Today I am sharing some pictures of the dolls and their quilts that I made for my nieces. I had a ball with these! But realize that I never did get around to making any for the youngest ones, as I type this.
This one belongs to Rosie.
Randi called her doll "Amy". The Wild Goose Chase block is in the same colors and much the same pattern as a real quilt that I have started for her--another UFO, sorry to say.
Amber called her doll "Rachel" Rachel's quilt was a little puff quilt and just big enough for me to try making one. 121 squares was quite enough to convince me that I probably would never make a large version, LOL.
My SIL Jan will have to refresh my faulty memory. I know this is Beth's because it replicates the big quilt that I made for her but did I make her a doll?? I seem to have no pictures of it. Also did I post a picture of her quilt in my "Lost" blog?
I'm passing on the quilt meeting today to stay home and make some more train blocks for Betsy's Christmas quilt. Finn, there will be be a train included just not the same one as the pattern. I did the caboose and side car yesterday with the engine and passenger car on my goals for today. That should complete the top half.
Patti, I understood what you were telling me about partial seams and in fact, that is probably what I was doing. Betsy had left the seams partially finished around the dark blue tree applique. It still didn't make it too easy to manipulate it around a 2 x 3 spacer but we got the job done. I appreciate your help though. I've been looking at the sketch closely to see if we can eliminate it on the lower half but I know I can if I have to.
Catch you later----
