doll pin and other stuff

This is a pin I made for this month's swap. I forgot to take a pic of the card I that I copied for the pin. That is what I had to do is make a pin like a St. Patrick's day card.
I am also adding some stuff to the Pinocchio quilt and will take a pic of it when finished with it's fabulous border that my friend Mona added on for me!

This is a ceramic bunny I made for my quilt guild secret sister. She collects bunnies and her favorite colors are burgandy and gold. I painted the ceramic parts.

This is a quilt I made for the guild challenge....."It's a Guy's World". We had to make a quilt for a teenage boy. They are all being donated to teenage boys in need. it is 60" X 80". I thought colorful would be good for any troubled or in need soul.

Fairy Tale Quilt Challenge

Here is a quilt I made for a quilt guild challenge. Our theme is Fairy Tale and my saying is "There is no excuse not to dream". I picked Pinocchio as I thought if a wooden puppet can dream of becoming a real boy than anyone can dream anything!
I used a woven technique for the bed quilt. It is fabric that has fusible on it. Two different fabrics are woven then fused together.
This is the little 9" doll that goes into the dream cloud. He is the real boy!
I have also been going thru my fabrics and such looking for stuff to donate for an autions one of my quilt guilds is having this month. I found quite a bit of "why did I buy this" fabric to donate! LOL
