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.
Thanks Nicki! Yes, they are hedgehogs. I think they're cute too.
I'd love to contribute. I'm from NJ.
Turtle9 thank you for being a part here. I've got you down for New Jersey.
I finished NH and it will be in the mail soon.
I will post a pic later.
Can't wait to see the pic. Don't forget to let Debbie know you are from this board. Thanks for your help!
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.

Nicki-I'll sign up for Arkansas with Rainbow and I will also do Tennessee cause I lived in Memphis for 10years.
I can't wait to do these again!
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.
I noticed that too since it is one of my states. It was fine before.
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 panelThis message has been edited. Last edited by: mcpatches,
Next, we have quilts made from leader/endings/trimmed triangles
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.
i would like to represent massachusetts as well.
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.This message has been edited. Last edited by: mcpatches,
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!This message has been edited. Last edited by: nlk,
Well I live in Texas, grew up in Arizona, but have a favorite cousin that lives in North Carolina....
We have a winner! Sign me up for N Carolina.
First time participating in this. Looking forward to it.
Welcome Cookie Quilts... 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.
Thank you, Nicki. I got the pm and am looking forward to participating.
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...
What a sweet little quilt show! Thanks so much for sharing photos. These will make so many little girls happy as they play with their dolls.
Could someone pm with the address to send the little quilts? Can't seem to find it anywhere in my notes. Thanks
Lovely little quilts ladies. McPatches you have certainly been a busy beaver and a great rep. for Ohio.
So I think I want to do this and you can sign me up for my home state of PA.
3grandkids I sent you a p.m. with the address.
Yay Mary....glad you climbed on the band wagon for the fun ride. This is such a sweet project.
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?
I'm pretty sure that is fine.
McPatches - those are wonderful!
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.
I mailed today. happy girl here!!
Nicki, please sign me up for Montana. I'll PM you for the mailing address.
Thanks Bozie...you're now officially signed up for Montana. I'll p.m. you the address.
Here's my quilt.......
bozie, are those real buttons?
No,they are fussy cut from this fabric.
Bozie, that's a really, really cute quilt. I love the fabric & colors. Thanks!!!
ohhhhh! it looked like metal buttons.
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
McP, those quilts are beautiful! Ohio is beautifully represented
Oh, thank you Aliquilt! How about I put you down for DC since you have visited there in the past? Thanks for joining the group. I'll go ahead & p.m. you with the mailing address since your computer access is limited. Thanks again for signing up.
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.
Nicki, I will make one to represent South Dakota, next door neighbor to my state of MN. And a very friendly place to visit. Jackie
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.
What a sweet little quilt, Bozie!
Over the weekend I made two little quilts
and this one
Shirlwin, both of those little quilts are precious. Thanks so much for representing Australia with those.
Shirlwin, your quilts are beautiful.
