody. God gave a child…and in the manger lay the gift of all eternity.”

I am going to make another one for myself as well.  I just wanted to share what’s going on with all of these little quilts.

If you are interested in joining our DQS..please do! We Welcome you! Just friend me on FB and I will add you. It’s a month to month swap…so you only commit on the months you are available.   No pressure.

Have a great day!
