The deadline is coming up to get the doll quilt I made for DQS10 out the door and on its way. I realized that I couldn’t put off quilting it any longer. I have known how I want to quilt it but I’ve been nervous about actually doing it.
So tonight I pieced the back, found a piece of batting the right size, sandwiched my quilt, and got it all pinned. Then I took a deep breath and went for it.
I quilted it with gray thread which I think looks nice with all the colors. I got the flow of it partway through. The thing I love most is that it all blends and you can’t see that I wasn’t confident in the beginning.
I never did quilt my big version. I wanted to do something very similar to this but I’ve kept putting it off not wanting to ruin it. Quilting this little mini version made me realize that I can do it and should do it soon.
I really like the back with the rainbow of colors across it.
It measures about 19”x22”. I just need to bind it and collect a few goodies to send with it. I really hope my partner likes it. Fingers crossed!
