Dolls and quilting

This is a doll I made for the primative Americana challenge On Cloth Doll Artistry. I used new fabric but vintage lace pieces. We all used the same pattern made by Sherrie Nordgren. I had fun making her. She didn't win but I was happy with her.

This is a doll I made for the School Doll Challenge at CDA.  The pattern is by Lizzie Dodd. She is 7 inches high and dressed in Vintage laces and cloth pieces. She is a Victorian schoolgirl from 1900's. I named her Diane after my mom who had lovely long brown hair.
These are some placemats I made for Christmas for our TV dinner wooden trays. We alway eat in front of the TV my hubby and me! I experimented with the quilting on these.
