Doll quilts

Over the long weekend I finished two doll quilt + pillow sets for my nieces' birthdays. This pink and blue set is for my niece who just turned one. It matches the crib quilt I made for her a year ago using my Two Carat quilt pattern.

2015-07-07 10.25.58I shrunk the pattern down to 33%, so the finished size is just over 12" x 16". I did a little improv piecing for a 3" x 4.5" pillow.

This set, made with the Cotton and Steel fat quarters I won from Red Pepper Quilts and Miss Matatabi, is for my soon-to-be-three niece. I added a couple prints from Mona Luna and Cloud 9 because I thought it needed more mustard yellow. This one measures in at about 13" x 18". 20150704_090259-1

Both sets are happily at home with their new owners now.

Happy 4th!

I hope everyone in the US is having a safe and happy holiday weekend!

Happy 4th! I used a Wild Olive free pattern to make a small holiday banner.

 

I made this patriotic banner using a free pattern from Wild Olive and a scrap of linen. To hang it, I whip-stitched a length of bamboo skewer to the back.
