    I made a doll quilt for January out of the hummingbird fabric and had lots left over, so I made this little one for my mom. (Now she cannot complain that I never give her a quilt!) :wink:

    I kinda messed up on the bindings. I am lousy at that. I always seem to have problems at the corner, no matter how many times I do it. I even have taken a class to get better, to little avail. The bottom one, I really struggled with. I guess practice, practice, practice. That is one of the nice things about doll quilts. They provide good practice.

    Try the many tutorials on YouTube and Missouri Star Quilt Shop. There are some wonderful tips there....BTW, yours are not really all that bad, anyway! And the quilts are darling!
