Jacy, so cute. This is fun. However, i am tired of trying to come up with all these blocks for the crazy doll quilt. Might put it aside and do another for now. I found an old mag I have from 1998. Miniature Quilts. Has some great patterns in it.

Hi Judy,

Your doll quilts are both so cute!  I admire the hexagons that you did by hand.  I haven't even aspired to try that yet.  LOL  Nicely done! :-)

Jacy, I love your doll quilt.  I can't wait until I can work on mine.  I think I am going to hand piece and hand quilt mine.

I finished the top for my second doll quilt top. It's the Hexagon Flowers doll quilt on the right.

Judy, your hexagon flowers turned out so cute. They look really great especially considering how tiny those hexagons were, You did GOOD!!!!!!!

Hello Everyone

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  We had a quiet dinner at my sister-in-law's house.  Hubby was able to enjoy a little of it, but not pain free.

We will find out on Wednesday the results of the biopsies they took last Friday.  

Because of all of this, have not spent hardly anytime at my sewing machine.  Have been making some Red Work Angel blocks since they are hand sewn.  Not sure what I will do with them, but have been using the "twilling" stitch and have actually been using red crochet #10 thread.  I will post a picture of it later.

Since I figure I will be spending more time in the family room with my hubby, decided also to give the hexagon flower quilt a try.  I just printed out a  grid sheet of patterns so I can try the English Paper Piecing method.  I have never done that, so figure now is a good time to learn since it will be so portable to take to where ever I am sitting.

Hope everyone has a great holiday season and I will continue to check in periodically to let you know I am still here.  By the way, the doll quilts you have all made are so pretty.  These have inspired me to make one for each of my granddaughters.

Hi Barbara

Well, I just googled twilling and found an online video of how to do it.  I didn't have any shanks of thread like what you purchased for yours, so I just took a ball of my red crochet thread and I traced onto my material one of Fons and Porters Country Angels that they have in one of their books for applique, and well, here she is.

So this is my first try at it.  My stitches still need some work, but the more I do, the more even they become.
