TABLE RUNNER AND DOLL QUILTS

This post will link with QuiltShopGal's Creative Goodness Linky Party.  If you have any new projects, you can link them there as well.

I have had the Moda Laura's London Lawns II charm pack for several years and "finally" decided to do something with it.  I made HSTs with the charm pack fabrics and two different white on white fabrics.  This will make a great spring or summer table runner.



I quilted it with white thread on the white portion and a variegated blue, pink and green on the colored portions.


There were some 5" squares left over, so I cut them into 2 1/2" squares and made a couple simple doll quilts out of them using the backing fabric for the alternating yellow squares.


I dug around in my stash to find a backing for the doll quilts and came up with this Timeless Treasures doll fabric by Bonnie Benn Stratton.  It is to cute and I had been saving it for something - but didn't know what.


I still need to sew on the binding, but will get that done this weekend.  Thanks for visiting!  What have you been working on?

I love how you quilted the sashings in the table runner! The doll quilts are precious. I've been working "cultivating" wildflowers this week, and finally got the big thing sandwiched yesterday. I hope to begin quilting it today; don't know how much I'll get done with looking out for storms here today. ---"Love"

Love all your new projects. I have been knitting. Can you believe it? I started one project, it's nearly finished, and I have another in the works. Like I need another hobby.

Your table runner is inspiring. I have a need for 3 table runners soon, and I think I might use your idea for one of them. Very nice.

Your table runner is so pretty. I love the quilting you did on it! And those doll quilts are sweet... especially the fabric you used for the backing. Some little one is going to love them.

Well, you've been so busy getting those projects moved along so nicely! Good work and a perfect use for that carefully saved dolly fabric. My low energy coughing/cold left me with only one row pinned to sashing and not even sewn yet. Maybe today.

So sweet.

The quilting on the table runner is great and makes a simple design so much more. The back for the little doll quilt is sweet and a perfect fit for it's purpose.
