Babushka Dolls

I love nesting dolls or as we always called them when I was growing up Babushka's.  This was a very hard quilt to complete and took a long time.  Each doll was painstakingly paper pieced using foundation paper.
 The grid lines had to be measured and drawn on with a washable pen.  The faces were drawn on with fabric marker.
 Each set of three dolls has coordinating fabric.
 The pattern called for another set of three dolls but 9 was my limit.  I really liked this pattern and I love the way it turned out.  But it was definitely a difficult project which took almost a year to complete.

Skeleton Halloween Apron

I was saving this black apron for a special reason.  I just didn't know what the reason was until I saw a Skeleton Halloween Apron.  Fortunately I had some skeleton bone patterns lying around.  A little felt and some iron on adhesive and I have my own Skeleton Halloween Apron.  Happy Baking.
