Quilt With Us

Hey Yawl!

It has been a while since I last posted.  All is well.  I am currently enrolled in grad school pursuing a masters in elementary education.  It has been 20yrs since my BS but I'm doing very well in my class.  I've already taken one class and next week will be mid-terms in my 2nd class.  I have 8 more classes to go.  I should graduate in May 2013. It took a minute to dust the cobwebs out of my brain though...lol!


I haven't been doing much quilting lately, however I've found a new craft to keep me busy and I'm liking it! Making cloth dolls. Yep. I have no idea how I landed here, but I am happy as a frog on a lily pad with a tummy full....lol! I am totally into it.  Who would have thought?  I've posted a couple of pics....by no means am I an expert and my girls are not perfect, but I am really proud of them. Drawing the face is a real challenge.  I have to work really hard at it because I'm not an artist. (as far as drawing is concerned) Anyway, introducing Shaniqua A. Jones & Jessica Strong. Enjoy!




or DollMan....naaaaaw, I don't like that! lmbo!

Shaniqua looks like she has a very confident personality.  Like she is saying "You better hear what I'm sayin'!"

I enjoyed looking at your quilts on your page.  I love the fact that you made pillowcases to match some of them.  I have only made pillow cases for one...the quilt I helped my daughter make for her father..she wanted pillow cases made to match.  I piece most of mine by hand and by the time I finish hand quilting them, I'm tired of looking at the fabric and I'm off to the next project....LOL  Sometimes off to the next project, well, most of the time, off to the next project before I finish one...that's why I have so many UFO's.

Good for you on going back to school.  My hat's off to anyone who has a desire to teach.  To me that is not an easy job....for alot of reasons.

The dolls are interesting...I think I like Shaniqua the best.

Good for you!  Both on going back to school and for finding your passion in the doll making. Looks like you are doing great!

Congrats on going back to school...we have several teachers in our family. Love the dolls...they draw you in. I think there's a market for them. But...making them for fun or a business is a very big step! Good luck with continuing your schooling and art!

Just perused your posted photos. Quite a nice grouping of various techniques. Well done, I might say. Making dolls is a diversion from the monotony of quilting. I've made a few also along my quilting journey. Good luck with them. Very folksy. Have you been aware of the Gees Bend Quilts in Alabama? If you can, do look them up on line. They were featured in the program "Why Quilts Matter" episode #5 I believe. You might be surprised at the similarity of your quilts in comparison to theirs. Good luck with your creativity. I enjoyed reading about you on CT.
