What I’m Working On

Two Charming Coins Doll Quilts

P1100928  P1100933

   I like using the flannel wall, because it helps me to see the best color arrangement.


These quilts were inspired by a piece of fabric my neighbor gave me this summer.  This is the fabric both quilts have in common.   I used two little squares of this fabric in each row.

Charming Coins Purple And Green Quilt II

I machine pieced the tops, used 100% cotton batting, and marked each top with Crayola Washable Coloring Markers.  I’m making progress on the hand quilting.



The blue quilt is done!

I’ll show you the other doll quilt as soon as I’ve finished the quilting and tacked the edging in place!

Blessings on your day!


A Good Thought

I light a candle for this thought written by Gregory Maguire:


“Sometimes people from worlds apart come together for an hour, and for an hour learn to speak each other’s language, before they forget it again.”

This quote is found in the Foreward of The Mary Poppins Celebrating the 80th Anniversary Collection of Books regarding Maquire’s personal visit with P. L. Travers.

I give thanks for moments like these.
