With a Little Help from my Friends

Lucky us! Kathie, of Inspired by Antique Quilts was on hand to take photos of the little quilts.

Here is a nice little group. Beth made the "packages" from the card trick block. The Molly quilt I made for my daughter's American Girl Doll. It also matches a full size twin quilt that I made her. The R&W chain was a gift from my friend, Mary C. in Illinois.

This is Beth's fireplace scene. Isn't it great? She pointed out that it was constructed log cabin style - so clever! The fabric really looks like marble and brick. I also love the "monet-esque" painting.

This is a "big girl" doll quilt I made Hanna 2 years ago, when she was 14. She loves all things Asian.
A close up on the quilting

This is one of Hanna's from 2003. I have been making them for her for many, many years. I'm not sure when I started and one year I made a red work pillow instead. This one has dogs on the back - she was all about the dogs and cats.

My friend, Sheila, made this for Hanna when she was obsessed with 101 dalmations. On the back is the cutest flannel dalmatian fabric.

I'll share more of my Christmas doll quilts over the next couple of weeks.

Hope those who celebrate are enjoying shopping, decorating and finding time to sit back with a glass of wine during this busy, rushy season.


  1. All good little quilts. The card trick packages is very creative!

  2. I really enjoyed seeing all the doll quilts. I think its a great idea to make a new one every year! The ornament quilt is wonderful love the way it is quilted.
    I agree loved Beth's fireplace scene.
    OH Sheila's little quilt inspired me last night.

  3. The little quilts are wonderful, gosh such detail in the fireplace one and the packages are wonderful. I also loved the simplicity of your ornament one.


  4. I love doll quilts and these are no exception!

  5. I just adore these little sweet tidbits! Thanks!!

  6. What wonderful quilts and great to see the one with the fireplace and the ornaments. I'm loving the red and wghite chain quilt. I'd love to do one like that next year.

  7. Wow...lots of wonderful 'quilty'

  8. I think I ought to make some doll's quilts - much easier to store than the bed varieties!
