I participated in two different doll quilt swaps on the internet...from different sites...and produced these two quilts:



This one was for my sister (how cool is that? I got her name!) She loves pinwheels and I chose colors that are prevalent in her sewing room/family room (same room). The blocks are 4" so the pinwheels are 2"



this is a stack and whack that I had to do a lot of math on to shrink it down (the blocks are 2 1/2") to doll quilt size.

enjoy!

Really pretty!  You must have the patience of a freakin' saint to do such tiny items though!!!  I mean, I quilt... but not so tiny!

I love pinwheels in quilts (so hypnotic Grin) so the first quilt is definitely my favorite, but they're both very pretty. I wonder though, if you don't have dolls or small pets, what can you do with a doll quilt? I would love to make these for practice, I'm just afraid of having no purpose for it when I'm done. It's such a waste. Cry

both are lovely quilts.

You can turn your small quilt into a pillowcase for example

Wall quilts!  Nothing like instant art on your walls, that NO ONE else has!

wall quilts, for sure! My daughters are past the age of dolls so when I get a "doll" quilt, it is all for ME!

I plan to have a wall decorated with lovely, little quilts...when I get to move my sewing out of the basement! They will inspire me to make beautiful quilts.

One nice thing about little quilts is that they don't take as much time...
