I love miniature quilts and started making them last year. I am making the series as shown in this photo to be displayed together. I have two more I want to make to go with these three. I started making them to go with dolls and my children's sewing machine. I will show you those in the future. This doll was made by my sister years ago. My mother brought it to me on one of her visits and it is very precious as my sister passed away.
I try to use all my hobbies as a part of my home decoration. You will rarely see a quilt or cross stitching being displayed exactly the same from year to year. I think it makes your things look new all over again. I am forever searching for small accessories to place with them also. It makes it so much fun to think up a new display.
I have never made a doll and won two kits from Gail Wilson on eBay. I hope to start one before the end of this year. I keep putting it off but the dolls are replicas of old dolls and are so beautiful.
