Design Wall Monday - September 20, 2021 from Small Quilts and Doll Quilts

Good Morning Quilters!  I decided to veer off into another subject related to doll quilts:  A spool doll bed.  I have regular doll beds and have some wooden thread spools saved to make doll furniture.  Have you ever made a doll bed with old wooden thread spools?  I would love to hear about your experience if you have, and also send me a picture.  Here are two pictures I have saved from the

How are you?  I had a birthday Thursday, and my internet friends kept me in smiles all day long.  Facebook puts me in touch with people I’ve known at various places/times throughout my life, and it brought me lots of good memories.   Plus all the telephone calls from children and close friends.  It was a birthday that made me feel very blessed, even though we didn’t go anywhere or do anything

Hi everyone.  Another Monday in isolation for us.  I see Bonnie Hunter is starting another mystery quilt to help quilters keep busy while we are isolated.  It starts today if you are interested.    I have only two projects with me at the cabin. 1) The baskets of flowers that you have seen in the past few weeks, and 2) a redwork squares quilt that I’ve been working on for ages.  This week I

Monday morning again, and my little world is calm, as I watch the bigger world change drastically.  We are staying at home, and I am working on my embroidery UFOs....very calming. I am praying for all those who have been laid off, that there will somehow be an ending to this virus.  And for jobs beginning again.  It is all so unreal to me.   Here are the two baskets I’ve worked on this

The 30 basket patterns have been researched somewhat and I have a little more information about them.  Last week, Annie O, of Annie’s Quilt Orts (Here) gave me more information and I thank you Annie.  I had wondered why the woman who designed them used so many French knots on each block.  The article Annie told me about is published in a Better Homes & Gardens special edition “Century of

March is here!  Not spring here in Michigan yet, but edging closer to it.  The birds are singing their cheerful spring songs.  My March UFO project hasn’t been pulled out yet; I will do that this week.  I will choose something spring like, I think. Last week I worked on some nine patch blocks for the next Churn Dashers of Tidewater Virginia exchange.  We are exchanging negative and positive

Design Wall Monday - February 24, 2020 from Small Quilts and Doll Quilts

My February UFO is ready to send to the machine quilter, and I have one more week left in the month!  Yeah me!  Here is the completed quilt top on the design wall: Since I had an extra week before a March UFO, I pulled out an embroidery basket project that I’d only finished two blocks for.  I am pleased to report that I have three finished now, and #4 is almost complete.  These baskets
