The Doll Quilt SAL: Show and Tell.....

I am so excited to be able to finally show you my finished doll quilt.  The doll quilt SAL was hosted by Katrin at Cattinka and has been a lot of fun.  Lots of lovely ladies took part and you can see all the beautiful doll quilts they made over at Katrin's blog HERE.




I used a pattern from the lovely book 'Red Home' by Natalie Bird.  It is such a cute little pattern and I couldn't be happier with the finished quilt.



I stitched all the embroideries using 'Running Postman' variegated thread by 'Cottage Garden Threads'.  The fabrics were a variety of reds and pinks from my stash.



I hope you like it as much as I do!  Here are a few more photographs of it with a cute Tilda Sweetheart Doll which was made for me by a Facebook friend a little while back.




Don't forget to pop across to Katrin's and see all the other beautiful doll quilts made in the sew-a-long... there are over forty of them!!!

  7. Christine you should be pleased - it's darling! It reminds me of a redwork quilt pattern I have been meaning to make for years - this is good inspiration. Your stitching is just beautiful.
    My Granny made me a doll quilt when I was 8, and I still have it!
