A very small quilt for a dolly

Dolly models quilt

Being frustrated that I had months of work left ahead of me before I could start piecing my patchwork blocks together, I was impatient to get a sense of how they might look when they were part of a quilt.

Actually, I haven’t succeeded in achieving my desire to find out how my quilt will look.

This ‘quilt’ is very small indeed (in fact, it’s more of a squished cushion) and certainly does not show me that magic thing about patchwork – the merging of hundreds of separate shapes into one glorious whole.

Ho hum. At least my son’s dolly is a little warmer and he can have the joy that I will have to wait a little longer for: cuddling up with a quilt.

  1. Good gosh! Not only quilt making but blogging too! Ancient and modern all in one. Hope your pieces are ‘all in one’ soon. Loved the boy’s comment about sandwiches.

    • He is quite fascinated by all the patches everywhere. And he’s very good about them encroaching into his play area. One of his mantras is, “not touch mummy’s sewing sheen”.

  2. Hiya Ruth welcome to blogging! I have a blog as well! Actually I’m thinking about learning to sew but a quilt is far off for me, im probably at the sew a button on stage. lol Sian x

    • Oh, you must! Sew sew sew! You’ll pick it up easily again. Didn’t we do some sewing a long time ago in a Textiles class together once? I remember making felt and LOOKING at sewing machines at school, although I can’t remember whether we actually used them. Let me know if you need any tips or suggestions of projects to get you going. x
