Sitting at My Table....

It has been awhile since I have done any quilting. Bell's quilt for her birthday was the last time I sat down to do any quilting and after doing her quilt while we were away for our Anniversary, I have had a strong desire to get back to quilting a bit more. So many ideas to work out and such beautiful prints to combine. So, this past week I have stolen away little bits of time to get these quilt tops quilted. They are all smaller baby and toddler sized quilt tops making them manageable in small windows of time.

This first one is a combination of modern and vintage linens along with some beautiful modern quilting fabrics. The center floral panel was taken from a pillow sham I found while in Door County for our Anniversary. I was so taken with how well the new and old came together! And of course the dots add some fun.

The second is made completely from vintage bed linens. I just had to showcase the floral print with some retro stripes. The fabric speaks for itself!

And the third is similar to some I have done in the past. It uses some of my favorite happy bright scraps taken from clothing, linens, and vintage fabrics. I used a lemon striped bed linen for the longer strips.

Just need to bind all of these fun quilts now.

I have also finished this past weekend, a boy doll for Noah, which he has been asking for ever since Bell got her "Elizabeth" on Valentines Day. Joslyn has also been requesting a doll for just as long, so I have now done one for her as well. Both of them just make me giggle and seem to have a personality all their own. Looking forward to surprising them!


  1. You've been busy! Especially love the dolls and the quilt made from the vintage sheets. Very nice work!

  2. Sweet dolls! Love the quilts, too!
