Merry Christmas to the little girls!

December is here, and Sophia Grace and Rosie are happy with two little doll quilts to help them celebrate.

Both quilts are made of candy cane striped fabric, and are "H" and "O" alternate blocks, spelling out HO....HO....HO.  Here is the larger one with Sophia Grace and Rosie, who like it very much.  It's 21" square and the letter blocks are 3" square.

  After making this quilt, I made a smaller version.  Here it is, on the kitchen table, ready for the little girls to have tea:

I put a ruler next to it, so you can see the scale.  It measures 11" square.   My daughter gave me the cute little tea set this summer, and this is the first time Sophia Grace and Rosie have used it for tea.  It is so tiny and I love it. 

Also, I"m making progress on this little quilt "Cascadia" from internet instructions and have some parts finished.  The squares finish at 1".  Here is the quilt in progress:

Sorry for the bad lighting; I took this picture last night.  Hopefully the next picture will be better.   It's made from old fabrics of my Mom's and some of my thirty's fabrics.  If you want to make the quilt, Lori (Humble Quilts) has instructions on her blog.  Just search for "Cascadia" at her blog search box.

Sophia Grace and Rosie hope you will take time out of your busy schedule this Christmas season to have a cup of tea.

Just to let you know that I follow your blog and have it listed as one I follow on my blog. I love, love, love the HOHOHO doll quilt. Just perfect for seasonal dollie teas.Cascadia looks like it's going to be a winner, too. I am also doing Bonnie's mystery quilt, although this evening I am figuring out how best to proceed with clue #2. As you know she has given us options as to how to make the chevron blocks. I started with option 1 and it worked out pretty well, so I may just stick with it. Although, come to think of it, option 3 would give me oodles of tiny HSTs to make a doll quilt with. Hmmm......

So cute, it always amazes me how the H stands out, then your eyes refocus and the Os stand out. I never thought about this quilt saying Ho, Ho,Ho. Can't get more Christmas than that.
