Finished Doll Quilt

Quilts

Having a quick finish to come home to work on after Quilt Festival was just what I needed to ease me back into sewing. It didn’t take long to put the binding on the doll quilt I made for my niece, and I figured the only way to photograph the finish was with the couple of stuffed animals I have in my home.

Tigger looks pretty cozy tucked in under the doll quilt. The top was pieced from a 42-piece mini charm pack of Chic Neutrals from Moda. The quilt finished at 12.5-inches by 14.5-inches.

I hand quilted the mini quilt using Aurifil embroidery floss #2430 (Antique Rose). I chose to use the embroidery floss because I had the sample on hand and other than that I had a lot of 50wt available, which I figured was too thin and light. I finished the mini with a fun black, white, and yellow stripe print that I stitched with my sewing machine.

I know my niece has a big imagination, and I hope she has as much fun imagining stories and fun with this doll quilt as I did.
