I gave my daughters my best best quilts. You know the ones you just can't get rid of.
My husband was a little upset that I would give them such a gift.
The way I looked at it they were just getting ruined folded up at my house and the girls had places they could hang them - they were going to end up with them one day anyway. I have put them on the blog before but it has been awhile.
My youngest finally got hers hung and they look so much better hanging up.
I made this one for the $100,000 quilt contest and it made it into the semi finals.
It is hand quilted. From start to finish it took 4 months.
I hand embroidered these dolls 32 years ago - it took 9 months.
Dolls of Nations Quilt Pattern
My daughter has put a claim on it a long time ago.
I had it losely quilted except for the binding but never would finish it. So when I got my quilting machine I took the quilting out and did it on the machine. I probably should have waited until I was a little better with the machine but it gave me some practice.
I had found this patter in a magazine and fell in love with it.
I believe the cost was under $5.
After I finished all the dolls I started a flower of the month pattern for my oldest daughter and you'll never guess where that one is -- my oldest UFO. How sad.
