Doll Quilt Swap 10


Ok, this is my first brain storm for the Doll Quilt Swap 10 going on over on flickr.  I have a grand plan for the quilting, which will make the white space, not soooooooo white.  I'm not sure that this is the quilt that will make it to my partner.  My secret partner has some very specific requests, so I think if I post the final design- she'll totally figure out its hers.  But for now, lets just take a look at this little one.

Unfortunately, this quilt busts the size requirements by 1".  Its 18" x 25".  ((Hey Partner, is that a deal breaker???))  The color blocks are from a Kona Solids Charm pack.  Well, they are some scant leftovers from a charm pack- which I used for something else.  Each square is 2" square.  The white fabric is linen.

 With a little help from some of the ladies in the Wichita Modern Quilt Guild, I ended up machine quilting straight lines onto the design, and adding matching color DMC floss for additional hand quilting.  It has a neat effect.

 Last step is the binding- which I think will be white linen.  Stay tuned.

I can see why I've never entered a doll swap..there is no way I'd have the creative ability! Your little quiltlette is great! Love the hand quilted color splash! I could never think to do something like that....I'm envious!
