little red and white doll quilt

Something different, not exactly Redwork though I added a few running stitches in red just like aviva_hadas suggested.


Doll Quilt

whipup


Inspired by the doll and miniature quilts of the doll quilt swap I created my own version. The progess with such a small quilt is amazing only two nights and all hand piecing, basting and the first quilting lines were finished. If only my other project would go so fast. Now I wished it would grow into a big quilt all by itself…..


My little doll quilt as a WIP after two nights.

I love your doll quilt--it's unique and there's something about the way red and white work together that appeals to my soul.

Hi!

I found your blog via a fellow quilter. Just wanted to let you know of a mini-quilt swap I am hosting. We'd love to have you if you are interested. The details are given at the blog link below. If it happens that you are not interested, I'd still appreciate if you could spread the word in the event some of your blog's readers might like to participate. Thanks!

I've been tentatively toying with the idea of making a quilt, nad have had a few attempts but never finished one successfully.

This, however, has inspired me - as has your redwork designs. I'm going to make a monochrome, appliqueed and embroidered mini quilt for display. And it will be fabulous, and it will all be thanks to you!
