doll quilt

Filed under: carmen, crafts, projects, quilting — Jana @ 1:20 pm

I had just enough scraps left over from the mermaid quilt I made for my sister to make Carmen a little doll quilt.

It was way more fun than making a big quilt because it was so fast and easy that it was an instant gratification kind of project.  It was also fun because it was small enough that I could make my own freehand  ocean waves when I  quilted it, which was a nice change from the straight lines I have been stuck doing so far.

I love seeing the kids fall in love with stuff I have made.  As soon as I gave it to Carmen, she laid it out on the floor to look at it and Moseley laid down on it all cozy like, which also made Carmen want to lay on it,  and before you know it they were both vying for a spot to lay on the tiny quilt.   I guess it’s time to make him his own quilt too.

  3. I tried to leave you a comment twice earlier but stupid wordpress wouldn’t cooperate. So I’ll say again that I love this cute quilt, the waves, and that your kids loved it like they should! I made Wren a doll quilt once and was so excited to give it to her. When she woke up in the morning I brought it in and she told me, “I don’t want it”. Yeah.
