Doll Quilt Swap

I participated in Lori's doll quilt swap.  I received an e-mail that the one I made was received so I thought I would show a picture of it.  Judy C. was  the name I received and she lives in Nebraska.  I like log cabin quilts very much and thought it would be a good choice for the doll size quilt I would make.  The log cabin blocks are three inches square finished.  I used Civil War  reproduction fabrics for it.  The quilt size is approximately 18 inches by 22 inches.



Lori, Cathy, Nancy, LuAnn and myself have been participating in a sew-along and it won't be long before everyone has their blocks done and quilt tops in the works.  My top is shown in the previous post.  We have enjoyed the encouragement of doing it as a small group and have decided to work on another quilt.  We will be using Jeana Kimball's book "Old Voices New Impressions".


This is the quilt version we will be working towards.  The blocks for the cover quilt are five inches square.  We will be working on an enlarged version of eight inches square which is what the back cover quilt block size is.  Some of the Lori Smith block patterns are similar in style and could be included for a larger size quilt.


The book is available on Amazon but the price is now $42.75.  I checked the designer's website and she no longer has the book for sale.  If you want to participate and have the book, know someone you can borrow one from or don't mind paying $42.75, please let us know.  We plan to start July 13th.

Thank you for stopping by.
Karen

  14. Ditto on your sweet little quilt. Makes me realize its been a long time since I've made a Log Cabin quilt and am now feeling the urge to start one. I already have a box of strips, so why not??

    Your new sampler quilt looks intriguing, but alas.... applique is a deal breaker for me. Love to look at it, misery to try to do it.

    Have fun!!

  17. How absolutely appropriate for you to make a log cabin quilt. It is precious beyond words. I keep cutting strips so eventually I'll make one too. Lovely job, Karen.

  18. Hi. I have that book and have long wanted to do the smaller, bigger block quilt. I'd love to join you!

  21. Love the little logs quilt you sent! I'm still working on mine to send... hopefully in the mail tomorrow.
    If you know if anyone that has the book OldVoicesNewImpressions to lend, would you please have them contact me? I had a copy that was borrowed and now is missing or I'd be joining in on this one. Thanks!

  22. The log cabin is adorable. I look forward to seeing the appliqué from this book through you, I won't be buying the book at that price.

  23. How I wished I would have been able to participate in the little quilt exchange...my heart just skipped a beat seeing the one you made!

  24. I love your Log Cabin quilt! Three inch blocks? So tiny! I have been thinking of making one similar in pinks and browns. I ordered the book and will be joining you in the sew along!

  25. Your post made me laugh. I not only have the Old Voices book, but when the book came out one of our local quilt shops did the applique' blocks as a BOM. I have all of those block kits in a baggie along with the book just waiting to be stitched. So if I can keep up with a few Ohio blocks each week, I'll probably join you for this one, too. I'll have to see if the kits have enough fabric for a larger block.

  26. I have this book. Several years ago I took a couple of classes from Jeanna Kimball. We did two blocks from this book. Jeanna Kimball is a great teacher. She inspired me so much and taught me so much in those two classes.

  27. I have Jeanna Kimball's book on my shelf for many, many years and have even made a couple of the blocks, but only a couple! Enlarging the blocks to 8" sounds perfect to me, so I would love to join in with the sew-along.

  28. Okay, I think I lost my first attempt at commenting here so excuse me if I'm repeating myself. I'll make it quick - have the book, would love to join, time to get my "stuff" together between now and mid-July. P.S. Love your little bitty log cabin. :)

  29. Your log cabin doll quilt is my very favorite of the entire exchange! How lovely and what a lot of work......it is really a beauty, I hope the recipient loved it! What size "logs" did you use?

    Happy Sewing
