Thanks to my new W.i.P. Tracker, I finished this little doll quilt.
After organizing and prioritizing my unfinished projects, I found this one was near the top of the list.
When I started this quilt many moons ago, it was to be a wall hanging for my daughter’s room. But when I picked it up last week, it begged to be a doll quilt. I think it wants to hang out with Emma.
I was inspired by the Red Riding Hood quilt designed by Kerri Horsley in the Pretty in Patchwork Doll Quilts book by Cathy Gaubert. Instead of embroidery, I fussy cut a print from The Woodlands collection by Khristian Howell. I also added a border to the top and bottom of the quilt to make it into a rectangle.
I quilted the center with stippling and outlined the blades.
For the background of the quilt, I echoed the blades using straight lines that alternated between 1/4″ and 1/2″ apart. I like the effect the echoing gives in repeating the shape formed by the blades. It reminds me of ripples.
There’s something satisfying about getting a long awaited W.i.P. finished.
Now for the next W.i.P. in line…
