That’s what Pinterest can be for me! And one trail leads to another, leads to another……
Anyway, I saw this doll quilt on Pinterest while drinking my morning coffee.
Yeah, I have no idea why the pin describes an office chair. One of the quirks of Pinterest! I decided I needed to try to recreate it with my vintage scraps. So I found a bin and started to dig.
I soon realized that I didn’t have much red so I would have to change the design.
I have no idea how big the original is; I just cut my squares for the 9 patch at 1 1/2 inches and went from there.
I still had to piece some pieces to make it work. I used Mountain Mist Blue Ribbon 100% cotton batting and a piece of feedsack for the backing. Then I quilted in a hanging diamonds pattern with the walking foot on my new Juki.
I hand washed this one and dried it in the dryer. Love the texture!
Here is a side by side comparison.
Definitely not the same, but it was still fun. And it looks good with my toy machine.
Now I suppose I should go get some housework done.
Have a great day!
