Doll Quilt Swap – Sent!

Hi there!  Here’s the final look at my Doll Quilt Swap

It measures 16″ overall, with each star measuring just 4 inches!  I used a variety of  green fabrics set off by Kona ash, and white.

On the back you can see my quilting a bit more.  I followed the lines I marked, and went around the center square a couple times to get all the “arms” of the windmill quilted.    I was so glad to see it come together so well!

I’m thinking up a larger version of this block/quilt – maybe it cold be a fun quilt along!?  Anyone want to practice paper piecing?  I need to get my kids back to school, but it might be a fun fall/winter project working with scraps.  What do you think?

Happy Quilting ~ Amy

    This is SO cool! I really love it. I love the colors you used, and the quilting really sets off those stars. I would love to make something like this, so a quilt-along sounds fun to me. I would be most interested in this smaller size. You have a lucky partner to receive this treasure!

    How cute! I love how you’ve alternated the points in your blocks – the illusion of motion…

    oh, I just LOVE the movement in this quilt! And your quilting was just perfect for it! Where did you find the pattern? I’d love to make a full size version (with a little bit bigger blocks I think though!)
