A few weeks ago I was asked to make a little dolly quilt from a Moda kit using Seaside Rose fabric.
This fabric was available about 5 years ago, and it's so pretty, floral and vintage. So it really was special to use because it's now very difficult to get hold of.
The kit came with a pattern and instructions to follow; as you can see, lots of half square triangles, sashing and little yellow cornerstones.
I was asked to add the letter 'L' in one of the corners, the initial of her daughter. After some debate and fabric auditions, I opted for this yellow/green print and I outlined it in a contrasting pink.
I chose to hand quilt it, with a light cross hatching that intersected the triangles. Any excuse to use my Anchor number 8 perle cotton, and even better it was pink!
So I think Dolly is going to be very lucky to snuggle under this vintage Moda quilt :-)
And I hope that the little girl whiles away many an afternoon playing with her dolls, in her imaginary wonderful land.
