The third and final doll quilt...

The third reproduction doll quilt is done!  (see my last post for the first two...)  Mary Jones pieced these little beauties and I got to hand quilt them and give them back to her for binding (to me, that's like getting to play with the baby, then hand it back to mama to change the diaper!).
They are store samples to help sell reproduction fabrics and this great book, out of which all three little quilts came, at one of our LQS.
All of these quilt patterns are so nice and finish up quickly with scraps and a little time.  There is also some interesting historical reading in this book.  Just lovely.

Stay tuned...the chickens are coming in the next post...

Does anyone know a good online source for Moda Bella solids??

In stitches,
Teresa  :o)

  7. All 3 quilts are so charming. I'm sure they will sell lots of reproduction fabric :0)

    My friend made all the quilts from that book and then had a party and gave them away to all her little girl friends. (three of the little girls were my daughters so 3 of the quilts reside at my house - the checker board is one of them)

  8. Another cute little quilt :0)

    Teresa, try using Quiltshops.com, type in Moda Bella Sale and click thumbnail. It brings up around 4 pages of shots of this fabric at various shops. You just have to click on the thumbnail and find the best price. I do this a lot when I know what fabric I want.

Thanks for stopping by the quilt cave...I love your feedback! I am sorry that I am no longer able to accept comments from "Anonymous" readers...it leaves the door open for too many spammers!
