Quilting Bee

I am so excited!!!!!!

My friend at Blissitydoodah blog is hosting a doll (mini) quilt activity. You can make a quilt or show one you have. This is going to be so much fun!!!

It brings back the memories of the days I spent sitting on our front porch cutting out quilt blocks with my Grandmother. We would use newspaper and pieces of thin cardboard to make our patterns out of.

Of course I will be hand sewing mine as I did with my Grandmother. I cannot wait to get started.
Won't you get your scraps out, start cutting, join us in this adventure.

Hi Mary,
I'm not a quilter. Sounds fun and I can't wait to see yours! I can just see you on your porch, quilting away!

Oh this is going to be so much fun for you. I've only made one doll quilt in my life...a crazy patchwork quilt. Hmmmm....I'll think about it!

Hello Dear Mary,

This sounds like fun! Of all the crafting I have done, I have never quilted. I have always promised myself I would learn do so, and just like your dear grandmother mine too made beautiful patchwork quilts and sewed them all by hand. Cannot wait to see all the quilts ahead:o)



see you there! said...

I'll bet Phyllis is going to have quite a wonderful collection to show us. So many are participating.
