Bernie's quilt drive and linky party. She's encouraging quilters to make a doll quilt to go with Amy's dolls. Amy makes dolls that look like the recipient. It is so therapeutic for them.
Mine is 26 inches square. I made it with 4 nine patches of 5" squares from scraps in my novelty leftovers. Then I used the disappearing nine patch trick. I'm going to try to quilt it this weekend and send it off early next week. The quilt is matched with an 18" doll.
Earlier this week, I sandwiched a quilt for St. Anne's. Here it is on my kitchen table being pinned. I use an old corrugated cardboard cutting mat and I pin my back right into the space between the two pieces of cardboard. The two clamps you see are to keep the mat from folding onto itself. Once that is pinned (taut but not tight) I lay on the batting and top, then pin all three together. This saves my back as I can't get down on the floor or carpet any more.
Finish it Up Friday, Finished or Not Friday, and Can I get a Whoop, Whoop? Lots to inspire there.
Have plans for quilting this long weekend? Come by and link what you're working on. We'd love to see it. Last week's giveaway winner is Lee Anna at Not Afraid of Color. I've sent her an email. She's getting a fat quarter once I know what color she'd like. Want a fat quarter? Link up to this week's party for an opportunity to do so. Ends Thursday, midnight. Linky below.
