Quilting Along With Internet Friends

Whenever I see a cute project on someones blog, I think about making the quilt myself.  That's why I got started making little quilts once a month with my Internet friend Tilda, at http://Huckleberrystitches.blogspot.com.  She has a little parade of doll quilts on the first of every month.  Here is my entry for the June 1st group post.  





It is a rail fence pattern, and I used indigo fabric and shirting.  It finished at 12" by 14". 

Tilda posted the quilt she wants everyone to make for June and I had the day free yesterday, so I made it and here it is:





It measures 14 inches square, and I took a picture of it outside this afternoon.  If you want to see the June 1st quilt along parade, or join in for the July 1st parade, go to Tilda's blog site:  (Here)




The flowers are Dianthus, and they are putting on quite a show right now.  Here are two more pictures of this perennial that is very easy to grow.






Hope you are having a great start to June!  The weather here has been perfect this week in Michigan.

Love this quilt and I admire your garden. Also the weather in Athens (Greece) has been sunny this week. Let's welcome the summer!

Shirtings and indigo are such a classic combo - love it! I will check out Tilda's blog.

Judy that little indigo quilt at the top reminds me of the quilt you made for me a couple years ago, for the Humble Quilts Doll Quilt exchange. I see some of the same fabrics. Your (my) quilt is on my nightstand, so I look at it every day! I still consider it a treasure.

I saw her reference a book for a pattern. Does she get her patterns from the same book or does she skip around?

Thank you! I have a friend's little quilt on my nightstand, so I know what you mean. I love Lori's little quilt exchanges, and am so glad you like mine (yours).
