Doll Quilt

Our sweet little neighbor is the proud owner of one of the Black Apple dolls I made last year. She has named her Penny and she is well-loved. Penny is her best friend and bedtime pal.

Since we live in New England I thought it would be nice for Penny to have a little quilt of her own for those cold nights. Our neighbor loved it and immediately put it to use.

I enjoyed making this quilt because the top was made completely from scraps. It was a lot of fun going through my scrap basket for these prints. I've come to find scrap busting projects quite pleasing. I backed it with Michael Miller's Dick and Jane Phrases. I sewed it pillowcase style then edge stitched it closed and used rounded corners.

We rang in the first of the year having a few good friends over for dinner and delicious Kahlua trifle. Good food, good friends and adorable babies, it was a great way to ring in the start of 2011.

My only resolution is to be more productive, in all areas. Basically I've cranked my Super Mom meter to turbo. So far the cubs are happier, Papa Bear is happier and I feel a greater sense of accomplishment because everyone is having their needs met.

I've completed a few other projects but can not put them up until the recipients have received them (I believe they all follow my blog). I am very late on Christmas presents this year (tisk tisk). I will share them once it is safe.
