4-Patch Doll Quilt

 Look what I made on Thursday afternoon. I had no pattern; just made it up as I went. When one has plenty of fabric, pretty things can happen!

I found my inspiration on Pinterest. Many people view Pinterest as a great time-waster and I will admit to wasting many hours there, but it also has been a valuable source of inspiration for me time and time again. 

I'd pinned the quilt shown below ages ago, but it was making its way through another cycle of pinnings and it popped up in my feed. Click on the picture to go to the source. I love it every time I see it. So by gosh, I just went upstairs and made it.

 Selecting fabrics out of the stash was an adventure down memory lane, as many of the fabrics I chose have been used in previous projects. The 2-inch strips and the background fabric are shown above.

These fabrics became the setting blocks and the setting triangles. The pink has been in my stash for a very long time; the black is relatively new.

Here is a side-by-side comparison:


Mine is less subtle, but I still adore it. It was a very satisfying way to spend a Thursday afternoon.

Happy Quilting, Friends!

That doll quilt is so sweet! Great scrap buster too. Thank you also for visiting my blog and leaving a comment about the Snazzy Slouch Bag I made. I found your comment in my SPAM box because sadly you are a no-reply. You either have never set your email address in your settings or you have Google+ which messes things up and reverts you back to a no-reply from time-to-time and you need to reset your email address in your setting again. Thought I would give you a heads up on this in case you never get responses from your comments so you will know why.

Your quilt is beautiful, Jayne! I so admire people who can quickly make choices and move ahead on projects, AND finish them in a day! Love it.
