All About Diane

A couple of days ago my good friend, Diane, featured some of the doll quilts I've made for her over the years on her blog; Persnickety.

Today, it's Diane's turn here. This one I received this year and did a post about here. I decided to machine quilt it with red thread and bind it with mottled black single binding.

Here is one I received for my birthday last year. They are like little sister quilts with similar coloring. The backings are cute too.

These are such cheerful and fun little quilts - I just treasure them - thanks, Diane! (and anyone else who helped with them ;)

This is a birthday post card that I received - isn't it adorable?
Love the cake lady!

This is one of my favorite little quilts. It features sweet little picture shirtings. I hand quilted this one and it hangs permanently in the sewing room.

This is a sweet little pincushion (but I use it as a little pillow on a wicker doll chair) that Diane made me several years ago - So lovely.

I love the honey pot backing fabric -

Note to Diane - I know there are a few more pieces that you have made me, but darned if I could lay my hands on them at the moment. They may be packed up with holiday appropriate decorations -
You can see the most recent Christmas doll quilt from Diane in a post here.
