This little doll quilt is one I finished over the Easter weekend and donated to the Lincoln Quilters Guild for their live quilt auction fundraiser which will be held in conjunction with the every-other-year quilt show, May 18-20, 2012. The theme is “Let Your Sparkle Out!” http://www.lincolnquiltersguild.org.
The pattern is adapted from the Dream Doll Quilt pattern designed by Aneela Hoey of Sherbet Pips fame, and published in an incredible collection of 24 contemporary doll quilt patterns, Pretty in Patchwork Doll Quilts, Cathy Gaubert, ed. (Lark Crafts: 2011). http://www.amazon.com/Pretty-Patchwork-Quilts-Little-Stitch/dp/1600599249. I changed it up a bit, with only the teddy bear and a 9-patch rather than a 4-patch quilt for the tiny felt doll-sized teddy bear. I used a charm pack of Aneela Hoey’s AWalk in the Woods fabrics for most of the patchwork and the scrappy backing.
Aneela Hoey kindly granted me permission to use this little quilt for the auction. You can visit her blog at: http://comfortstitching.typepad.co.uk.
I am still working on a Seascape quilt which may or may not be finished by the May 1 quilt show entry deadline….If not, there’s always 2014.
