A few finishes

So I'm still dealing with the aftereffects of the crud.  And trying to get caught up on swaps.  I had such a great schedule for the the last week and a half that is totally blown.  I was supposed to start on Christmas presents in November.  Oh well.  So first up is the Sewingly Yours BOM.  If you do your block and bring it to one of the meetings on the first Tuesday of the month you get your next block kit free.  The initial cost is $10.68.  If you miss you have to pay again.  So here is the second block.  They are in batiks.
Can you tell I had to pice the center block.  Note to self plan for each piece of fabric before cutting.
And here is the first two blocks together.
I like learning different techniques for making the blocks.

I also was able to finish my DS Quilts Doll quilt.  I machine quilted it on my Babylock Sofia. 

I'm still learning how to use it correctly.  It is really sensitive to needle and thread.  I'm still learning.  I did a lot of straight line and out line quilting.  I like the graphic quality.
I bound it with a dark blue and tiny roses print.  The hairclips can be found in the quilting notions setting.  They are great for holding the binding even on larger quilts.

And here is the completed Ds Quilts Doll quilt!  I really like it!  And now to send it on its way to its new owner.

Keep dreaming...Colleen

I love the way the stars on the doll quilt set off the center so nicely!
