Are You Ready for Some More Quilts?

Doll Quilt Swap 2 - Sent

I’ve got two to show today. First up is the quilt I sent to Jhoanna as part of the Doll Quilt Swap II. She left it up to me as to what to send her. I found these fabrics designed by Joel Dewberry and then was inspired by a post on Amy Karol‘s blog. I loved making all those french knots.

Quilt number two is the gorgeous doll quilt I received from Jenni as part of the same swap:

I think she was worried I wouldn’t like it but I love it. I am always amazed with triangles in quilts — they are really finicky to do — and all of Jenni’s are lined up beautifully. I love the civil war reproduction feel of it and I can’t get over the little touch of lavender in the fabrics. For some reason that just makes it for me.

    Aren’t these little quilts addictive? These two are gorgeous. Lucky you (and lucky swap partner!)

    I love doll quilts. The little dots of french knots are just adorable.

    Lovely quilts….doll quilts seem like a nice way to get into quilting as they aren’t too big but you can still do so much as evidenced by htese 2 beauties. Thanks for sharing!

    The quilts are fantastic! I love the turquoise “buttons” on your quilt!

    Both are so beautiful and artistic. A doll quilt seems a great way to try a new pattern.

    These are beautiful! When you make these doll quilts, what size are they? I would like to do some quilting and these little ones seem like a good place to start. 🙂

    I absolutely LOVE the colors in the quilt you made ~ well I LOVE the little quilt itself too! I’m so glad a friend sent a link to this site. I enjoy handsewing and handquilting(on a small scale!) ~ actually I enjoy any kind of handwork. The doll bed in the previous post is wonderful as well.
