Box arrived

A box arrived and it was filled with little dolls quilts from the HGTV Message Board gals.  Such treasures!
And there are so many creative ideas to be found in these little quilts made for the Get Your Mrs. Claus On project.  I want to share just a few of them.
   Karibbean Quilter made this cute little strip quilt---very simple and great color choices----and added a single butterfly applique in the corner.  So special and a great idea for later use.
Pinwheels and cows!  This is such a happy little quilt.  Now I know what to do with all the extra pinwheels I have from my last scrap quilt project! The cow fabric makes this one so much fun.  It is from the great state of Nebraska.

From New Mexico.....embroidered blocks of sun bonnet Sue and 9 patch blocks.  These blocks are machine embroidered in a beautiful blue.   A really cute combination.  This Mrs. Claus  used a decorative stitch for the quilting in the border.  Great idea!



  Did I say 9 patch and quilting?  This cheerful yellow 9 patch is hand quilted!  It is so beautiful.  It is from Mrs. Claus from Wyoming.  A little girl is going to love and treasure this one.








 
And the labels.....all labeled with the state that it represents.  Hand written, embroidered, computer printed, printed on ribbon, appliqued, sewn in.....great ideas in this variety of small  quilt labels.




There are a lot more ideas to uncover here.....so I will be sharing those along the way as I get extra  photos taken.  Thank you ladies for your caring sharing hearts and hands and all the creative inspiration you bring to the world of quilting.  Happy stitching.
