Fun With Doilies!

I'm always looking for new ways to use our "old" stuff. Joanie Sinclair from Milpitas, California sent me these great pictures of what she did. These aren't "old" doilies but rather, in her words "...are cheap and bought from a Dollar Store".

Joanie also said "I could never gather enough old ones to make it. I just loved the idea. I think they make such a pretty quilt and they look good on a table too. They are cut in half and then just sewn in the center seams of the half square triangles (the yellow and orange), then tacked down. The fans are cut into 1/4 then sewn in with the sashing on two sides".

Thank you Joanie for sharing your inspirations with all of us!
