My Finished Doll Quilt

After mulling around ideas and brushing away my fears
here is what I came up with for the doll quilt swap.

A happy (Bright!) little churn dash quilt.
 The small scale blocks worked out so perfect!  Just what I had in mind.
My partner requested solids, as she had never made a solids only quilt before. 
That one was easy for me.  I love a good solid.
The color inspiration came from one of her mosaic pics.

Believe me when I say I am SO happy with how it turned out. 
My fears were unfounded, as they usually are...

I decided to hand quilt it (a first for me!).  
Again, so happy with how that worked.  
It's not perfect, but I got better with each stitch.
Dare I say it makes me want to hand quilt an entire quilt someday?!
In the end I knew it would be a tough one to give away, so...
I turned my bigger tester blocks into a quilt for me!
A little matcher to hang on my wall.
Win, win!

And now, I am officially DONE with this project.
Just waiting on my doll quilt to arrive!
Oh, the anticipation...

  1. A happy ending to a sweet quilt story! I love my little churn dash so very much :o) I'm glad you made one for yourself to keep as this is such a classic little mini. I'd never have guessed that this is the first time you hand quilted. Isn't the perle cotton nice to work with? Thanks again, Emily, for putting so much thought and beautiful work into the quilt you made me.
