Dolly Dress Up #6 - Katrina

This is my 6th Dolly Dress Up.  I entered it in the fair and someone asked for the pattern.  There really isn't a pattern.  I used the ideas from the "Circle of Nine" book, "Dolly Dress Up" fabric by Holly Holderman and I designed my own quilt.  You could make a quilt similar by using the "Circle on Nine" concept and any other fabric with pictures printed on it.  I don't think this fabric is still available. I am considering another quilt with the same concept, but  different pictures.
This quilt was made for my church calling on the baby committee.  One of our congregation had a baby and this is the quilt given to her.  We only have 3 or 4 babies a year so making a quilt for them is realistic.  My daughter's congregation has 3 or 4 a month.  That would be hard to keep up with.  
If you look real close, the babies name is in the top red checked section and the year is in the top white section.
Just a close up of the corner.
Another corner.
As always a label.  These Dolly Dress Up quilts are some of my husbands favorite quilts that I make.

Solar System Quilt






I have joined a quilt along from "A Few Scraps."
I am really excited about it. Here is the top I made. I made it from a free pattern on http://www.maryquilts.com/. I was hoping to make it work for this quilt along. A Few Scraps said she got her inspiration from Mary. I think it will work just fine for this quilt along. If you are interested in joining, here is the link:

 The last paragraph was written in 2010.  I never posted pictures of the completed quilt.  I just forgot, so I am posting the pictures now.
 Quilting close up and my name.
I love pieced backs.  This uses the left over fabric plus some star fabric.

Jungle Wall Hanging

I found these animal blocks in a pile of scraps.  I decided to make a doll quilt.  Then when it turned out so cute I decided to make it into a wall hanging. 
A close up of the inside.
Even closer to show the quilting.  I really like this machine quilting pattern.
Pieced back with a label.

Two Charm Packs and a Yard

This pattern is called Two Charm Packs and a Yard.  I made the pattern from scraps so it looks a little different.  The red and green should have been only one color which would have been the "yard."
I wanted to quilt is simply but also a little nice.  I added the flowers to fancy it up a bit.  Click on the photo to make it larger.
I quilted the names of the recepiants on the quilt itself.
I added their wedding year.
One shot of both.
The flower that fancied it up.  This is actually a very easy flower.
Back quilting.
It isn't finished until it is labeled.
Fabric line is Madeira.  Simple but nice.
