We’re moving into the final part of my doll quilt saga, at least for now. 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. My guild gave out little bundles to be assembled by the members.
I picked up a bundle based on this cute fabric:
Don’t you love it? The cats are adorable.
I was delighted to open up my bundle and see this:
This is one of the quilt tops I had made and donated over the summer. I was so excited to get it back, and I love the way the green cat fabric they chose for the border and backing. It matches so well.
The kit came with strips for the border, which I sewed to the edges:
I used the same method to assemble this doll quilt as the previous one. I layered the batting, then the backing facing up, and then the top face down. Then I pinned and sewed around the edges, leaving an opening, and afterward I turned it right side out.
I sewed the opening closed with matching thread.
Next week: the quilting!
