Quilting Along With Internet Friends

Whenever I see a cute project on someones blog, I think about making the quilt myself.  That's why I got started making little quilts once a month with my Internet friend Tilda, at http://Huckleberrystitches.blogspot.com.  She has a little parade of doll quilts on the first of every month.  Here is my entry for the June 1st group post.  





It is a rail fence pattern, and I used indigo fabric and shirting.  It finished at 12" by 14". 

Tilda posted the quilt she wants everyone to make for June and I had the day free yesterday, so I made it and here it is:





It measures 14 inches square, and I took a picture of it outside this afternoon.  If you want to see the June 1st quilt along parade, or join in for the July 1st parade, go to Tilda's blog site:  (Here)




The flowers are Dianthus, and they are putting on quite a show right now.  Here are two more pictures of this perennial that is very easy to grow.






Hope you are having a great start to June!  The weather here has been perfect this week in Michigan.

  5. Judy that little indigo quilt at the top reminds me of the quilt you made for me a couple years ago, for the Humble Quilts Doll Quilt exchange. I see some of the same fabrics. Your (my) quilt is on my nightstand, so I look at it every day! I still consider it a treasure.

    2. Thank you! I have a friend's little quilt on my nightstand, so I know what you mean. I love Lori's little quilt exchanges, and am so glad you like mine (yours).

  6. I saw her reference a book for a pattern. Does she get her patterns from the same book or does she skip around?
