Today I visited my younger sister, Mary, and I borrowed a couple of quilts I made for her so I could take some photos. This doll quilt was made in 2003, only a few of years into my obsession with vintage fabrics. It’s not a difficult pattern — just a simple nine patch. My favorite part is the Baptist fan quilting. I had always wanted to use this fan pattern, but I was a little uncomfortable using a quilting pattern that had no relationship to the piecing. Of course, it’s a wonderful pattern that works with just about every quilt pattern, and I realize that now.
