My quilt guild collects doll quilts for the following charity: http://www.emergencydolldispatch.org/donate.html. They give dolls to children who’ve been abused and they like to give a quilt with each doll. It’s a very worthwhile cause.
This week I’ll cover the quilting of the doll quilt. I quilted it the same way I’d quilted my bedspread, with circles traced using a plate as a pattern.
As you can see, I made four circles, one at the center of each color block. I used white thread. I thought that would give me the cleanest look.
Here’s what the quilting looks like on the back:
The bottom right corner seems really puffy, which I guess means I did a poor job of pinning it flat, but that’s not unusual for me.
Next week we’ll have a change of pace from the doll quilts. I have a couple of in-progress quilts to post about, one for myself and one for a coworker.
