This group isn't quite as flapper girl as I'd originally intended. I found the straight up and down dresses made the ladies look too tubular, so instead created Edwardian style hobble skirts for my dolls, to give them more shape. I like to think that while I'm busily patchworking or quilting my ladies are lunching somewhere fabulous like the Ritz, or the Savoy–oh to be a lady of leisure!
As for the quilt-as-you-go Star Quilt, this is a college project that I've almost completed. Comprised of six sections, each consisting of various star blocks, eg, compass (see photo below), La fayette and Martha Washington's Star, I feel as if I've been working on it for ever, even though it's only been seven months. However, this week, I finished patchworking the final section and assembled the first four quilted sections, so I see light at the end of the tunnel and hope to show you the finished quilt soon.
After that, I'd like to make a start on a quilt of my own design, perhaps something simpler, based on a Chinese Coins pattern and suggestive of the sea side. But first, I'll make some more peg dolls–I think they are becoming a displacement activity!
