Something fun to look at while I'm away

A year ago this week I met Sherri from A Quilting Life at the Bryce Canyon retreat. We had been blog buddies for a while. And she took my class making THIS quilt above. I was so flattered to meet her and Dawn and then have them take a class from me - was so fun.
Sherri finished and bound her "All Dressed Up" quilt and put it on her blog. I absolutely love it and I'm gobsmacked just like when I saw Nedra's quilt from my pattern. It just is such an amazing thing to see talented women put a quilt together that started in my head! Love it.
Look at this CUTE new fabric from Fat Quarter Shop. It makes me want to make another "All Dressed Up" quilt!

Love those quilts Nanette ... and that fabric is so sweet. I haven't seen paper dress up dollies for ages, or maybe I just haven't been looking in the right places ;o).
Hugs,
Joy :o)

The fabric makes me think of Betsy McCall paperdolls I used to cut out of McCall's magazine years ago! Really cute!
