Doll Quilt Swap 7


Here's the doll quilt that I made for my secret partner. In her list of preferences, she said that she loves all colors (except purple) and that she studied fibers in art school. It sounds like an awesome field to study, doesn't it?






I based the quilt for her on these two pictures she favorite-ed in her flickr photostream: here and here. I used a combination of 2" and 4" mitered squares to come up with the quilt design. Four of the smaller blocks are equal to the size of one large block. 
The final quilt size is about 16" x 20".



For the backing, I used leftover mini squares from the front (these squares were cut to 1.5") and leftover fabric. I attached a "label" using this (adapted) method seen at Lady Harvatine last year.

I hope my partner likes it! It was a lot of fun to put together a quilt on this small scale!

  7. You know I was already composing a comment in my head before I got to the nice little shout out! Thank you so much for doing that.
    I absolutely love this design. I'm amazed at how varied and random it looks despite being only two blocks. You've balanced the colors perfectly!

  8. It's gorgeous little quilt! Love the design and the saturated color palette especially. I'm currently working (struggling) with a quilt using solids - I'm using some similar colors.

  12. Oh, I love this! And the back is just as stellar as the front! I'd have to find a way to hang it so that both sides could be displayed. VERY cool.
