Teddy and His New Quilt on the Porch


Here's the latest doll quilt I made.  It's patterned after a quilt in the book Childhood Treasures - Doll Quilts by and For Children, by Merikay Waldvogel.
See page 101 for the original quilt, which is 15 x 17.5 inches.





I used some thirties scraps and a scrappy look with no attention to dark/light triangle placement.  The border is newer fabric, and the binding is a small checked fabric.  It has a pleasant "busy" look to me, and the snippets of fabric are fun to see up close.  This quilt measures 13 x 15 inches.

  4. Love the little quilt and think I have that book on my shelf. I tried to reply to you after you left a comment on my blog, but you are set as a no-reply blogger. It was nice to meet you at the retreat, too, and hope you get to come back again.
