A doll quilt fix!

 There's nothing like a little help from your friends to make your day brighter and the load lighter.  Especially if those friends are of  the Mrs. Claus variety.   So, can you guess what came in the mail?

  Three lovelies from  Sharon at VroomansQuilts  were the first on the scene.  All I can say, is wow, she has an amazing stash of leftover blocks!  I love the different ways that Sharon comes up with putting them together.  The two red ones are so cheery and perfect doll quilts for Christmas.


  She used a wonderful assortment of blue fabrics in the third one.  I so love the wonderful snowflake fabrics in this.  There's nothing like a blue and white quilt to soothe and calm.  Thank you so much for being a very prolific Mrs. Claus.

  A new Mrs. Claus sent a package this week, too.
       Kaylaquilts is a member of the Message Board at HGTV.   She signed up as Mrs. Claus to represent 3 different states  this year. ...Arizona, Missouri, and Alaska.    Aren't these beautiful!!

  For all the hexagon lovers, check these 2 out.  Kayla did a heart layout for one, and the hexagons are just under 2" in it.  Such a great design.

    But this little quilt representing the state of Alaska deserves its own special photo.  It really is so wonderful.  The hexagons finished off at 3/4"!!!!  And she hand quilted it also with a decorative feather stitch.  I can't say enough about her artistry on this is so very special. ( I will have to hide it from Rudy the mascot.....he is liable to try to save it for himself!)
  Thank you so much for being a Mrs. Claus and a new friend.
Both of you are going to make some little girls very happy this year.

  All the Mrs. Claus doll quilts are so inspirational.  Each one is a wonderful blend of fabrics and talent, leftover blocks, scraps, a stage to try a new technique, or repeat what you love.  The variety always amazes and moves me. I love sharing what others donate.  I hope you find some inspiration here.
   Happy stitching.

OMG - just love the grandmother's garden quilt - so tiny and such pretty stitching to add to the delight of this. I like the way she did the corners, too.

I get excited everytime I see more doll quilts because I know each one will go to a deserving little girl. Thanks for posting the pics each time you receive them for all of us to see.

They're all wonderful, these are like a mini quilt show. I love Sharon's blue and white one, you're right, very soothing.
