I've finished two more little quilts. They are the 3rd and 4th in my 'series' of doll quilts being made from a vintage 'Bricks' top (shown below). Both are hand quilted.
|#4 Four Patch|
16" x 17.5"
I use only vintage fabrics from this top in creating the doll sized tops. I use other vintage fabric from my collection for backing and binding when I have it. The claret binding on the triangles is vintage but I used a period shirting reproduction for the binding on the 4 Patch. (both thanks to the generosity of AZ pal, Lynn)
If you've been reading my blog you will be familiar with this project but since it gets to be a long time between posts here again are the first two in the Bricks Series:
I love to study old quilts and note the different ways things are done so I consciously use a variety of techniques in my doll quilts just for fun.
#1 is a charm quilt - each shape a different fabric - and is hand pieced.
#2 I brought the backing to the front to finish the edge, a finish seen on many old quilts but not common today.
Numerous past blogs give more details on each quilt -You can use the Search box or drop down of each month to read those.
I'm planning Log Cabin and Rail Fence for #'s 5 and 6.
Next: "Hand" quilt update
