Who knew? I sure didn’t. Did you know, there’s a Blogger’s Quilt Festival going on this week and this is not the first time it’s been held?
This blogging and quilting thing is big.
As of this moment there are 578 quilts from different bloggers linked. Schnap, the Co-Q, and I decided to put this quilt in the pile. Perhaps we’ll be number 579. Go check it out.
Here’s the story – It’s sort of unlike other quilts I’ve made. I usually do not use purchased patterns (preferring the challenge of figuring out pieced blocks through trial, error, aggravation, and geometry), but I saw this one at PIQF (Pacific International Quilt Festival) and loved it…This one was too cute to resist. There’s no question that this is a quilt pattern was designed for a girl, and likely a young one. But this gal (and her dog) have resisted giving this quilt away. We like it too much.
If you look closely, you’ll see that I quilted swingy long hair and different dresses on each doll.
