I found out about a doll show when I was looking for a place to get new hair for this doll. This was my mother's doll and I'm guessing he was new about 1920. Yes, HE is a boy doll! Doesn't he look cute wrapped up in this quilt, which, BTW, I got in Lori's doll quilt exchange in 2014?

Here he is sitting up on the quilt in the clothes I made for him. When I inherited him, he was wearing a dress! So I made him these overalls and also some flannel pajamas.
When I found out about the doll/toy show, my quilting friend and I decided to be a vendor. I have 2 complete doll beds, a bunch of doll quilts, the porcelain doll in the blue dress below, and some other items I'm hoping to sell. My friend has some dolls and toys to sell. I had a pattern and some fabric that I got at an estate sale, so I decided to make it up - the yellow dress (30s style and fabric) below.
Lastly, here are the bottom border triangles for my DJ quilt that I have done so far. I'm taking a short break before I make more.

Next, the last Moda Block of the Week. These blocks finish at 6" and there will be 48 of them.
And last weeks BOW.
I love the background fabric and will try to purchase a couple yards when it is out in the stores.
Have a great weekend!
