True to my name, Small Quilts and Doll Quilts happened this week.
(1). I was putting some scraps away, and found some broken dishes blocks that were lost a while ago. When I was making the broken dishes king sized quilt (this one) I lost some blocks, and had to make more. Now that quilt is completed and I found the lost parts. I decided to make a doll quilt with the blocks, and used all but one block. The top is made and it's ready for machine quilting. It is 14” by 18”. The broken dishes blocks are 2 inches square.
(2) When Bonnie Stapleton gave me some of her civil war repro scraps, there were some pieces that I thought went well together, and this week I joined them together, quilted and bound the little quilt. The little hsts are 1.5” square and the quilt measures 6” x 7.5”. I will be using it as a mug rug. Thank you Bonnie.
(3) While I was working in the box of triangle pieces, I found a group of cheddar triangles and decided to make a fall wall hanging. I added muslin to each triangle to make them squares (hsts) and trimmed them to the largest size they could be uniformly cut. Turns out that was 2.5” x 2.5”. The center is 17.5” square. I added 3” borders to them, and it is ready to machine quilt.
The only other thing I did this week was to embroider Charlie’s name to the leaf on the back of the Third Week in October quilt repair job of last week. Someone suggested I add “In memory of Charlie” to the leaf and I did. Primitive looking but just fine with me. Hunter will like it.
What did you work on this week? Looking forward to seeing your linkup pictures and reading about them. Thank you for posting each week. Please provide information about Design Wall Mondays and a link back to this post.

You have some cute little quilts! Happy stitching!
Very cute minis! I really like that mug rug, the brown and orange just really work together.
Cute cute cute.
You're living up to your blog name today--small quilts and doll quilts!!! They're adorable!
As I've mentioned before, you do have a good eye for matching up these prints and colours. All of these look fabulous, Judy.
Your tribute to Charlie made me smile.
Such sweet little doll quilts - and your tribute to Charlie was perfect. Just perfect.
I was so happy to send my reproduction fabrics off to you knowing you would enjoy them. I was totally done with most repo fabric. (Ha! I'm trying to work through my 30s fabrics!) You sure have gone to town on little quilts. They are darling.
Oh, I remember your Broken Dishes quilt -- I admired it then. I admire it now. And since I'm embarking on a repro reduction project I may actually consider making one of my own. Thanks for the inspiration, Judy!
I like how your In Memory of Charlie turned out - this was a great idea.
So glad you are remembering Charlie! Love all your little minis! HUGS... and stitches
Always such fun to play in the leftovers and scraps! Darling littles you are stitching up.
Looks like HSTs were the theme of your week! Mine too. I really like how all your projects are so different even though they use the same block.
lots of tiny little pieces here, so pretty!
