I have had such a great morning!
I had a short visit by a cardinal hopping on the balcony railing--too short to grab the camera, though. Cardinals are few and far between in our neighborhood. I think I've only seen 3 or 4 in the fifteen years we've lived here, so it was quite a treat to have him drop by!
|I was a little tricky quilting around the kerchiefs--I had to pin them out of the way.|
|I used to love playing with paper dolls as a child and this quilt was just as much fun.|
|I loved putting together the fabrics for the dresses and hats.|
|I used an extra block for the label on the back.|
The Paper Dolls quilt is all about the hats! There were only a few shapes in the pattern, so I drew up a few more--here's the fashion show:
|I got a chance to use my new Martha Stewart hydrangea punch too!|
These are the tiny flowers from the punch.
|This is the large hydrangea flower.|
|This flower is just a circle with little nips to make petals.|
|This is one of those little pre-made ribbon flowers from JoAnne's.|
