After finishing the quilting on the third quilt in a row last week, I was looking for some play time.
I dug into my Kate Spain Sunnyside scraps and worked on piecing a pair of doll quilts. Each quilt is 18" x 20" and are suitable for any 18" doll. I know the American Girl dolls are very popular. And up here in The Great White North, the Canadian girls I know all have Maplelea Girl dolls.
My 'little' girl is now 14 years old, and does not have any dolls. She actually never did like playing with dolls. So I don't have a pretty dolly to model these little quilts to show how they measure up.
While I was at it, I decided to make matching pillows for these quilts. And plan to post a little tutorial in case anyone is interested in how I made them. They have french seams, so they won't fray or have any loose threads!
The quilting was done using the serpentine stitch that comes on my Aunt Elna.
I used my favourite binding method to give those edges a little extra zing!
Each little quilt was made with a pieced backing and both are almost identical!
Sew what is new with you???
