Something Small

I have been wanting to make a quilt like this for sometime, but was never sure how to start. After I saw the doll quilt Nova made for the down under doll quilt I thought I MUST do it. She explained how she just went with it and encouraged me to give it a go.
I recently read a post on sillyboodilly's blog that had a small quilt made using patterned fabric, and I started thinking.....
What if you use a feature fabric then add other components like a design board. This idea grew. I have only used scraps for this project, except the main patterned fabric, it has a lot of feelings in this little quilt, almost like a little trip down memory lane. I plan to do more hand quilting on this, since I was so happy with the way my doll quilt turned out.
Happy sewing



  1. This is beautiful! It has so much movement and yet it's soft and pretty. It'll look wonderful with hand stitching.

  2. I'm a fan of the make it up as you go kinda quilt, they are super satisfying. Especially when you can use up all those scraps.
