Blogger's Quilt Festival - Doll Quilt Entry
I have done a lot of doll quilts with the Monthly Doll Quilt Swap Group, so it was hard to pick one. I really enjoy this group and offers inspiration to try some new techniques with a little project. This particular month's theme was 'Shape Shifters' - use a non-traditional shape/size to make your quilt.
This mini Cathedral Window quilt was made using the cirlce template method. Here is a tutorial on YouTube to help explain:
My template was one of my dinner plates and I made a cardboard square template for the centers. Simply using up some left-over layer cakes, flannel was used for batt, some button fun and I always make a little dollie to match the quilt - dressed with scraps from the quilt. Finished size - 18" square
You get a nicely pieced and quilted back with this technique, too. And my signature doll quilt label is made using Aida cloth, DMC floss and a little button.
Please be sure to visit Amy's Creative Side and view all the entrants. There are several catagories - maybe you have a quilt to enter!
