Preparing to Make More Doll Quilts



I'm not working today and I may not be tomorrow either as the weather forecasters are predicting ice and snow. I'm spending some time quilting a full size four patch quilt pieced by my husband's great-aunt Clara.(see my other blog, All the Rest of My Life for a photo of that).

I also found some blocks in her scrapbag and plan to use these to make a couple of more doll quilts.

It looks like you will have a very enjoyable day off! I am off today as well...think I will put the border on a WIP and maybe get it ready to quilt. I really do not like pinning a large quilt, but once that is done, I can start quilting! Have a great day!

I wish I had a great Aunt with a scrapbag... those are nice starts for a doll quilt. Enjoy your day off.

Monique, I think that was the way that most doll quilts would have been started. A little girl's doll was in need of a quilt, so Mom looked through her orphan blocks and scrap bag and a little doll quilt was quickly stitched.

That's very true, Bobbie. I hadn't thought of that.
