My Doll Quilt Swap – Quilt Top!


Posted on August 2nd, by Amy in Doll Quilt Swap, work in progress. 22 comments

Over the weekend, I had fun piecing this little gem!  I had been mulling over an idea for my Doll Quilt Swap quilt, and finally got to it!  Each block is finished at 4″, which means the overall quilt is 16″ x 16″, perfect doll quilt size.

Each block is paper pieced, an often intimidating skill, that doesn’t need to be!  Precision is a given, as long as you can follow the lines while sewing.   To help me out with color placement, I quickly used color pencils to remind me of the colors.  Otherwise I would have been a bit slower in the production phase, constantly checking my color placement.

Up next — removing all the papers, and finding the perfect way to quilt it, without over quilting.

Did you enter the giveaway yesterday?  There’s still time!  And Shawna has some great sales going on too!

Happy quilting~

Amy

  1. I love your doll quilt. I just wanted to share with you that I purchased a package of Manilla drawing paper from Hobby Lobby. You get 200 9X12 sheets for $4 I print off my paper piecing patterns on it and tearing off the papers is super easy. It literally falls off when your done.
