Doll House Patchwork Quilt



My daughters and I have enjoyed hours of fun decorating their doll's house. It has been a work in progress for the past 10 years. Just recently I came across some 1/4" hexagon pre cut cardboard templates and I knew straight away that I had to have them. I knew they would make an ideal quilt for the doll's house bed. My youngest daughter carefully selected the colours and I started sewing the tiny hexagons together. She was thrilled as she admired the progress each night. At first I found the little shaped pieces a bit tedious to hand sew together until I increased the seam allowance. Then the process was fun. I've included a picture of the end result for you. I also came across some other doll house quilts on flickr and have shared them here as well. I think my next project should be a needle punched floor mat. I'll let you know how it progresses.
Until next time. Happy patchworking!

Hi there, I don't know how but I stumbled over your site somehow!! I was wondering if you make your gorgeous minis quilts to sell? For dolls houses? I have never seen such lovely ones. Here is my email in case you wish to reply charlottechristou@hotmail.co.uk... If you don't sell them then please take this as a compliment. I make minis but not that minis up to super king sized but sadly my fingers can't cope with that size due to illness! Anyway, it's all lovely and hope you are very proud of yourself. Hugs .. Charlotte

Hi Charlotte, Thanks for your kind words and inquiry, however I do not make mini quilts for sale, this one was a labour of love for my daughter.
