More Finishes

Here is a scrappy little doll quilt a friend sent me a photo of some time ago. I've kept it for inspiration.





Here's my version using a reject Salinda Rupp block as the center. I was able to finish the borders this past week! It measures 23" square.



I was able to get the binding sewn down on this one too! Woo-hoo!

  2. Gorgeous! It's amazing how that pink color can immediately make a quilt look "antique"!
    I found your blog a few weeks ago and am enjoying it immensely! For the past few years I have been quilting with more trendy fabrics and I have just recently caught the "quilting with the oldies" bug.
    Thanks for the time and effort you put into your blog!

  4. Your version of the small quilt is a good one. And good to use a block you already had to put in the center.
    I like the crazy patch star you did also. I have been thinking about doing something along that line with a big bag of small pieces that I have. I just can't part with the bag of little scraps but they aren't very useful for anything else.
