So last night, I put on some Christmas music! (Pandora station: Alvin and the Chipmunks--yeah I'm classy like that! ;) My second favorite station is Harry Connick Junior) I got a bunch of colorful pinks, florals, and blues together and started sewing up this cute and very tiny Doll Quilt.
I cut all the squares 2.5" and started sewing, while listening to my favorite Christmas tunes and snacking on some chocolate! It was so relaxing and I loved working with all these cute prints. I have lots of fun prints in there: some cute cherry prints to polkadots and everything in between. The scrappier the better, in my opinion!
I slapped on a blue gingham border and binded it with some red polkadots. I have to say this is the cutest little quilt, and I know my girl's are will love it!
|Finished Quilt Size: 15" x 19"|
Now, let me show you how I made this!
48 - 2.5" squares
1/4 yard for border (Cut 2" strips)
1/4 yard for binding (Cut 2.5" strips)
1 fat quarter for backing
Step 1: Cut out all your squares:
Step 2: Sew them together in a 6 x 8 layout: ( I added a cute little heart to one of my squares, just for fun, I thought my little girls would like it!)
Step 3: Add your borders. Sew a 2" x length of quilt to each side. Then sew a 2" x width of quilt to the top and bottom.
Step 4: Baste, quilt, and bind!
So easy, and so cute! :) I am pretty sure I want a lap size quilt in all these fun colors and prints! I love how scrappy it is, and I know my girls will absolutely love their new doll quilts!
I'm off to make another one!
Talk to you soon,
