Embroidered the Cowboy-dogs by hand and sewed the blocks into a quilt top. Tied it together.

Made from scraps from my Grandma Lou - mostly from clothes she made me. Used them to make a disappearing nine-patch quilt. First quilt that I quilted on a Long-arm.

The second quilt I started – but if I remember correctly it was the first one I finished. Made primarily from Roy Rogers fabrics. Was tied, and was made in 2007.

The Quilt top was made by my Grandma Lou at my request. I hand quilted the entire quilt top. Was the first hand quilted top that I finished on my own. Made in 2007 or 2008.

Southern Belle Quilt. I made this one off a quilt made by my great-grandmother in the 70's It's completely different colors but I traced the design off her quilt. My first attempt at applique - and it wasn't a very good attempt.

I made this doll dress as a gift for a little girl in Texas. It’s one of the fancier dresses I have made! I made it from Felicity’s Christmas Dress pattern here.

One of the many things I enjoy doing is sewing. There is a young girl as our church who has the American Girl doll named Kit, who is from the 1930’s. Her doll doesn’t have many clothes, so I thought I’d make her a few more – the dresses are made to look similar to the style of the 30’s, including the use of 30’s reproduction material. The Pattern I used (with a few minor adjustments because of the size of the doll) was Vogue number 7565.

Another item I made for my young friend was a bed. I found the idea at a fabric store. They had a pattern for sale to purchase, but Momma assured me I could make it fine with out a pattern. I used a clear plastic tub for the bed, so it doubles as a storage container. The dust ruffle is made out of 3, 6″ x 43″ strips of fabric. Sticky Velcro is what I used to keep the ruffle on the plastic bin. The quilt is made of 30, 4 1/2″ blocks of fabric. For the fitted sheet I measured the lid of the bin and added a few extra inches to case elastic in, and then cut the fabric to that size. I rounded all the corners before folding the the edge over to make a casing for the elastic. There is a small mattress (not pictured) made out of quilt batting and a scrap of white muslin that is underneath the fitted sheet. The flat sheet is measured to fit underneath the quilt, and the pillow is stuffed with left over quilt batting.
