With Purple : :

Today I ship out the biggest box I could find filled to the brim with weeks worth of secret project making, so much hard work, and most of all excitement & pride. I can't wait to be able to share more with all of you very soon! There's such a wonderful release that comes after checking that final task off a lengthy to-do list. This one called for some celebrating, and insanely enough for me that means more sewing! Well, some carefree sewing for one of my very favorite little people, my niece Sylvia who LOVES her some purple! During a FaceTime chat, with her expert taste & guidance, I pulled a new collection of fabrics from my stash to make her a little baby doll quilt with just enough purple to gain her approval. I promised that if she had her Mama check this blog today when she woke up (Hawaii time) I'd have pictures waiting here to show her. So here I am today, sharing my newest baby doll quilt, with purple!

For more doll quilt making! ✨

Since I don't really have many purple prints in my stash, a lavender binding and purple backing fabric was key!

Just like the first, I made this doll quilt in a sleeping bag style to fit one or two dolls comfortably!

Doll Quilt for two!

Besides being super cute and an enjoyable sew, these doll quilts make great practice for new patchwork ideas. I think this design is destined to become a larger quilt, soon!

Happy sewing! ♡ Maureen

p.s. I love you, Sylvia!

  11. My six year old finished her first quilt in July and is starting her 2nd quilt. This baby doll sleeping bag quilt would be such a fun project for her. Any tutorial on sizing and final putting it together?
