More Doll quilts

Wow!  I am overwhelmed by the response to the cheddar giveaway and the doll quilt show.  There were so many more responses than I expected - plus Thanksgiving and a few of those unexpected life situations that pop up - that I am way behind in posting the photos that were sent to me and sending out the cheddar fabric.  But, this is my week for getting my act back together.  Today I am posting the photos of the great quilts shared by those who don't have blogs.  I think I got them all but if you sent a photo and don't see it, please let me know.  I am constantly amazed at the creativity of quilters.

Tune back in tomorrow for the winner of the doll quilt giveaway.

Submitted by Beverly:  She is also an antique quilt lover and most of the quilts she makes (and finishes) are doll or wall quilt size.  This quilt is made of leftovers from a guild challenge and almost fits a doll bed her husband bought for her this summer.

Submitted by Louise:  This little red and white quilt is 11-1/2" x 11-1/2" and was inspired by one of the same pattern at Temecula Quilt Company.



The trio of quilts above was submitted by Tammy.

Submitted by Jeanneke: "Lucky in Love" is Jeanneke's (the creator of Little Houses from Scraps) latest little quilt creation.

"Klosjes" submitted by Linda


Judith from Canada submitted the two doll quilts made from reproduction fabrics above.  Like me, she doesn't have access to much repro fabric where she lives so she frequents the same online shops as me.  She likes to play with the fabrics and patterns and see what she comes up with.

Salley is from Australia and this small applique quilt is her own design.  See how she managed to add dimension to her flowers, leaves and border just using solids?

This little quilt made from bright repros was submitted by Kim.

Susan's little basket quilt is from a Kathleen Tracy patterns. I love her colors!

Submitted by Cyndi: a little fall wall hanging.

Dianne calls this one "Brass Buttons."  I am tempted to try this pattern myself because I have lots of little squares just asking to become four patches.

Submitted by Sue B: gorgeous fall colored hexis.  The leaf props in this photo are so pretty I almost can't believe they are real leaves.


Submitted by Mary in Missouri:  the top quilt is a framed mini and the one below is from the Temecula Quilt Co. 12 Days of Christmas mystery pattern.

Submitted by Marca: a little quilt from a Jo Morton pattern.
