Liberty Collection - a Few Finishes and Quick Makes

No blogging for me for a while as, due to a friend's illness, I have been busy and occupied elsewhere for much of my time so I turned to small UFOs when ever I had a few spare minutes.
I made a doll quilt set from scraps of pastel Liberty Tana Lawn, my favourite fabric to stitch.
This little specimen is only 14ins x 16 ins approx) The squares are 2ins finished.

I found this quilt top and finished it successfully with cross hatch machine quilting. 
It measures approx 50ins x72ins

I hand stitched the hexagons for this little lap quilt over a couple of years during my travels. 

A few small quickly made items for my quilt group's forthcoming show.
Bright pot holders from scraps.
Round pochette style key holders.
and a few more cushions for the tombola.
Small makes when I need a bit of sewing relaxation therapy. It does it for me.

Dolly bed sets are quite fun to make, aren't they? I know you will have eager recipients for those, and, sorry about your friend, but at least you can get some bits and bats finished round the edges of looking after.
