First Post in my blog - making quilts from the book Small Endearments




This is the quilt that I made today.   I made a replica of a doll quilt from one of my favorite books of doll quilts - Small Endearments by Sandi Fox.  I copied the quilt on Page 157, plate 192.  After making the half square triangles to finish at 1 inch, I pressed all seams open from then on, as the blocks were so small.  The quilt measures 12.5 by 15 inches before binding, and in the book, it's 13.5 by 16 inches.

  3. oh ok our quilts are similar in size I thought you made it much smaller when I saw it on the doll dresser!
    I haven't opened up seams yet on my quilts but have been thinking about doing that
    I hear its much better for hand quilting.
