Baby Doll Quilt and WINNERS!

Hello Quilting Friends

I know, I know you want to know who won the anniversary giveaway. But if I tell you who won you will not read the rest. LOL So I want to tell you what I have been working on sense I finished the "i heart you" quilt top.

You see one of my nieces is having her 2nd birthday next week and she loves, loves, loves baby dolls. She is a great mother to her "babies" too. Last week she wanted to prove to her mom and dad that she was a big girl. So during the night she tried to climb out of her crib. 

The next day her mom took her to the doctor and found out she had broken 2 bones in her arm while trying to get out of her crib. 

Here she is with her little pink cast.

So I decided to buy her a baby doll for her birthday. But what kind of aunt would I be if I did not make her a quilt for her to wrap that baby doll in?!

So I have been working on a baby doll quilt. I just dug through my scraps and put together some simple 9 patch blocks.

Here is the baby doll and quilt top.
(I think it measured 12x24 or there about.)

I had some Valdani thread on my shelf so I decided to give it a try. Now mind you I am an Aurifil girl all the way. My machine loves it. But I hate to be wasteful and this thread has just been sitting. This is their variegated in "Children's Play" V49 35wt. very thick. It was slow going but this was a small quilt. 

Sorry for the blurry photos I was in a hurry to get this in the mail today.  

I have this jar full of bindings ends so I decided I could go with a scrapy binding as well.

Laura over at Sewing Mom Podcast talked about getting her patterns organized. So I decided to use the idea she talked about and get mine organized too. I have purchased a lot of PDF patterns lately and this is going to be great. Otherwise they get stuffed into a drawer. 
So that is what has been going on over here in my little quilty world.

So now for the part you have all been waiting for!
