Doll Quilt Swap 11 Finished!
After a fair bit of stalking I tried to choose fabrics and colours my partner liked that I already had in my stash. I love using solids with prints and was able to find more saturated solid (or shot cotton) that co-ordinated with each print.
The blocks is called 'Night Vision' and each block is 6" finished. I really love this block, and will definitely use it again. I kind of wish I'd tried the smaller version - 3" finished but I just wasn't brave enough :)
After a lot of deliberation I decided to bind it in the same Kona bleached white as the background fabric so the blocks stand out.
Finished size is 18 1/2". I was going to wash it in the hope that it would shrink 1/2" to fit the size requirements of the swap, but I think I'll leave it to my partner to decide if she wants to wash it.
So there we have it, my first time in the DQS. I really really enjoyed maqking this little mini quilt. Just hope my partner likes it :)
Happy Wednesday and thanks for visiting :)
