Doll Dress Exchange

Yesterday I had the wonderful experience of visiting with a quilt guild in Scottsdale, Arizona.
It's always so fun to see what other guilds are doing.
The Delightful Quilters is a chapter of the Arizona Quilters Guild
Comprised of about 40 members, I found them to be very Delightful, just like their name!

From the moment I drove up in the parking lot I was welcomed, introduced, and had a chair saved for me by new acquaintances.

Quilters are just the nicest of people!


For their April Block Exchange each participant made a Doll Dress. Two lucky winners had their name drawn from a jar and took home 12 outfits.

Isn't this a great idea for a monthly exchange?

I love these outfits. Makes me want to play dress-ups.

This is really cute. Our guild members have had similar exchanges, more like Sunbonnet Sue but nothing so sweet and modern. Looks like many talented gals - they did a very nice job on the blocks. Yep, somebody was very lucky.

Simply adorable blocks! Each one is fabulous! Makes me nostalgic for the days when our daughter was little. I loved sewing for her and would have made every one of these outfits! Wouldn't this be cute made from a little girl's outgrown clothes and made into a quilt for her daughter?

Nedra, thank you for sharing these darling little doll outfits. So cute. Do you know if they were using a commercial pattern available for purchase?
