Here's another UFO






I posted one of these houses a few days ago, and then found 8 more hidden away. I think the plan was to make a bunch of patchwork doll blocks as well as some trees to add to the houses. Still thinking about this one.

Finishing up a few UFOs...

A UFO is an Unfinished Object -- quilts I start to make but never seem to finish... Sometimes I give up after a few blocks, or sometimes just after cutting the fabric and laying it out on the floot (but I pin the blocks so they don't forget their order!) Sometimes I even get 90% done and then move onto something else... Or actually move, and put it in a moving box, not to be found again for five months!

Here are three quilt tops done.



















 I'm hoping there are some new mothers out there who aren't afraid of baby quilts with no pink in them! (and more heavy on the blue, with some brown too!)

Idea for new doll quilt



Wouldn't these little girlies be cute appliqued onto a quilt?! Even though I just ordered a bunch more matryoshka doll fabric, these might be fun to work with!

patchwork heating pads

I made these as Christmas time. I made long scarf like ones for the men in my family, but of course didn't take any pictures. They were all stuffed with either jasmine rice or flax seed. A little stinky once heated up, but soothing. My boys loved them. These two pretty ones were for my nieces.



I just found this picture from a while ago - last summer? I would like to make another house quilt. This was just practice.





Finishes...



That is the pillow and backside of the brown eyed girl quilt. I'm not sure why I didn't take a final picture of the front before I shipped it out! From a distance they all sort of look the same anyway... I especially love the back of the quilt!




And here is the finished black eyed doll quilt, and a close up of the detailing on the back. Again, it is so pretty that it can be reversible as well!



 And the coordinating pillow...

More Matryoshkas!















Those are the black eyed dolls - I have not used before. And these are the brown eyed dolls, which I've used at least 3 times before? I'm not sure which I like more!















I'll be making pillows for each of these as well - here's the idea for the black eyed doll...
