Dollhouse Quilt

You knew it was coming!

I made this little quilt with 1 1/2 inch cut squares.

This little die from Accuquilt worked a treat for this.

It started like this.

Then I turned it on point like I did the hourglass quilt.

I tried to keep the quilting simple so it wouldn’t get too stiff.

I used a one inch strip for the single fold binding.

Barb at Fun with Barb gave me this great tip. Using pins to keep the quilt shaped to the tiny bed. These are brass so they won’t rust.

And here is this room so far!

Have a great weekend!

    wonderful as always. i’m wondering if you have a formula for the first cut you make to make the quilt be ‘on point’? this is such a great tip. i figure the doll house will be covered in quilts before you are done. great job. patti in florida

    I love it, but I’m just curious – how is it that the back has more quilting than the front?
