Doll Quilts


Thanks so much for the wonderful contribution of so many quilters. We met our goal, which is different and flexible every year, counting what I expect in at the December meeting. so this year was about 800. The children are always excited to get something so bright and cozy of their very own. Quilts will be delivered to the various sites before Christmas and each teacher handles it differently.  I like to aim at color, I spy, and fun designs. […]

Workday in Doll Quilts…Deere Wiman Carriage House, Moline…9-2 -ish….I bring the fabric, battings, some equipment, chocolates and some tops needing to be ‘sandwiched’ and bagged. New members are invited to come and get acquainted. It’s a good way to start getting involved. Come for the whole time, bring lunch, or stop in to see what we do, and raid the stash for doll quilts. Drive into the Deere Wiman house driveway, unload, then move car to street, unless you have […]

Doll Quilt Demo


Post Image

I hope to include some doll quilt action at our demo booth at the Quilt Show which would include illustrating how larger quilts go together. Any volunteers? Also, I have volunteered to advertise the show by setting up displays at several local libraries for August and September. The cases available differ so we can use an assortment of smaller items showing the range of quilt techniques, patterns, designs, sewing gadgetry, and that represent what our guild does. If you would like […]
