The doilies are going to the first person who emailed me – did you notice I said email, not comment.

The quilt blocks are the Disappearing Four Patch – all directions can be found online under that title.

Hi, Lori – how’s your mom?

What do you do with the doilies? I have several that were made for us when we got married.


CountryThreads February 26, 2018 at 3:13 pm

Danna – I don’t know what to do with them so I’m giving them to a reader who makes art quilts with them.

I put my doilies under candles, little kitties, vases, etc. They do add a touch of class;)

I want to make a sheep using the dollie as the center! I e-mailed, but there is so much to do with dollies!

Thanks so much Mary for the pattern name. Familiar with the Disappearing Nine Patch and did not know there was also a Disappearing Four Patch. Going to try it. Stay warm and snuggle little Hazel for me.

I use the doilies as a collar for “Annie” ornament made with glass ball. It’s perfect. I’m sure tho I’m too late tho but thanks for offering them to us. I use under things also. Cute!

Mary, are you still grinding up all that stuff to make dog and cat food?


CountryThreads February 26, 2018 at 6:51 pm

Betty – yes, I am

Good 😊 for you keeping us on our toes, email not comment this time.

My grandmother used doilies and dresser scarfs as did my mother.

I wanted to say me me send one to me but then I remembered I have doilies and dresser scarfs from my mother that I don’t use because I don’t like to wash and care for them

Hi Mary,
I am glad I got on your site again. It has been almost 3 years since I moved away from Garner.
I have used my mother’s doilies for bibs on bears I make out of old quilt tops and also put the round dainty ones on their tummies. They are also under lamps, pictures and other decor.
