I am a 40 something year old mother of 2. I have always been interested in crafts since my sister and I spent summer weeks with my Grandmother, who was a very crafty lady, while my mother was in college. I mostly quilt since I seem to have an obsession with owning large quantities of fabric, but at one point or another think I have tried almost every craft out there.

doll quilts in my future

I've decided I really like doll sized quilts. They go together so fast. It's all ready to be marked, sandwiched and quilted. Anyone have any ideas for a quilting motif to put in the setting squares?
I think I got my quilting mojo back. :-D All week long I was so anxious to get home from work and sew. The only problem is I want to work on new projects instead of finishing up what I have half done. I think that maybe I should finish putting together that HAD leaf quilt. I only have about 5 squares left to assemble and then I can finish the top. It won't take me long once I get going. I think that will be my goal for this week. Wish me luck.

I love the doll quilt - can't wait to see if finished.

Good luck finishing up your QFAH top. I'm working on July's and hope to get mine to the finished top stage within a couple weeks.

I want to make some small ones, but just haven't had a chance. Once I get some UFO's done I want to do a few doll sized ones for my living room wall. I like the one you've done!

This is a sweet quilt and perfect for a wall hanging. Looking forward to see it all done. Will you put on a border or leave it as is?

Making these little quilts is so much fun. I love the antique feel of your little quilt with the gold background squares.

I love the doll quilt - especially the fabric you selected for the setting squares. I agree that the little ones may be the way to go - you get to make lots of patterns that way - even though they aren't as useful when they are finished.

I too have trouble continuing to work on the already started quilts. There is just so much quilty inspiration that makes you want to do something new.

I think you should be able to put together some of the HAD quilt - just intersperce it between the quilts you want to work on, or let the quilts you want to work on be the reward for working on the HAD quilt.

Love your little doll quilt! How about some Baptist fan quilting in it? That's my favorite design right now.

Wow, what a great little quilt. I really love the gold/yellow fabric. It makes everything blend together beautifully.

What a marvelous little doll quilt. Very antique looking, which I adore in a doll quilt. I'd quilt it in keeping with the antique look. Maybe Baptist Fans? Or a simple crosshatch created by stitching in the ditch on the pieced blocks and just carrying straight through the plain blocks. The gold color of the alternate squares is perfect.

Beautiful quilt! I know how tempting it is to start new projects before the old ones are done. You just get so excited about a new idea and want to get started on it. Good luck!

I love the doll quilts too. It allows us to make more quilts, just smaller! But now what to do with such a big stash? :p
