More Info on doll quilt

I had not realized that the darling doll quilt that I received from Lorraine was made from a mystery that had been run by the Temecula Quilt Co. Apparently, the challenge was to add a piece of fabric each day to a block.

So the first day was one piece of fabric. The next day was two pieces of fabric.
Apparently the fabrics could be repeated.

Here are some pictures of some of the blocks so you can hopefully see what I mean. I think it's a great idea for a challenge.

Day 3; 3 pieces of fabric 

5 pieces of fabric 

Here is another shot of the whole quilt so you can see what I'm talking about. And she even put them in the order so they progress from 1 to 12.

I just love it.

On another note, remember I bought that fabric in Hawaii to make a baby quilt for a friend's granddaughter? I'm getting ready for a trip to Wisconsin so I'm starting to put some projects together. I looked through some books yesterday and found a pattern in an old scrap quilting book. This is the block and what I've  done so far. I think it's cute and a nice change of pace!

This is what I  made from 5 fabrics;
I think the block is Puss in the Corner and the book is by Lynn Roddy Brown. Quick and easy! They are 6"

More to follow!! 


  1. I know of a few different Puss in the corner Variations. Glad you could find a quick and easy block to use those fun Hawaiian prints with. The baby will love the bright colors.

  2. Your doll quilt swap is definitively gorgeous !
    The fabrics for the baby's quilt are so fresh's going to be a very cute quilt !!

  3. That is a great idea for a mystery quilt. I love the Hawaiian Puss in the Corner!

  4. Your swap quilt is certainly original, what a great idea. That Hawaiian fabric looks great in the pattern you have chosen.

  5. Clever idea for the exchange quilt. Love the fabrics.
