Busily at work on the scrappy doll quilt challenge. Here’s the foundation with the patches sewn on and the rows ready to join.
The foundation with a couple rows sewn together:
Paper off! Ready for the borders now.
So far I am just loving how this is coming out. I’m so pleased with my decision to play with this scrap pile. I had sort of forgotten just how much I like stripes and plaids!
Here’s a picture (not a very good one, I’m afraid) of the first quilt I made using stripes and plaids. This was the second bed size quilt that I finished. I hand quilted this one. I so rarely hand quilt anymore. I don’t really have the patience but I have to admit, there is still something that strikes me as special about the ones that are. We slept on a double bed in those days – now that we have a queen, this sort of downgraded to a bed topper. It’s been well worn for a long time now. It’s terribly faded but it’s also so soft and comfortable.
Don’t you love it when a quilt gets well used?
