Three doll quilts

Here are the last of the quilts that were falling off the chair. All are made from Celebrate Spring fabric line by Sandy Gervais for Moda.

This one is mine.

This one is, obviously Amy's.

This is Ruby's, Amy's birthsister.

Amy took a picture of all of them together. She would have rather had a line hung between two trees outside, but this worked. She's such a great daughter. :)

Yesterday I started (meaning laid the pattern out and cut the fabric) a smock made from a vintage pattern. There are a couple directions I don't get, but maybe if I get to working on it, it'll become clearer. I'm hoping for that, actually, I'm praying for that.

I also cut out the pieces for the next quilt. I'm using a pattern found in this book. Here is a picture of one. I'm excited about doing it. Then I'm starting on a quilt for my bed. (I told dh that one was next, but I'm getting a bit sidetracked.)

I've been inspired by Amanda Jean to have a stash of quilts. The reason being I'd like to be able to give them to people who need them. The giving idea came from my blogging friend, Cheri, whom I really hope to meet in person someday. :)

Love the quilting on the doll quilts.

And, i just picked up a copy of Material Obsession at the library. I think I'll read it on the plane.

If you ever get the itch, you can make quilts for the little beds in the Detsky Dom's (Children's Homes) in certain countries. ;-)

Quilts for orphans...a great idea.
