2013 Doll Quilt Sign Ups here - ADDED INFO FOR YOUR QUILT
I was born in North Dakota, so I'll be happy to send a quilt to represent that state. Smile

SeeingStars, I've added your name to North Dakoata & am happy that you have joined us here.

KarribbeanQuilter, Debbie posted your darling quilts today & she is so proud to have them in the group. Thank you so much & they are so cute.

Malou, your little quilts were posted today also. What beautiful doll quilts you produced for 2013. That little duck just puts an immediate smile on my face. Thank you very, very much!

Here they are for all to see:

Nicki, though I'd like to take credit for those two wonderful quilts from a Mrs. Claus representing Virginia... it wasn't me!
Has to be someone else that did those. I love that duck!
I live in OH but chose VA because a sister lives there and we hope to relocate there one day and there OH had been taken.
I plan on working on my quilts after Thanksgiving.

HA!, that is too funny Malou. O.K., I'll wait until another time to see yours posted on her blog. I did notice that she didn't say the quilter was from the HGTV Quilting Board & she generally gives credit to our board. Wave I just went back & took the smiley face off your name. Frown

Oh May, that's a lovely little quilt. I like that you made it from your scrap bin. Your FM quilting is GREAT on it. Thanks so much for your help with this cause.

Thanks Nicki...I should have practiced on a scrap before I did that little quilt and I would have liked it better.

Hi Nik: now that Christmas is over, I will be starting other projects including the doll quilts I signed up for. I just wanted to know if you have anyone signed up for Rhode Island. If not, I will take that state as well so all of New England is covered.

Thanks

Cute quilts sent in already!

I hope to gt to mine soon. They just take a little while since they are so small.

Working on a Quilt of Valor right now. TC May, I really like your BWB one.

Oh Catwmn27, that's sweet of you to take on another state. I've got you signed up for The Ocean State Rhode Island). Thank you soooo much. I need to get started on making a few more now that Christmas is over & my sewing projects are completed.

There are 7 states left that have not been spoken for. Don't forget that in 2013 we can have more than one sign up for a state. So if you see a state that's already got a name by it I will be MORE THAN HAPPY to put your name next to it also.

I know it's early for 2013 but I had quite a lot of interest in the "Get Your Mrs Claus On" project already. Here's the link that lets you know how this project started & what it's all about (it's all about the children!)

http://stitchintherapy.blogspo...laus-on-project.html

A wonderful group of woodworkers in South Carolina have been making wooden toys, doll beds, strollers, etc. for needy children at Christmas time & they approached Debbie & said the doll beds needed little "blankets"...thus began the "Get Your Mrs Claus On Project". In 2012 our board was represented by gifting the children with over 126 doll quilts (representing each state in the USA). For 2013 I'm not limiting a state to only one person so if you want a state that has already been spoken for I will add you to that state. Also I'm bringing in any countries all over the world that you might want to represent. The little quilts will be mailed directly to Debbie in 2013 & I can supply you with her address. All I ask is that you let her know that you are from the HGTV Quilting Board so she will know where they are coming from and that you get them to her NO LATER than September 1, 2013. This will allow her to make plans to get any additional quilts made that she will need before the Christmas deadline. At this time I do not know how many the woodworkers will need for 2013.

She needs 2 sizes --- 12" x 18" for the cradles & 14" x 18" for the doll beds. You can pick which ever size you want to make...you can make more than one quilt if you are so inclined. The little quilts can be a whole piece of fabric, a pieced quilt, machine made, hand made, free motion quilted, stitch in ditch quilted, tied....any way you want to make them.

****ADDED INFO HERE***** Debbie sent me an e-mail about how truly excited she was that our board is making these quilts again for 2013. She has added a request or two for us:
~~~quote~~~
When they send the doll quilts, have them include a note with name, screen name and email---so I can let them know of arrival and send thank yous. Signing on the back of the quilts with the state or country too was a surprise that worked out great. The lady at Pendleton House was awestruck when she saw states like California, and Michigan on the back of them."~~~

The quilt does not have to have an official label but just a little note on the back like "Made from ______ with love". This can be done with pigma pens that don't wash out. Thanks!

SINCE I WON'T BE COLLECTING THE QUILTS FIRST, PLEASE TAKE A PICTURE OF YOUR LITTLE QUILT & POST IT SO WE CAN SEE & ENJOY IT. EVERYONE LOVES SEEING WHAT WE ARE DOING.

City/Sandie was soooo enthusiastic about this last year, I thought I'd join in this time around. Since all my favorite states are taken, how 'bout I take Utah, it's only a stone's throw away from where I live anyway.

Kin I make one for Alaska, also? The state of my heart.

Don't see a spot for District of Columbia on the list; are we leaving them out? Puerto Rico isn't there either. That'd be a good one for City/Sandie and her bright, bright colors.

Hmm..new to the site and the states I could claim allegiance to are CA, OR, and OK but you have folks there. Didn't check for Hawaii or Ohio. I would love to do a child's quilt as I have a great stash of fabric.

Sue Stitches...There is no limit on how many people make quilts for each state...the Goal is to have all states represented. The more the merrier for the kids. So pick a couple states and start your stitching, we'd love to have you.

Very new to the site but every day I find new ways to participate with all of you in fun or thoughtful ways. This sounds like a great project for a great cause. I'd like to participate if it is not too late. I could represent Missouri, Arizona , Alaska or all 3 (grew up in Mo, currently live in AZ will retire to AK). Will send PM with my info

WQFC, thanks so much for bumping this up to the top. I was going to do it last week-end & things got in the way.

I've updated the list on page 1 & added the most recent volunteers.

City/Sandie....yes, of course you signed up early & was going to wait until later to pick a state but now I have you down for Puerto Rico. Wink

Paus...I've got you down for Utah & Alaska & thanks!

KaylaQuilts....You have been assigned Missouri, Alaska & Arizona. Be careful..just mentioning a state will get you on the list...hehehe! Thanks so much for joining us on this. You can go to the link I posted on my initial post on page 1 and see what this project is all about.

SueStitches...welcome & thanks for the offer to make a quilt. Do you want to pick a state or would you like for me to assign one to you? You can pick a state that has already been selected. My thought behind the states was that our board would contribute at least 50 quilts for the project...in 2012 this board provided 126 little doll quilts.

OMG...well...ya know what...a certain silly redhead needs to finish unpacking a couple of suitcases containing fabric from her recent trip back to KY, because I have 2 doll quilts in there, I am surely a nut and was way to busy while I was on holiday, brought them to mail to save money on postage only to bring them back again...now if that don't take the cake! Will send them when I find them Nicki...sometimes I need a sticky note stuck to my forehead so that everytime I look in the mirror I am reminded of what I need to do!
