doll quilts and chippy white finds

Hi friends and neighbors (wave!)

It’s a beautiful day in Michigan today, sunny and not as frigidly cold as it was the last two days.  So who’s ready for spring? HAHAHA We’ve got a long wait don’t we?

I’ve been really attracted to white chippy objects lately and here’s what I’ve found:

A large old basket found on an antique outing with my Momma, only 10 bucks!!

Not sure where it will live permanently, but for now it sits on the dining room hutch.

And this precious tiny white sock darner on etsy. Oh it’s so cute!

In the sewing room, I’ve been working on some little doll quilts.  I have been searching for a little primitive doll bed for awhile now and can’t seem to find one that is just right, so I think I will attempt to make one this week.

Here are a few quilts that are all finished up. I made several to list in my shop later this week. While I was cutting I thought I would cut enough for a couple kits: some to list, and some to give away   later this week.

I’ve gotta say that I need LOTS of practice binding on those weird angles of a tumbler quilt! I didn’t do so well, guess I’ll keep that one for myself. =)

Have a great weekend!

    Great buys! Love the basket – and all the little quilts. Does the purchase of the sock darner mean that you will now be starting to darn socks? hehe

    Your doll quilts are so sweet. I love making them because they are quick and use up lots of scraps. Little Quilts quilt store has a booklet entitled Child’s Play with a very easy to make rope bed that you might like to try making. It’s from 1997, so you may have to try Amazon or EBay if the store does not still carry it.
