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!
