Sewin' and Stuffin'

Yup, I'm still sewing doll quilts!  (That's 'cause the televised capital murder trial isn't over yet, although I'm thinking that there are probably only two days left.......and then what will I listen to while I'm sewing?  I might have to go back to the "oldie tunes".  Heavenly days!!!!  LOL)  I think I'm going to make one more quilt today and tomorrow and then I'm thinking I will have plenty in case I need lots of angel quilts for the doll swap (like maybe forever???)  I think I'm up to 6 now.

Here's a cool 13 x 17 inch one:

DQS11 Angel Quilt #4

Then, yesterday I didn't have much time, but wanted to sew something so I made a miniature checkerboard 8 inches square, but with 64 3/4 inch pieces:

Miniature Checkerboard

You might actually be able to play checkers too if you use different colored popcorn for pieces.  LOL

Then....................wa-la!  Something many of you have been waiting for:

Easy Wonky Squares

Yup, the new patterns are done and waiting to be sold.  And I have plenty:

Easy Wonky Squares

The pattern includes both lap sizes and 40 inch square baby quilt size and can be adapted for smaller things too once you realize the procedure.  It's really simple and you will love it!  Actually, my quilt shop talked me into writing this pattern because many of their customers couldn't figure out the simple solution when my quilts were in that gallery showing a few weeks ago.

Just like always, when I release a new pattern, these will be on "special" for all of July at a reduced price of $10 and I will pay the shipping right to your door.  I take paypal or will wait for a check once you get the pattern so there is no reason you can't have one as early as next week.  Send your request to:  turznik@execpc.com with your name and address and how many you might want.  I can't wait to "talk" to you!  Thank you ever so much!  I know some of you have been waiting for this one, and I'm pretty sure that this is going to be "it" for this year.  Nothing else is swimming around in my head bursting to get out!  LOL  Happy sewing, my friends!

Great job Carol! Although I find it hard to believe there is nothing "bursting to come out" Give it a day or two, or maybe even a half hour, and I bet you'll have a dozen more pattern ideas!

I want to make quilts for dolls, too! But I don't have a daughter - not even a doll ...
I love that quilt! You have always so wonderful ideas for a pattern and great eye for beautiful colours to match together!
Thank you for an enjoyable moment!
