Christmas Gift almost finished...Doll Quilt

Made this cute little doll quilt today. Took me about 2 hours from making the half-square triangles to getting the quilting done. I still need to pick a fabric to use for binding. I am thinking a light blue would be perfect to finish this off. 

Funny thing about this little quilt is I received a package of 2.5 in squares in the mail. These squares were in the package. They were calling to me to make something, and I did just that. This is 22x18 inches.  I just think this is adorable. 

This picture doesn't do the color justice. They are much brighter than this.

Tomorrow I will be getting the a back pieced for my fathers Crabapple Quilt (Bonnie Hunter). Don't know what happened, but the piece we purchased ended up being about a foot too short. I just cant imagine why it happened but it did, so now need to piece something into it to make it the right size.  Can't wait  to get that finished for Dad, especially since it is starting to get cold. 

Until tomorrow, dream quilty dreams.!

  1. Aww...what a cute little quilt. Dolls need quilts too. The blue will really make the border stand out. Nice job.
