A Littlest Doll Quilt : :

Littlest Doll Quilt

Working from the fat quarter bundle of Art Gallery Fabric's adorable nursery collection Littlest that I stashed quite sometime ago, I stitched up this mini/doll quilt Friday morning for my niece Josie's birthday gift.

I love mini quilts, but somehow have only made one other, my Valentine mini a couple years back.

This one began with a framed fussycut, adorable bunny duo from the Littlest main print, Furry Tales from the Into the Rose Woods colorway.

Next I used the Magic 8 Method for making speedy half-square triangles to create this sweet Sawtooth star block for the center for my quilt.

The rest came together quick! I finished with a large wavy quilting stitch and some yellow & white binding.

The back is finished with a fat quarter of my favorite Littlest's Magical Prairie Moon Panel, so super cute!

I'm quite happy with how this little doll quilt turned out, and so was the belated birthday girl. I'm really looking forward to making many more mini's!
