Doll Quilt Time

Once again, it's doll quilt time.  The packages/boxes are rolling in as September quickly nears.  In September, the toy maker elves begin sorting and organizing their deliveries of toys, including the doll quilts.  I sometimes think I have run out of descriptive words and words of praise for these darling quilts.... so bear with me.

Did I say bear?  Yep,  bears!  Dancing bears on purple.....just adorable.  Rainbow is a member of the HGTV Message Board and she is Mrs. Claus in Arkansas.    Rainbow included her state on the label on the back. 
From Wiley also of the HGTV Message Board comes three doll quilts.  This year Wiley chose to represent South Carolina, Delaware, and Rhode Island.
Thank you, Wiley, for being a faithful participant and Mrs. Claus.

Mrs. Claus of Texas sent 3 bright quilts this year.  Jill, aka Will Quilt for Chocolate, is a member of the HGTV Message Board, too.  She is in the middle of moving and still found time to add these to our collection this year.  I love the bright modern fabrics she used.

Mary Ann, aka Handie Ann, is Mrs. Claus of Washington. She sent a box full of cute quilts.  This group includes a small braid it! She also  used decorative stitching for the quilting.....great idea.

  And 3 more from Handie Ann....a disappearing 9 patch, and that beautiful star pattern in green!  So perfectly tiny and delightful.
Thank you, Mrs. Claus, Mary Ann.

From Mrs. Claus of California, Sue, comes 4 little quilts.  Tractors and farm animals.....lots of fun to view.   But sometimes, Mrs. Claus has a little trick up her always, always need to check the back of each quilt.  

  When I was taking photos, I was gathering these up, and felt something on the back.  A quick peek, and I knew I needed another photo.   Sue added a little hexagon for a label on the back and.....a small lady bug embellishment.  Imagine the delight in a little girl's eye when she makes this discovery.   Very cute!

From Mrs. Claus in Michigan comes 2 very sweet little quilts.  TCMay is a member of the HGTV Message Board, too.  The rail fence quilt uses reproduction fabrics bound with dancing tea cup fabric.  And the HST quilt is bordered with bugs on lime green fabric.

  There are always interesting things to find on each little quilt, from the fabric, to the pattern, to the quilting, to the back.  Each creation offers something different....a feast for the eye, and a smile for the face.    Mrs. Claus has a special touch and a wonderful sense of humor.  Thank you all.
Happy stitching.

Great little quilts from great ladies with big hearts. What a joy it is to see these in the limelight. Those little elves better get busy because they have a big job of sorting & dividing & organizing. Thanks for the quilt show today.

Wonderful collection of little quilts to warm dollies!
I have a top made, but can't seem to get it basted and quilted! How hard can that be?!? : )
