Doll Quilt Swap 2

I sent off my second doll quilt for Christine's doll quilt swap this week. My partner was Christine (a different one!) and you can check her out here. I decided to make it from half square triangles, (I'm sure I owe that to you Katherine!) and whilst it's not perfect, I was pretty happy with how it turned out. The squares are 1" and the borders around the quilt are 1/2" wide.

As you can see, I remembered to photograph it this time! (I felt really smart.) I used a charm pack to make the quilt. I had never considered doing that before for a doll quilt, but was really pleased with the result. It looks very scrappy and has lots of different fabrics in it, a look I adore. It meant I had to piece the back, but that's a look I love too! So all round I pretty much loved, loved, loved this quilt right up until the moment I sent it to Christine. She has received it and likes it too. Mine will be here next week and I am intrigued as to what it will be like!

Wow Kris-thats a work of art! Just beautiful. I love waiting for surprise mail. Im sure you'll be thrilled!

Working with fabric pieces that small would drive me insane (Yes -I may have developed stitching skills but Im still working on patience !)

What a lovely little quilt. I have never attempted anything so tiny, and am awed. I'm sure that it will be treasured.
