Wow! Curved String Quilt!


This fabulous string-curves quilt is the creation of Ann. She describes the process on her blog: Fret Not Yourself. Did you notice the circle that extends off the lower right corner? Ann says she used bias binding for that part, but straight-of-grain binding for the rest. Clever! 
(The photo is by Ann too.)

A Vintage Quilt for Fifty Cents?


Yes! A friend in my quilt guild recently bought this vintage feathered star quilt at the Bethlehem (CT) Fair for fifty cents! It's in very good condition too. And look at all those tiny triangles! I didn't think that happened any more!

Hi Doll Eyes!


Lisa in New Zealand used 13 shades of green, gray, brown and gold to embroider the iris for her doll eyes. She used a photo of her own eye as a guide. Lisa aims to create cloth dolls like the ones from the 1930's, but with a more updated look. You can see how she does it here: Big Little.
