Hooray! I have finished my repro swap nine patch top. I measures about 52 x 72 and contains exactly 100 nine patches.
I have received two lovely dolly quilts from readers and wanted to share them. I am always so surprised and delighted when a reader is so generous!
First this came from Rondi, who was in the nine patch swap. I love the red binding.
I received this one from Barbara, a guild friend and blogger from NJ. Click here for her blog of wonderful quilts and interesting history. The floral border and pinking top binding are great antique touches.
Thank you both so much. I'll treasure these doll quilts. They even inspired me to have a dolly tea party.
My doll, Annie, invited Hanna's doll (from the basement) to a tea party and quilt show and tell. First she showed her Barbara's wonderful quilt.
After lunch, she showed her Rondi's lovely quilt. (She must live in a studio, given the proximity of the bed to the table).
Then I heard them discussing how I am currently storing the doll quilts. "Now that is just sad!"... "A two foot pile in the corner of a closet"..."what a shame."
In the late afternoon, they had a little "nip" and talked about all matter of things.
It might have gotten a little crazy.......oh dear.
Stay warm! Looks like most of us are in for cold weather and even snow!
