Wow.........this Spring's Bloggers' Quilt Festival is NO DISAPPOINTMENT, huh?
I have seen so many quilts that inspire me, some making me long to do one JUST LIKE the one I see !
Never thought I'd want to make another ruffle on a quilt. I made this one in 1987 or so, on this little log-cabin sampler quilt. I didn't care for the making of it, and figured I'd been there, done that, end of story.
But this week, 1 1/2 year-old Autumn Taylor was over and we were playing dolls (hooray, a little girl who still loves dolls !), and when I wrapped her baby in this quilt, the ruffle just made it adorable ! All I've ever done is put the quilt on a table or chair as decoration, but the size and ruffle are perfect for a girly-girl's doll.
So that's my starting point........back to seeking inspiration ! Boy did I pick the wrong time to switch to a slower internet connection.
Hope you're enjoying the 'show', and thank you to all of my new followers........hope to have some better posts soon !
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
"NOW THANKS BE UNTO GOD, WHICH ALWAYS CAUSETH US TO TRIUMPH IN CHRIST !"
The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.
