Little quilts

  Time for the weekly update on those doll quilts.
I was so excited when I opened the package from Mrs. Claus in Maine.   She included custom made pillows for her doll quilts!

 Both of these were made by KC1930 who is a member of the HGTV Message Board.  The quilts are adorable, but those little pillows just add that special touch of love.  Thank you so much, Kathleen, for being a wonderful Mrs. Claus.

  If I asked you to guess which state these little ones represented, what would you say?  Cows....I loved these cows!  So this Mrs. Claus is from that great dairy state of Wisconsin!  Cute, colorful, and cuddly.
   Both are made of flannel by Patty J, who is also a member of the HGTV Message Board.  She included a note about getting a stroller for her baby doll when she was young.  So Mrs. Claus just wanted to pass along that happiness to a little girl.

   From the fabrics we select, to the memories we stitch into a quilt, as quilters we strive to preserve things about our lives.  I believe that makes us very special people.  So thank you to each Mrs. Claus.

On a personal stack is dwindling!  I have two of the three assembled for finishing done.  I hope to get to the the last one tomorrow.  So next week/ next month I can begin the scrappy strata quilt.   By Tuesday, I will be organizing those strips.  Please come back and join me.
  Today, Sir Old Man and I are heading to a local quilt show and then to dinner.  We are "celebrating" 39 years together....giggle and grin.  Who would have thought!

Happy stitching.

What darling quilts and what a nice idea to have matching pillows! And those cows are just too cute!

Happy anniversary to you and your DH! Have a great day!

Sweet little pillow/quilt combos. And those are awfully cute cows.
Congrats on your progress and especially on your anniversary. I giggled at what you are doing to celebrate. Our anniversary often coincides with a shop hop and we have spent several anniversaries shop hopping and then DH chooses where we eat. : )

Cute little quilts... I still have one started, but there are 4 bigger ones in first place. (Why do I do this to myself?)
Congrats on your 39 together.

What sweet little quilts. I'm posting this on my iPad. Let's see if it works!

Congratulations! We'll be 38 years this year, really how does this happen? LOL. I hope you have a wonderful day together.
What a cute idea to add those pillows, it's a good way to use those left over batting strips too.

Those quilts are so cute & I love the pillow addition that Kathleen included. Those contented cows from Wisconsin are happy & will make a little girl smile with joy when she gets it.
Congrats on your 39th anniversary! We keep our anniversaries simple...sometimes just staying at home. :)
