Surprise! Doll quilts are back!
As I mentioned a couple of months ago, my quilt guild is collecting doll quilts for Childhelp, a charity that gives dolls and teddy bears to children who’ve been abused. Here’s the link: http://www.emergencydolldispatch.org/donate.html.
I didn’t post this last time around because these leftover pieces are from a quilt that was a present and hadn’t been gifted yet. It has since been gifted (and will appear in upcoming posts), so now I’m ready to post it.
I used green, purple, and yellow fabrics. They’re leftover from a lone star quilt. The pieces I had leftover are each a yellow triangle sewn to a triangle made of purple and green stripes. I couldn’t decide whether I wanted to make a kind of hourglass with the yellow or if I wanted to make a diamond out of the purple and green stripes. See the hourglass layout below:
I finally decided on the diamond layout.
It’s very different, isn’t it? I like it.
