I was searching for fabrics to make a baby quilt for my nephew and I came across my first attempt at a postage stamp quilt.  I had gotten confused somewhere in the assembly process and decided I should do something a bit more basic for a postage stamp quilt.  When the quilt pieces resurfaced, thought it would make a great quilt for a baby poppet doll I'd made for my daughter for Christmas.  

I think the binding turned out a bit ripply because I didn't hand stich it.  (Does anyone else have that problem if they machine stitch their binding?)  I think the whole thing would have turned out better if I quilted it by hand, but I don't have a lot of time to do secret crafting.  My daughter is so sneeky/nosey!!!



(The finished quilt is roughly 13x15 inches. each little square is 1 inch.)

Mrsblocko- I think your little quilt is really pretty!!! Great choice of colors and pattern!

Geez! Who should care if handmade things are a little "bit ripply"?! That's what makes them home/hand made and not something from a machine. I used to stress out that the things I made weren't machine perfect. The process of making things "perfect" actually held me back from creativity. Then I remembered that there is a Native American tribe that purposely drops stitches and beads in things they make- a reminder that only the Great Spirit creates perfection.

Sometimes the little bit ripply is what gives things character!

Your daughter and her poppet doll should love it! Great work!  Smiley

I think it looks great.  I love the colors and the quilting looks really good.

Looking for postcards from anywhere to use for RSVP cards for my 8/2012 wedding.  Have 80/200.
