Last post a month ago, but the time has flown by! My big sister from California came to visit for a nice long weekend, and we got to celebrate her birthday together. I sent her home with 3 LOG CABIN pillows that match the quilt I am making for her GREAT granddaughter. I saved 1 pillow to go with the quilt. Now, sadly; that quilt is still a work in progress; 8 of the blocks quilted; then set aside for other projects!
You know how it goes when you get busy! I was prewashing all my fabric for the Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt; then it needed to be ironed; and stacked up and ready! Last Friday Clue # 1 was released! So; 280 half-square triangles; and 100 blocks have been made. All but 80 of the HST made it into the blocks. Tomorrow is a new clue.
In between all of this, I decided to pursue and find Moda Flats Doll panels. They released last spring and I could never find them in the local stores or on line. I was really drawn to them; thinking what a fun thing to make for the grandkids. I watched a You-Tube video and was HOOKED. So, the frantic Grandma pursuit began! And I scored big time. I found them at a fabric shop in central Indiana; and got 6 panels. Once I had them in my hand I realized I could really do this without all 6 panels. Each panel made 2 dolls; and came with multiple hair combinations. I ended up selling 5 of the panels to my friends.(I could not hoard them, they are so much fun!)
I have been having a grand time making “fabric” paper dolls for the grandkids. Each one is better than the last. I have made some clothing “on my own” and other outfits by using .jpg images and sizing them to fit; then printing on fabric. I have enjoyed the creation of these dolls and I hope the grandkids like them as much as all the grandma’s I have shown them to.
Having SEW much fun!!
