Starting


Posted on June 29th, by Amy in Doll Quilt Swap. 13 comments

I have a to do list, including a throw quilt, twin quilt and doll quilt…the trouble seems to be starting! (I have all the fabric, I’ve been focused on the quilt-along so far)  So today I’m going to start on the doll quilt :)  I had been thinking new york beauties, but I’m chickening out – I’m going to make some dresden plated with these Happy fabrics!

Keep me accountable – okay!?  I need to share some progress here really soon, so I can work on the rest of the list.
Blessings,
Amy

  1. Don't be afraid of the New York Beauty. Yes, they take time, but they aren't hard at all! Hmm, I haven't made one in a long time.

  2. Don't be afraid of the New York Beauty. Yes, they take time, but they aren't hard at all! Hmm, I haven't made one in a long time.

  3. You are right on…..New York beauties are NOT for doll quilts… something simple and let the fabric do the work…. it is going to be loved by some doll and her mommy….

  4. I will show you mine if you show me yours…lol…I have a to do list as well, which doesnt get worked on because i am afraid if i change the thread in my machine to something other then red you might post some new blocks!…lol…this morning, i changed it to blue, so that I can work on my pin cushion this afternoon.

    So Amy, I will show you my progress this afternoon/evening, if you show me yours!

  5. I always have trouble starting projects too… then halfway through I wonder what the fuss was all about hehe Can't wait to see your doll quilt with the Happy fabrics! :)

  6. Here, I'll second Cheryl in saying, "Don't be afraid of New York Beauties!" They're not nearly as hard as they look, and they're so worth the effort.

    Nevertheless, I'm sure those adorably happy prints will look awesome in Dresden Plates (a favorite of mine).
