Yesterday I made this doll quilt for my friend, Barbara, at Oodles and Oodles. Last month she sent me a box of cute vintage scraps which I assigned to several different quilt projects. A little doll quilt seemed like a nice way to thank her, and I was just thinking about the colors when amazingly, she wrote a post about her favorite colors and pictured several vintage items as examples. The doll quilt was set in motion.
This Sawtooth pattern is from Gwen Marton’s Twenty Little Triangle Quilts (out of print, but still available from other sellers on Amazon). The prints are vintage 30s in Barbara’s favorite colors, and the top measures 16″ x 20″. This week I’ll do the hand quilting, and then it will be on its way to New York.
Update: I just finished tea-dying the top which toned down the white — it looks much better now. I’ll post another photo after it’s quilted.
