Doll Quilts part 2

The problem with yesterdays doll quilt was I was lazy ,gasp-it's true.
I wanted the blocks to be broken dishes but by adding a single row of hsts it looks like pinwheels. Pretty but not what I wanted :( . That one is going to my niece- she won't care.

I have 3 more done in broken dishes just needing borders. I found more fabric I cut for the original quilt that I will make some more hsts. I''m also working on the 7th of 11 color combos for the Girl Scout quilts. Woo! Hoo!! Snoopy dancing here. I so want to start piecing the blocks soon. Very soon. And again the color is yardage left over from the gmfg I did last year.

See the pretty pale green used in the stars- I have LOTS. So I'm using that for the second green VBG

This doll quilts along with the dolls from the Salvation is a great project. The local Girl Scout service unit is going to be dressing bears also. Sounds like a trip to Build A Bear for my troop.

Oh I just got a mail delivery!!! From Connecting Threads! Yippee! I've been waiting for the neutral thread set for a couple of weeks but now it's here! I also got Brandy's 2" hexagon pieces. Like I didn't have enough fun with them last year.

Well I need to get some sewing done here this morning as I have yet another meeting tonight- no rest for the wicked as hubby says -lol
Have a great sewing day everyone and I'll read blogs tonight

I hope you'll show this one to Linda. It's such a pretty pattern and could be made with Inklingo 3 now. :-)
