Straight Furrows Doll Quilt

Lori of Humblequilts.blogspot.com is having a doll quilt quiltalong, and gave instructions for "Mountain Trail". Here is my finished quilt, called Straight Furrows. It finished at  17.5 inches by 21.5 inches.  I made the blocks one round smaller than Lori's instructions.

I thought I'd take a picture of it with one of my fall pillows, since this felt cat pillow is very similar to the door hanger that Lori featured on her blog the day she gave instructions for the little quilt.  














I quilted it with "steps" up the mountain, and took a picture of the back to show you the machine quilting.  



I used bias cut binding, and used single fold, as it handles so well when it's used on a doll quilt. I also pressed most of the block seams open, but forgot to take a picture of that part.

I am looking forward to seeing the little quilts of everyone else who participated.  Thank you Lori for initiating this quiltalong.











When I bought the felt cat pillow years ago, I made a pumpkin pillow to go with it.  This one is not felt - just made from cotton scraps I had at the time. I didn't have a pattern, - just winged it.  These two pillows sure have toothy grins, don't they? 




Here is a final picture of the Straight Furrows Doll Quilt, and the happy doll who is going to enjoy sleeping under it.  Sweet dreams little one!

  6. Your doll quilt is so cute. I'd like a big one just like it! The plaid is perfect for the border/binding. Your pillows are cute, but a little scary. Wouldn't want to wake up in the dark with those teeth staring at me!
