Doll quilt progress

Here I am on Lori's antique doll quilt. Just a couple rows to go, and the top will be completed, This has been great fun, thank you so much for sharing your pattern, Lori. Hard for me, though...and a few mistakes. A great learning experience for me!!
Here is where I am on the blue and yellow sampler. Just a small bit, but January is done...yippee!


Hope you have a most wonderful day!

Two quilts going at one time...quite a feat.

Ohh, Cheddar cheese and crackers looks fantastic. I love the fabrics you chose. Oh Julie, Yeah!!! Aren't you just smitten with it? I am. I keep going back and studying your fabrics and your work, too. You do yourself proud!!!

Such fun you bring to us.

Love your Cheddar Cheese and Crackers quilt. I made one too and found it to be a lot more work than I had anticipated.

I think your doll quilt is turning out just fine! I wish I had the energy to be working on the project along with the other quilters who are doing the quilt. I haven't found a bad one in the bunch.
And the new sampler quilt looks so springy. And I wish spring were here.

Blues and yellows - gotta love that. Your doll quilt looks interesting and you did a great job. I was trying to see the blocks and I think I have it figured out - at east the blocks, now the construction is a total other matter. Can't wait to see the next installment of your sampler quilt!

Lori said...

So sweet! I love the yelow in the CC&C quilt. It really brightens it up. I'm sure you'll have it finished in no time.
Love the blue and yellow blocks. They are a reminder of spring!!

Sharon said...

Your doll quilt turned out wonderful! Mine is still waiting to be started, it looks like a lot of work and I had others to finish first. I love your plaid quilts!!!!

Andrea said...

Both quilts are looking great ! I think the sampler is going to be gorgeous. Is the pattern a commercial one ? I would love to do this too.

Stephanie said...

It's a cute doll quilt!

Keeeute!

Donna said...

Love the blue and yellow sampler quilt -- could you please list what pattern you are using?

I knew I'd love your blog as soon as I saw the plaid string in your header -- I have 18 blocks made so far -- I've wanted to make that quilt for years and decided 2010 was the year.

Love your doll quilt, and the blue and yellow sampler is so cheery. Blue and yellow is one of my favorite color combinations. Keep up the great work, it is so inspiring to see quilts coming together :)

Loris said...

Is that the same yellow in both quilts? It looks like a delicious cheddar in the doll quilt and yet a happy daffodil in the blue and yellow quilt...which is looking beautiful by the way. Love them both...as you can tell, I'm about a week behind reading posts...

Libby said...

Oh gosh, I just love the Cheddar doll quilt . . . . I didn't play along, but I think I may just have to go back and make one anyway *s*

Darcie said...

What a darling little quilt, Julie! I love the shirting (just one background, right?) and the reproductions...it looks authentic. Will you keep it for yourself?

In the midst of quite a winter storm here, it's fun seeing your Springtime-looking blue and yellow quilt in progress!

Have you been able to rest? I'm concerned for you.

Hugs....
