Bouncing Around From This to That

 Here's the primitive doll quilt I gave you a sneak peak of a couple of posts ago. I signed up for a swap and this quilt now resides with Dorothy in Australia.
 This was a quilt that Cheri started online. I had vines down the center but really wasn't that thrilled with how mine looked so I took them off, quilted it and called it done. I'd call this one primitive too!
 I took out my Blind man's Fancy blocks and plan on working on them. I had the centers made I just need to finish the blocks. The two on the left are the newest ones. The original quilt has flying geese sashing. I'm sure that will take me some time to do. The blocks are fun and very random as far as colors.
Look what came today. Three quilts from my quilter!! I guess I'll be working on some binding too.

Have a wonderful quilty week!

  1. The quilt you sent Dorothy is beautiful, I bet she loves it. I finally made a dent in my room so I can work in it again.

  2. I saw the doll quilt you made on the recipient's blog. She certainly received a good one.

    I remember those Blind Man's Fancy blocks. How many blocks do you plan on making?

  13. Cute doll quilt - lucky recipient! I like what you did with the black and white blocks - different. Those BMF blocks are so cheerful. Can't wait to see what's in the box!

  14. I'm like you Lori - bouncing from one project to another. I have my Cheri quilt all pieced, but haven't started a bit on the wool applique yet - I want to use red wool, but am afraid the dye might bleed out when I wash it - so I'm procrastinating about it! LOL

    Binding a quilt is one of my very favorite things - hope you enjoy that part too!

  18. Sad But True Story:

    Your first couple posts on your Soot and Ashes progress inspired me to make one, too. I made one in blues and greens on cream and was deliberating over adding vines or not when my dog found it so irresistibly attractive that she stole it off the design wall and ate a fist-sized hole in it! I'm hoping a little maturity will cure her of her need for more fiber in her diet. That and a gate on my sewing room.

    P.S. I love your Blind Man's Fancy blocks.

  19. Okay, I'm going to have to stop reading your blog Lori because I want to make everything you show!
    I just love the little doll quilt you made and the Blind Man's Fancy blocks.

  23. Beautiful patchwork and applique! Lots of fun play there. I like the blind man's fancy blocks--they remind me of the Roll Roll Cotton Boll that Bonnie Hunter was doing.
