Quilt update!

Well, I finished my first dollhouse quilt. Even with using the sewing machine, it was quite the venture. In fact, using a sewing machine probably upped the difficulty level a bit, since I had a 1/8" seam allowance. Hmmm. I might just make those pieces wider next time. ;)

Anyway, here is how it turned out.

The top of the quilt. I am pretty happy with this. The binding is a bit too wide, so I will definitely change that for the next quilt (and there will be a next quilt!)

This is the back. I'm not crazy about it, but I had LOTS of this fabric in my stash and wanted to use it. My sewing machine was being a pain too, so the stitches were less than awesome on this side. I still need to trim some stray threads.

This is how it looks on a bed. It fits a dollhouse scale full bed.
It does look good on the bed, so I am pretty happy with that! This quilt is one I will keep, but I will hopefully be designing and making some more for the shop once I get a good method down. :-)

Lessons learned:
1) Hand sewing may actually be better for tiny stitches.
2) Skinny binding will look better in this scale. (And maybe darker for this particular quilt, though I like it when it's on the bed.)
3) Patience is required!
4) I can make tiny quilts! :-D


  1. It's wonderful!

  3. What a test of patience, great job!

  4. Hello Linda,
    I think it looks perfect on the bed. The illusion is perfect.
    Big hug,

  5. Excellent work Linda! The quilt is quite lovely. I would love to have one and am happy to arrange a swap if you are interested. Happy honeymooning...

    1. I would love to do a swap with you! What kind of quilt would you like? African (like the one above)? Or a random patchwork of various fabrics? My email is lindasminis@gmail.com.
