Doll Quilt #2

I knew I was right to get cracking - the sign up for the Doll Quilt Swap has had to end early, due to the sheer number of people wanting to join up.




On the home front, the scraps are now transformed into... this layout. I string-pieced the scraps for the sashing and fused and machine zig-zagged the flowers. I'm hoping it'll piece together okay as there are a lot of seams in the sashing which could be bulky when it's all sewn up, but so far so good. I have, of course, got a lot of scraps left so I maybe see another Chinese Coin Doll Quilt on the horizon (get a grip, girl, you haven't finished this one yet). With a border, it should measure 18 X 22 inches.

Oh, pretty! I think it will sew up fine as long as everything ironed to within an inch of it's life :o)

Love the colors.

What a fun quilt - the colors just sing with such a happy, joyful song. I love absolutely everything about it! The flowers are so folky and free - they go with the rest of it perfectly. What a lucky lady she will be - whoever gets this quilt from you.

You have a very good reason to put your other projects on the side if it is to come up with such a lovely result. It is cheerful, so bright like a summer field and makes me want to start making one just like that straight away! Not that I don´t have other projects either! Take care.
