Double Your Pleasure, Double Your Fun.....

This week I received two doll quilts in the doll quilt exchange that Lori (of Humble Quilts blog) organized.  I was so pleased, that I couldn't believe my good fortune!  I started humming that little jingle about Doublemint gum.....double your pleasure, double your fun.....with two quilts instead of one!  Thank you thank you to Laura Valdez of Coal City, IL!

Here they are, shown with the log cabin doll house:

They are both quilts from the monthly Temecula Quilt Company's Monthly Mini program.  I love, love, love the fabrics in both quilts.  Here are more pictures of them:

Sophia Grace and Rosie love them too!  A new quilt for each girl, just perfect.

I love the border on this one, with the straight line quilting that fits it so well.
Here is the view from the back of the cabin doll house, with all the animals that live in it:

Memorial Day poppies were sold this week, to help support the veterans, and I am always glad to contribute.  

In memory of all the fallen heroes that we honor this week, I will close this blog post with a field of poppies, and the poem about Flanders Field:

by John McCrae, May 1915
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Judy, so glad you like the doll quilts. They are perfect for your "house" and so glad the "girls" like them! Have a great day! Laura V.

How nice to receive two. at first, I thought maybe you traded with two people but see that they both came from the same person.
