Doll quilt

Finished!  One adorable little doll quilt.  I love this little thing.  I really do.  It was easy to sew, fun to hand quilt, and I suffered mightily with joining the binding.  I did it, but I could have done better.  And that's why little quilts are neat:  you get to try out lots of stuff without a huge investment of either money or time. 



 I used charm squares for the blocks.  Some fabric or other for the back and binding.  One of the corners looks a bit off, but it's not; it's just my photography.  Thermore batting.  I like how I can make small stitches with this batting, but I like the feel of cotton batting more.  No shrinkage on the batting; it's polyester, but the fabric shrank a bit all on its own, so now it looks nice and crinkly.

Here's the book:  40 Fabulous Quick-Cut Quilts by Evelyn Sloppy.  I borrowed it first from the library and fell in love with almost all the quilts.  The pattern I used is this:




  And it's really really easy.  Looks like lots of blocks on point and biased, but it's not.  I like it so much that I want to do it in a lap quilt and have collected a lot of fabric to use for it.

And now, like it or not, I have to clean house.  Tomorrow is the first seder; and they're all coming.  So, mop, dust cloth, and cleaning supplies, here I come.

This is SO cute! Doesn't seem to be too difficult when you break it down. Thanks for sharing.
