I wanted to make a doll quilt for a gift for a special little girl that is upcoming.
I thought I might use that elephant quilt I did recently but it really is too big for a doll quilt.
So back to the drawing board.
I seem to make a lot of crib sheets and burp cloths out of flannel.
I have been cutting the leftovers from all my flannel projects into usable squares.
I cut 6", 5", 3" and 2.5" squares.
For this doll quilt I decided to pull from this stash.
I mostly have 5" squares but thought those might be too big for what I wanted to do.
I started off with the 2.5" squares I had
then cut from the larger squares I had to make up the difference.
It was not quite big enough for me so I added a flannel border (also from scraps).
I pick up remnant pieces of minky/fleece when I find them
so had a nice yellow piece to use for the back.
I put batting scraps together for the inside too.
Then I quilted it in the ditch.
I had some leftover satin binding so used that up for the binding.
WIN-WIN for this cutie!
I think it turned out perfectly for a little doll quilt!
Now I want to use some of those 5" squares to make a few baby quilts.
I have so many other things already begun so I am going to try to refrain.
Do you find it hard not to get sidetracked when you are working on something too?
It's. So. Hard!
