Doll quilt swap #2 - teaser


As you know, I'm pretty stoked to participate in the next round of doll quilt swappin'.

Doll Quilt Swap


The above is a little teaser of the center block I'm working on for the project. I know you aren't supposed to show the entire thing so that it's a surprise and all that good stuff...so this is just a tease.

I'm going for a vintage retro feel that my partner really likes. I hope that she enjoys the final product.

You know I just cannot resist doing a bunch of hand work, and applique is my addiction...so I guess no surprise what techniques I'm using.

Dropping my idea of using Japanese fabrics in order to fit the request of my partner, but I think that it will really look cool. The pattern itself is from the cover of a Japanese book, Patchwork Lesson #9.

Oh, and to answer your question on the cathedral windows...yes, of course they are by hand! Quilt Otaku would settle for nothing less! ;)

So exciting.

It would have been nice to swap doll-quilts but I didn't sign me in so.....
Follow your creation with joy.

Your doll quilt tease looks great! So far all of your posts have a link for me to go somewhere to buy something. You're a regular saleswoman here!
