Mrs. Claus has been stitching!

Packages have been arriving quite regularly......and most have a very special name in the return address area.  I wonder what the postal delivery person thinks when they drop off all these soft packages from
 "Mrs. Claus"?

  From Mrs. Claus in Minnesota comes the cutest kitten print and 9 patches.  Simply tied with pink yarn, it is just so sweet.   This was made by Lois of the HGTV Message Board.

  An added benefit of organizing this project....the cards that often accompany the doll quilts.  Such is the case this time from Lois.  A vintage pattern note card and pattern piece envelope were tucked in with the doll quilt.  Can I just it!  

I began to sew when I was about 10 years old, and I remember patterns from this era.  Thanks, Lois, for this added touch.

  Kelli, aka Sprmom on the HGTV Message Board, made 2 doll quilts to represent West Virginia.  I think of these two as Cinderella Dreams.  I know 2 little girls will enjoy these pretty ones featuring our favorite princess.

   Two doll quilts to represent the states of Colorado and Alaska were sent by Mrs. Claus of CA, aka Nancyc20 at the HGTV Message Board.   I remember that this Mrs. Claus made several last year, too.  I love pinwheels and both are really cute.  Thank you.

  Aliquilt, Mrs. Claus in Ohio, sent a triple play of cute ones.....a bright and bold scrap quilt, a 9 patch of red and butter gold, and a panel print of Noah's Ark. A really great variety and all so cute.

  There are a pair of Mrs. Claus sisters that live in Maryland.

   Patricia  Anne sent these 2 beauties in blue and yellow.  The colors are so beautiful!  She is representing the states of Delaware and Maryland.

  And Mrs. Claus of Maryland is Angela from the HGTV Message Board.  A bright zig-zag, and a beautiful blue 9 patch came from her.

  I know these two sisters had a great time making the doll quilts.

 The last package to arrive yesterday was from Mrs. Claus in Texas.   But by now we all know who she is......from Nicki of the HGTV Message Board. She is one terrific organizer and help! And I can see she even found time to make a trio of doll quilts, too.....  scrappy  4 patches, squares of pinks and brown, and a cute rail fence doll quilt.  Thank you, Mrs. Claus, this project has grown because of your involvement.

What a great assortment of doll quilts!  Nothing says love like a little fabric and thread.

Big hugs and thanks to all the participating Mrs. Claus.

Great quilt show. Is it too late to join in? I had pulled fabric a while ago, but haven't put it all together yet.

Nicki said...
