Can YOU help?

My friend Victoria over at Bumble Beans is busier than I ever want to be,
but she always manages to come up with a quilt when the need arises.
Now she is collecting anvil blocks  and she has a tutorial on her blog for the block plus the address
of where to send them if you would like to join in.
This block is on the way Victoria :0).  It is my little way of helping.
Happy Sewing,  Kim

Jackie's blogger of the month

Jackie had this great BOM with blocks designed by a different blogger each month, some bloggers you might recognize.  Well after starting it, moving and finding it again I am happy to say I have the top
finished :0).  The free patterns are still available on her blog, just hit the Jackie link.

Now to  quilt  it.

Matching doll quilts

My girlfriend gave me some fatquarters this summer  so I cut them all up into 1.5 inch strips.

I found a nice bright fabric to use as the center squares and made some
log cabin blocks.

Now these are all ready for my girlfriend to take to her adorable little granddaughters who love to play baby dolls together.    And since this is the only thing I finished this week I will link up with Amanda Jean to show them off :0)..........  Happy Sewing, Kim

Doll quilt swap

I enjoy belonging to a doll quilt swap online, here is information if you'd like to join this group.

This is the doll quilt I received this month from my swap partner Diane in Minnesota, the
theme this month is "nine patch".   Diane made me a disappearing nine patch in lovely  shades of pink and violet then machine quilted it, it is pretty darn cute isn't it?


Happy Sewing,

I've been busy making coddlers for premature babies in our local community along with
my group called the Sea Trail Grandma's.
If you have a premature baby in your life you can go to Michele's blog and
get plenty of free patterns to sew something tiny.

Happy Sewing, Kim

Finish it up Friday

I enjoy looking at Amanda Jean's  blog especially on Fridays when everyone links up there are so  many  completed projects to see from her linky party.   It is even more fun when I have something to add!  Yeah for me!  A finish this week of a scrappy quilt made from left overs from a project I made before my granddaughter was born and this quilt is now for her 5th birthday.
