In The Land of Blog
Once upon a time in the Land of Blog a quilter named Sharon held a contest on her blog. The prize was a lovely little assortment of 30's prints (92 4 1/2" squares) and I was the lucky winner. It should be noted right now that I haven't won another thing on Sharon's blog :-( (OK, I'm over it and moving on with my story) I've had this little assortment sitting on my sewing table waiting for inspiration to strike.
In the meantime there was another quilter, Libby, who's been making some adorable doll quilts from a book called Prairie Children and Their Quilts. Her quilts are soooooo cute that everyone is wanting to join the doll quilt craze (aka Monkey See, Monkey Do - LOL). Yes, yes me too but so far I've only been dreaming about making one or two. During this craze a little bird told Carol that I was coveting that book so she surprised me and sent one to me. Lucky me :-)
I know another quilter in the Land of Blog who has been wanting to make some doll quilts just like Libby. This quilter has one of the most giving spirits I've ever encountered and I'm lucky to call her a friend. As you travel through the Land of Blog you might notice little treasures that she sends to fellow quilters. Remember I've been waiting for inspiration to strike so I could make something with my cute charms I won from Sharon and it finally happened this morning! :-)
The doll quilt in the picture is the result of my inspirational moment. I cut all the charms in half, threw that cutie together and still have enough to make one for another someone and one for me. I plan to quilt this very, very soon and pop it in the mail to surprise my friend in the Land of Blog!
And, the quilters all live happily ever after in the Land of Blog!
Do you think she'll like it and be surprised? I just hope it's not too big!
Thanks for visiting and reading my silly tale!
