Same gray skies this morning, altho they say the sun is out in Mpls/St Paul.....so maybe??? *VBG* There is hope. Also heard this is the 2nd gloomiest Jan. on record..yuk! Today's offering is a little doll quilt. It's about 18" X 20" with the 2 borders. I had worked on a colorwash piece, using 2" squares, and these were leftovers...20 little 4 patches. This may seem odd to you, but to quote Gwen Marston "when in doubt, make 4 patches". You can buy T-shirts at her web page that say that..or at least you used to be able to..not sure if they still have them or not. I got friend Betsy one for christmas one year...*VBG* machine pieced, hand quilted..you can see the cross hatching..every other square..every squares get crossed, but just once instead of twice. Posted by Picasa

Now a doll quilt I just might be able to make. I meant to take pictures of quintin and gabby's quilt squares. They both wanted to learn to sew so I started them on squares that I pinned together for them. Gabby's was barbie and quintins was batman designs. They were doing pretty good only had to take out a few stitches in the beginning.

What a pretty quilt, Finn.

I'd love to sit and run my hand over it and "see" the stitching.

What a great quilting idea, too.

Hugs.
