Finish It Up Friday ~ Doll Quilt Swap

Now that my partner from the Humble Quilts doll quilt swap has received her  little quilt from me, I can share it with you here! If you recall, I started with these little 4 patches.img_3528
I played with several designs. img_3531

But settled on this medallion.

 I found this print for the border when I was out in Arizona. I love it!
 And of course, I had to quit it in Baptist fans. These are about 4 inches high and I used mono-poly thread so you would see the texture rather than the thread itself. These first two pictures are before washing.


And here are the pictures after washing. The texture really showed up well in the morning sun.
But the colors were quite washed out. These colors are more true.

 

 I wanted to send a little extra along as well, so I made this little mug rug.

I really enjoyed playing in my scraps and coming up with this design for Louise. Thanks to Lori for hosting a great swap!

Don’t forget to add your comment to Wednesday’s post if you want to be in the running for the UFO giveaway. I will draw a name from the comments tomorrow morning.

    Great doll quilt for the swap! My top is finished, but I need to quilt it. Your Baptist fans are a great idea. Do you freehand yours or use a template? They look perfectly spaced. Beautiful little quilt.
