Antique doll quilts and doll beds fascinate me right now. I am also in a group hosted by Barbara Brackman. The group is making/sharing improvisational quilts and scraps that are never too small to save.
Last week I made 2 doll quilts with fabrics C 1900 in pinks, reds, and blues & shirtings. I got this quilt piece on ebay, and I made a strip quilt just like this one. I just started sewing with leftover pieces from other projects and no plan in mind... I will upload a picture of the new quilts that I made soon.

- The first one is in Ottawa, KS. on October 19th at 7 pm. for the Sunflower Piecemaker's Quilt Guild at the Westminster Presbyterian Church, 401 W. 13th St.
- The second one is in Topeka, KS. on November 10th at 7 pm. at the Women's Club. This is for The Kansas Capital Quilter's Guild.
I have antique and new quilts to show, and I really enjoy talking about the quilts. There will also be some patterns/kits available.

and learning to use my Featherweight
machine. It is really fun to sew on!
The diamond log cabin shown represents
the 1880's period. It is
foundation pieced on fabric.
The whig rose quilts are my design. The one on the right is called "Folk Art Roses" and I have a pattern for it.
The one with a pink background is slightly different and I am working on a pattern for that one. The whig rose was popular in the 1840's to 1870's period.
