Our neighbor recently gave Mandy and I a tub full of fabrics that she had no need for. She likes to go to auctions and buy fabric. She will see a piece of fabric she likes but you have to buy the whole box of fabric to get just that one piece. So, she gave us all her "extra" fabric. A friend of hers also gave her a baggie full of Christmas colored HST. They measured around 1.5". As I was ironing and sorting them by color I noticed that some were a smidgen smaller than the others. I took the smaller ones and made this little doll quilt. It measures 21" square. All the fabric used was from my neighbor. She has a 3 year old granddaughter and I think this will be perfect for her.
The back is this cute white fabric with red flowers all over it. I quilted the center with white thread and the border with red. This is the first time I used two colors to quilt with. No big deal, just the first time.
The rest of the HSTs were turned into this pinwheel quilt. This one is 31" X 32". No idea why one side is off an inch from the other but it looks fine. This one will also go to the neighbor. I thought maybe her church would like it. They could either raffle it off or donate it to a member who is having a baby.
For the quilting I just did some stitch in the ditch, or at I tried to. I would wobble out of the ditch every once in awhile. This quilt also used all of the neighbor's fabric. The green was just perfect for the back of this quilt.
I received Di's blocks for the SigOrnament swap. They turned out great!
I "borrowed" this pic from her blog just in case she didn't want her name and city plastered all over the web :)
