hello darling doll quilt

Last fall I went to a quilt retreat, and my friend sitting across from me was making this beautiful quilt (added to my bucket list)




I watched as stacks and stacks of little triangles were being disposed of (I think it was the other 1/2 of the corners sewed into the white squares)


well, I grabbed all those triangles, and bartered for some of the other left-overs and started sewing till I came up with . . .

THIS!!
It's not the fastest way to put together a quilt, but there's something about using free scraps and creating something pretty with it that someone will adore that is very therapeutic to me.

stats:
21 x 28 washed
fabric is hello darling by bonnie and camille
binding is chenille

Tutorial on the chenille border found here.



Delivered. Loved.
(perfect gift with cradle for a 2 year old grand daughter . . . guaranteed to put you on top :)

  7. Such a pretty little quilt! I always stitch two lines when I'm sewing those corner triangeles - then when I cut them off, the HST is already made! I toss them in a little bag and pull them out when I've got enough for a small quilt or border. Whoop whoop for your pretty finish!
