Over the weekend, I had fun piecing this little gem!  I had been mulling over an idea for my Doll Quilt Swap quilt, and finally got to it!  Each block is finished at 4", which means the overall quilt is 16" x 16", perfect doll quilt size. Each block is paper pieced, an often intimidating [...]

The beginnings of my Wonderland quilt: After a full day of celebrating Sophia's birthday, I stayed up late sewing...Joe thinks I *might* have a problem!  It's so soothing to me, sew, press, trim, repeat...more on that later.
