DQS 11 Completed
I finished up my doll quilt swap quilt. It measures just 12" square, each block finishing at 3" It's an alternating pattern of churn dash blocks (a request from my partner) and chimney and cornerstone blocks (my addition). I found the inspiration in this Amish quilt. I was fond of the design but not the colors. I wanted a more modern look and to incorporate several of the colors on my partner's wish list.
I settled on diagonal lines through the centers of each block for quilting.
I used some Castle Towers in Turquoise from 1001 Peeps by Lizzy House for a touch of whimsy on the back. The binding is Kona Pepper to help make the little diagonal lines of squares pop. All it needs now is a label and then to wait for mailing day! I hope my partner likes it.
