I love to make doll quilts

I already made two doll quilts, maybe you remember them:

The Japanese heartquilt

The 30th reproduction dollquilt

This week I finished the (almost) civil war doll quilt, I also used some French General fabric.
It was machine pieced and both hand- and machine quilted. For me this was the first time that i quilted on my sewing machine. I saw some videos about machine quilting, practised a bit and here is the result; however not perfect at all, I am very proud!!!
I bought 5 (!) doll quilt books in the last three month, I 'll show them in another post.

i also finished the binding of my Orvieto leaf sampler.

6 opmerkingen:

  1. Great job with the machine quilting. I love doll quilts but haven't made one - it's on my to-do list.

  2. Ik vind alle quilts heel mooi, maar de hartjes vind ik het allermooist!
    Groetjes, Jonneke

  3. Zo zo, wat wordt er toch hard gewerkt, en allemaal even mooi. Groetjes Dorien

  4. Doll quilts are a wonderful idea. Love your work and colour choices.

  5. Oh its lovely! Gorgeous fabric. And love that unusual shape for the patches. Yes, I'd be proud too!

  6. All of your tiny doll quilts are so sweet. I looks like you did a lovely job with the quilting.
