Does that make me an "artiste"? I've always felt that quilting is an art form with fabric as the palette.
Kay Mackenzie wrote a darling book called Dolls and Dresses to Applique, and I made all 12 doll blocks for an (unfinished) auction quilt for a hospital fundraiser. Lately, however, I decided to try to use a doll pattern in a large size for Project Linus quilts. I enlarged a couple of the book's patterns to a 28-inch size and have made three little quilts so far. I haven't donated them yet but hope they can be given to girls who resemble them a bit--like the American Girl dolls that can be purchased as look-alikes for little girls. (Or they can be given to girls who just like them!)
