I recently signed up for my first doll quilt swap organised by Leona. I was pretty excited considering the main requirement was the use of any ‘Denyse Schmidt Quilts’ fabric ranges released via Joanns and Spotlight.
At the moment I love star quilts! I hadn’t even finished my doll quilt when this little beauty came in the post from my talented swap partner Emma.
Emma foundation pieced these tiny little 4″ stars and machine quilted tiny stars all over. It’s amazing! Thanks Emma!
As for my doll quilt, my secret partner was my crafty friend Sheridan. It took me a while to determine which style I would make, but finally decided on japanese folded blocks. Each block is a circle of fabric folded over a padded square, then hand quilted.
Here’s the back…the quilt is kinda reversible!
What’s a swap without extra goodies? I used the pattern from ‘I love patchwork’ to make this pincushion. This book is fantastic and fullof cute projects.
