Same old, same old

Leopards don't change their spots, and I don't change the way I quilt.  Never let a half completed project get in the way of starting something new!  

Well, I have completed my Dollies. They are a multiracial set, with no pink faces amongst them.  Lots of different sizes and styles, with various bits of machine and hand embroidery to set them off. 

The dolly with the pink dress has flowers embroidered onto her hat - albeit rather out of focus flowers!  She looks better in reality.  

Here is a quilt made from strips and strings.  I went through a lot of donated blue fabrics and cut 2.5" strips, and put them into this arrangement from Stuart Hillard's book '100 Scrap Quilts'. It's great for anyone who likes blue.  I think I'll make some more in different colours. 

I continue to be obsessed by MAM, and here is another way of using the blocks.  It uses plenty of 2.5" and 1.5" scraps too.  I'm looking forward to quilting it. 

And here is my latest obsession.  String blocks I found on the web.  (I'll credit them when I remember where I found the picture.). More blues to make, but fun to do.  
What's happening with my Sarah Fielke quilt?  Not much.  I have more interesting things to do at the moment!  But I will get back to it, soon, honest.

You always have so much going on! I get tired just reading your blog posts sometimes. Love your multi racial dolls.
