Pink Scrap Blocks and Doll Clothes

     The color for this month is pink. I have made several pink blocks and have one more set ready to sew.

I am anxious to sew some into a quilt top and finish a quilt. Instead of the whole rainbow I am considering the “Scraphappy” idea in her blog post of Spring Cleaning  to use 2 or 3 colors in a quilt – whether analogous colors or complementary or some other plan.  
I’m linking up with SoScrappy .  

      I also spent a day sewing doll clothes. My granddaughters each have an American Girl doll.   Two 18” AG type dolls also live at my condo and the girls love to play with them all.   The dolls share outfits; however, since we added a doll, I decided more outfits would be good.  I have wonderful scraps from sewing for the girls or scraps from friends.  They made great outfits.

I also used an old tie dyed t-shirt to make a doll t-shirt. 

Enjoy some time sewing or quilting.


  1. OMG!! Can't imagine sewing doll clothes. The girls are going to LOVE the new outfits!!!

  2. Such sweet little doll clothes. Good pink beginning. It will be fun to see how you decide to combine them.

  3. Cute doll clothes. My daughter who is now 41 still has all the Barbie clothes I made for her dolls when she was little. I used to have such fun making them. I made some for the granddaughters but they probably don't even know where they are now.

  4. Your pink blocks are looking very good, and I'm so impressed with all the doll clothes! I wouldn't mind that blue jersey outfit for myself. :D
