hi, i just wanted to throw some pics up & get some feedback. i am workuilts that can be used as wall hangings or doll quilts or table runners.
tell me what you think and if you have any suggestions as to what people might buy, i would love to hear them.
my taste & what "normal" people like are sometimes quite divergent...lol

and if anybody can tell me (in small, one-sylable words how to post a pic here, I'd be ever so grateful!)

I like the cups they are cute. I think earth tones are always a good bet. Also using fabric collections I think are beautiful. Myself I like rainbows but I don't know how many others like that bright of colors. This quilt is beautiful I don't think you will have a problem.

If you want something bad enough the entire universe will conspire to help you get it.

That looks great - I really like it!  One thought - I don't think quilts with coffee-cups on them would be used as doll-quilts by most little girls, but definitely as table-runners or wall-hangings!  And for a table-runner, I think you'd want them longer.  If you're going for a one-size-fits-all purposes, then I'd go a little bigger than your standard doll quilt - girls would still use them for dolls, they could be kind of a centerpiece for a table, and would still be good as a wall-hanging.  Just my 2 cents.  But I love the one you posted a pic of, as-is!

first of all, thanks for the feedback...i really do need all the input i can get!!!
anyway, the table runners are 34" long so they would work. i also thought that putting flat casings on the back would work better because they would lie flat if needed.
here are a couple more i have finished.

these are 22" square and more universal fabrics.
i am working on two bethlehem stars right now...one with a food theme & the other with floral. the center where all the points meet is giving me fits but i think i may be getting it together!
i am just happy to be able to putter around with this & have someplace to get ideas & feedback. i don't know anyone that quilts or sews so this is a great opportunity for me...and again thanks for the suggestions
