Some scrap projects from the past....

Kathie and I were chatting today about scraps - what's new huh! :) Anyway, she is using her leftover squares from her liberated star quilt to make those 25-patches. This made me remember about 3 years ago when I made doll quilts to go with some cute primitive dolls I bought at a craft type store.
I requested 4 dolls to be made in plaid/primitive colors and asked if I could have some scraps to make quilts to go with them. The lady was agreeable and I made 4 16-patch doll quilts to go with the dolls for Christmas presents. And can you believe it - I can find pictures of only 2 of them. Oh well.
Anyway, Thanks Kathie for the memory!

AhhAAA! Found the 3rd one.....

Great looking doll quilts Dawn, maybe you can cut for another little quilt when you start on your dressmakers scrap quilt. I know some aren't enough..but maybe??

Those doll quilts are wonderful. I think a big one would go perfect in my living room ! I am going to keep them in my mind when choosing colors.
