This little doll quilt is 6 1/2 X 5 1/2 inches…the “Encyclopedia print” was bought new, but the colourful prints are definitely scraps!
A nearby historic house from the 1860’s makes various things out of these reproduction print fabrics, and they gave me a bag of scraps leftover from their projects, so that I could make them a small quilt for a china doll (I also dressed the doll in historic clothing) Click here for a link to Ross Bay Villa.
After making their larger doll quilt, I had scraps of scraps which I used to make three doll quilts for myself!
I wanted to show how I like to make a “fold-over” binding using the backing fabric.
First piece your top, square it up and then quilt the layers together (I don’t use any batting on a tiny quilt).
Then cut the backing fabric exactly 1/2 inch from the outside edge of the top.
