Blogger's Quilt Festival - Post 1





Well, it is Spring International Quilt Market time.  And since many of us are unable to attend the lovely  Amy of Amy's Creative Side   hosts the wonderful Blogger's Quilt Festival, so we get a chance to strut our stuff.


Doll/Mini Quilt Entry



This is the Monthly Doll Quilt Swap piece made for the theme in March 2013 'Animals' . These bow tie kitties are from an adaptation of a pattern found in the book "Christmas Cats & Dogs' by Janet Kime with Martingale co.  It is measures 18" x 22" and I quilted on my home machine using swirls, loops and little paw prints. 


I always make a matching little dollie to go with the quilt - from the scraps of the little quilt.  And I always use buttons - tiny buttons!

Please be sure to visit all the entries - you will be inspired.

Sewingly yours,
Sharon
