Oh that little doll quilt is so very, very cute. Are those hedgehogs? I LOVE hedgehogs! Some little girl is going to really like that. Your quilting is fantastic! Thanks so much for making it & being a part of the project.

Go ahead and put me down for New Mexico and Nebraska too. My dad was born there (NM) and grew up in Nebraska. Easy peasy for me to do 4.

I just checked in on this thread & notice that LA is sort of "bleeped" out with some *****. Does anyone know what that's all about? I've tried to fix it but nothing works when I try to spell out the state. Sometimes I wonder about admin. Frown

Guess I should have asked permission first, but here's a little quilt show of what I've finished since September. These little quilts are so easy and fun to make! And not all of my quilts hit the measurement requirements perfectly - I think last year I read they can be a little off - up to one inch or so.

First, the easiest ones are whole cloth or those made from a panel

These three started out as a panel with instructions to make a doll quilt and pillow and had another bunny image on the panel. A little extra fabric from stash to make borders, and three bunny quilts

Now we have some made from some Christmas panels. The hearts and gingerbread men were cut out and window fused then stitched around as part of the quilting.

These were made from excess sashing (garden maze) and unused blocks (warm wishes + fused shaped from Jayardi) and two orphaned blocks

These are made from scraps from 3 Quilts for Kids quilts made late last year - the top two from one quilt and the bottom 3 from two flannel quilts

these are three quilts I finished this month while working on Will Quilt for Chocolate's UFO challenge. They started out as 6 blocks from a bright block lottery I won. The bottom one is 4 blocks re-arranged and the last two were done in purple and white and red and white and I added some to them. Didn't think they'd fit into the quilt I was making from the other blocks because they were all different colors in one block, not monochromatic.

And I think this is the last - rejected 6" blocks from Sylvia's bridal sampler and classes at the retreats. I think my batik sashing is too busy and overwhelms the blocks.

Oh McPatches, what a beautiful show of doll quilts. What a sweetie you are to make so many for the children. They will be thrilled to get one of these. I can't see your last quilt...the one from the rejected 6" blocks from Sylvia's bridal sampler & classes. It just shows a red X where the picture should be. Some of my sizes are not exact either but I know that they have beds & strollers & I know that they can use all we send.

Mandy, I've got you signed up for Massachusetts. Thanks!

Welcome Cookie Quilts...Wave Thanks for being a part of this group for 2014. These are fun little quilts to make & it's a good way to use up some of your scrap pieces & learn some new techniques. Don't forget to post a pic before you send your quilt off to Debbie. I can p.m. you with her address.

I'm just finishing a doll quilt for my DGD, and it's been such fun! I thought I need to make more of these...

I've been thinking about signing up for this and doing a bit of designing.

In the blog Debbie says ...."Recommended size for the doll quilts is 14" by 18". A little bigger or smaller is fine..." I'm wondering how much is "a little"? Is 14" x 17" OK? Smile

Oh Bozie it would be an honor to have you join us with this project. 14" x 17" would be just fine. I've even made some that are smaller than her 12" x 18" size but I know they went to a thankful child. They use the quilts for beds, cradles & strollers. Let me know if you want to sign up for a particular state or just want to make a little quilt with no state in mind. I have Debbie's address if you decide to join us.

With my limited internet I missed the original posting. I see Ohio is very adequately represented. Hawaii is also covered (born there). I have visited DC and would like to visit those other states so if you would like to have me adopt one of remander states I'd be happy to take care of one. Alison

Do u use quilt batting in the doll quilts?

I use it in mine. Sometimes I use cotton & sometimes polyester. I don't think you would have to use it if you don't want to. You could just have a front & back with no batting inside. There are not rules (except for the sizes). You can make them tied, quilted, bound, unbound, etc.

I use batting because it makes the quilting show better,but don't think you would have to.You could also just use another piece of fabric.
