Final Sneak Peek of Doll Quilt Exchange


Well this is the 2nd and final little Sneak Peek of the doll quilt I'm making for Carolyn. Sorry I can't show you any more of it yet. Once Carolyn receives it then I'll post a picture of the finished piece. I'll be mailing this off to Carolyn on Monday.

If you'd like to see some of the finished quilts from this exchange - there will be pictures posted on Christine's Blog around the 10th of March.

6 little JANES for the week



After a couple fairly easy weeks, I chose to hand piece and/or applique' most of my little Janes this time around. The first block was my favorite - Snowflake Melt. In part for it's vibrant Valentine red hue and for the snow flakes that settled upon my windowsill this week while I was sewing it.

H-9 Snowflake Melt - 16 pieces, hand applique' and machine sewn
H-6 Pie Sale - 21 pieces, hand sewn
H-1 Peek-a-Boo - 20 pieces, machine sewn
G-13 Molly's Muffins - 13 pieces, hand and machine sewn
H-5 Michaels Motorcycle - 20 pieces, machine sewn
G-11 Decisions, Decisions - 13 pieces, hand applique' and machine sewn

I completed my 80th block this week!
It feels so good to say that...(grin)

All caught up on 1880's Sampler blocks


I confess, I made a couple of the easier blocks out of order first.
(shhhh..... let's keep this just between us)
With a bit more time now and Cheryl's terrific block tutorials I was able to finish the final 2 of the 6 completed blocks thus far in the series.

The block shown above is block #15 and the one below is block #10.


Before I sit too comfy on my Chair of Accomplishments I am reminded that another wonderful block is soon to follow.

Sneak Peak - Doll Quilt Exchange



This is a tiny peek at the doll quilt I am working on for Carolyn.
We are participating in a doll quilt swap hosted by Christine over at Once Upon a Quilt.
I decided to make Carolyn's little quilt a bit scrappy using 1800's reproduction prints and a bit of hand applique'. I'll post a larger "peek" next week. One of the entire quilt will have to wait until the exchange has been completed.
(just a few weeks from now)

Richmond - block #6



Living in Virginia, I am very partial to this weeks block!
I am sure it will remain a favorite for me when this quilt is done.
For those that are following....I did not post block #5 Kansas Troubles to my blog last week. But here it is - completed just the same.

I have several more project updates to post this week.
Time to get my sewing machine humming again!
