InstructionsI started with 5" squares for this and cut them in half for the purple border.
Type of item: Toy
Style: Casual, Cute, Classic, Whimsical, Traditional, Funky
What was your inspiration?
Practice. I wanted to do a couple of doll quilts for my g-daughters before I quilt and bind a couple of larger tops that I've made. I also wanted to practice doing quilts "on point". My point aren't perfect but I love this little quilt.
What are you most proud of?
I quilted this on the diagonal and then quilted motifs within the lighter squares. It's not perfect but I'm happy with it.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I used "steam a seam2" iron-on 1/4 in. adhesive to hold down the back of the binding before "stitching in the ditch". I cut the binding 2 1/4" then folded it in half so that when turning to the back it's a finished edge, this is much easier that having to iron up seam allowances. Allso no need to cut your binding "on the bias" because these are straight edges.
