Again and Again

The international on-line community of quilters
never ceases to astound me.

Bernie's 'Spread the Love' campaign
has been an amazing success,
and I have no doubt that Amy is 
overwhelmed with doll quilts to augment 'A Doll Like Me'.
For stats and an update,
please take a moment to visit Bernie's latest post.
I think you'll be astounded, too!

I am proud to be a participant,
and, as I declared in my New Year's post,
my intentions are to use my scraps as I generate them,
so I see this as a perpetual project.

From my scrappy Tilda Fabric corners,
after making Sweet Reminiscence
for the blog hop, I fashioned this sweet pinwheel quilt.

I included some of the larger scraps for doll clothes,
and slipped it into yesterday's mail to 

On my recent visit to North Texas,
my quilter friend generously donated some already made 3" blocks
that she had acquired from the estate of another quilter.

Since I couldn't wait to get my hands on them,
I whipped up a second doll quilt that would be suitable
to accompany a boy doll.

A peek at the backing.

Again and again,
when the word gets out,
quilter's respond!
Amy of A Doll Like Me should be all set for awhile!
Way to go, Bernie!!!
I'd like to take this opportunity to congratulate the winners
of my little give away from my blog hop post.
The random number generator chose:

Carol S.
& Ioleen

to each receive a Fondle Your Fabric decal.
They have been contacted by email,
and their decals will be sent out in Monday's mail!

If you'd like a Fondle Your Fabric decal,
please contact me by email.
The Etsy shop is out of stock at the moment,
but that doesn't mean we can't take care of you!
They make great gifts, are easy and inexpensive to mail
(just slip them into a card),
and look great on mugs and water bottles, too.

Enjoy your day!

Thanks for visiting,

Thank you Karen - for sewing these sweet doll quilts and for your kind thoughts on this project. I am so happy to have you as a friend. :-)

These are just so cute. I had seen your sweet confection of pinwheels on Instagram, but this little nine-patch number is wonderful, too. Isn't it amazing how quilters just happen to have just the right thing for a quilt when it's needed? Your friend had the blocks in the perfect size for a top and you had the exact backing to match. It was meant to be!!

Sheila said...

You are such a kind and generous soul, these doll quilts are just adorable and will be loved by the recipients for sure ❤💕

Cute little doll quilts! I love making doll quilts because they're quick and easy, and a great way to use up scraps. Your links didn't work on my computer, but I'm going to try to find out more info on this project, if it's not too late.

Lovely little quilts! I like the idea of using up your scraps as you go along - definitely beats cramming them into a bag and then pretending they're not there.
