Doll quilt swap #2 - teaser
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! ;)
