Hi Leslie... I would love to do some little doll quilts. Right now that is pretty much all I can do until Im recovered from Surgery. I bet some of the little girls up in the Cancer center and such would love them for their Dollies. 

I think it would be more of an art to me...I am an artist and love to make new exciting.  I'll have to check out what you have done.. thanks.  Diana

I'm running into a "snag" on my latest project.  That's what happens when you try to make a fat quarter into the "star" fabric in a quilt.  I think I have a solution, but it will mean more work than I had planned on putting into this little quilt.  Oh's not like I have so much else to do!!!

Hi, Rebecca!  I also try to spray baste outside, but we're rarely that hot, up here in NW Wisconsin!


I also find that I don't even need to baste some of my small ones -- just starch the back so it has less chance of puckering up -- then pin from the front -- especially with Thermore batting -- it kind of clings to the fabric.

I have just started to make doll quilts.  I have a few tops completed but need to quilt them.  I'm hoping for the weather to cool off so I can spray baste them out on the patio.  This Summer has been too hot to go outdoors.  I live in Sugar Land, just outside of Houston and this part of Texas had temps over 100 all season.
