It has been a complicated week in the Hitty cupboard – and we’ve had very stormy weather! Floradora and Henrietta were very glad to get outside to breathe some fresh air. They thought they’d look for mushrooms, but…
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.
