Designing Monday

At the guild auction last month, my friend, Barb won some books and she gave this one to me.

 She knows I love to make little quilts.  I asked her which one of the quilts she liked best in the book and she picked Anna's Choice.  I pieced together this little cutie patootie out of reproduction fabrics I found in my stash using the pattern that Barb picked.  She did say that her doll is wearing green.  I guess I will have to bind it in green so it at least looks like it has more green.  LOL.

I also pieced one more of the Scrap Basket Blocks from Lisa Bonjean's blog.

Hop on over to Judy's blog to see more quilty designs.


  1. That looks like a great book! How sweet of you to make a quilt for your friend Barb... it is a cutie patootie! I still haven't started Lisa's blocks... and I love 'em!

  2. Such a cute quilt for your friend. I have been doing a lot of 30s repo quilts lately and I love how cheerful the fabrics are.

  3. That is a sweet little quilt for your friend's dolly.
    I have all of the scrap basket blocks printed out. My fabrics are chosen. I haven't made a single one.
    I like you block--the colors are warm and friendly. Are you making each block from different colors, or sticking with this palette? I can't remember what you others were like, colorwise.

  4. That looks like a great book. What is the actual size of the quilt?

  5. How cute! I remember that book - It's easy to work in the small stuff because you finish a lot more. What a beautiful gift. I love the other block as well, and it's in my colors. Thanks for taking time to blog and share with us.
