Doll Quilt Swap

I finally finished this doll quilt a few nights ago.  It is for a swap I am participating in.  I had a hard time figuring out what pattern to do.  I started with something and ended up with something totally different.  I just kinda played around with my squares and these diagonal lines happened and I liked it.  My recipient likes browns and greens, hope she likes it.  It measures a bit bigger than I had anticipated at the beginning but that is what happens when plans go out the window 🙂  It measures about 24″x27″.  I pieced the backing as I find myself doing with every quilt these days.  I love how it is a little surprise on the back and also allows me a fun way to incorporate my label.  I used Kona Solids in cream and the batting is Warm And Natural.  The binding is this fabulous find from Joann fabrics of all places.  It is the same that I used to back the coin quilt a few posts back.  I quilted in vertical lines 1″ apart.




Other things I am working on are a few custom orders, gathering fabrics for Sweet Girl’s and Little Man’s quilts and gathering the last bits of Flea Market Fancy that I don’t have for the memorial quilt.

Oh, I need ideas for baby booties for my little guy.  If you have any cute ideas or know of some patterns, shoot them my way! 🙂
