Doll Quilts and New Blogs

Some folks are really getting into Doll Quilts, eh? Wee Wonderfuls, Misadventures of Mamma and Jack, and Turkey Feathers. I think it's a fantastic idea. You need very little fabric, but get to try so many patterns without having a huge committment of time. If I ever need a nursery for a little girl, I would definetely want to do a room like this (that seems to be the original inspiration). I found a doll quilt of my own recently... the fabrics are a little faded, but I love it!

Here are some of my favorites made by other crafters:
Chicken Quilt
Quilt for a Wee One
Fresh Tradition
Lady Bug
Green Dot
Red Dot by Vicki
First Doll Quilt by Mamma and Jack
Red Posie

Gets ya thinking, doesn't it? If you've seen some great doll quilts, would you mind leaving me a comment with a link?

Some other blogs I'm sure you'll enjoy visiting:

Fresh Vintage - she really finds some great stuff at yard sales and such. Makes me really hope the weather clear up soon... spring yard sales are too much fun!

Vingage Pretties- I really enjoy her Inspiration Fridays. Lots of great ideas ....

My Many Colored Crayons- I especially enjoy this blog because she is a teacher. I love that she's given each kid a nickname so that she can write about them. Great ideas.

Petite Anglaise- As I've discovered, there are many of us who wish we lived in Paris. She does! I randomly discovered her blog because of an article I'd read. Unfortunately, because of her blogging at work, she lost her job... You can read the longer version of the story here. Glad Blogger's blocked at work -- not that I would blog at work :) !

Bluelines- A blog with Martha's stamp on it? You can't go wrong with that! Very practical stuff.
