The week before I went back to school (teaching Kindergarten), I was given a doll baby bed. The day before the children were due to arrive, I decided I needed a blanket for the poor dolls. So I considered just giving them a little flannel blanket, but I am a quilter, so a quilt was in order.
I sat down at 4 pm on Sunday to make my little quilt. I sewed the top and as I usually do, pieced a back to use. Then I looked at the two pieces and thought, these could be two separate quilts. And they were small enough to just used some yardage as the backings.
So that is what I did.
I had fun using the Jester's Hat quilting pattern from Wendy at Ivory Spring. I like how swirly it looks.
I used some Laurel Burch butterflies for the backing for this one.

In other quilting news, we had a potholder swap. I was supposed to make a fall themed potholder but I forgot about the theme and made this. I practiced my swirly quilting.
|I am still in love with these cross blocks!|
I got back a very cute Halloween potholder from Heather. I love it. It is a perfect block for Halloween! Can't picture using it, though. I may have to hang it on the wall.
