‘Handmade Monday’ First mini-quilt

Posted on

I have been regularly looking at all the fab blogs and goodies featured on the ‘Handmade Monday’ section of 1st Unique Gifts although I have been a bit lazy with the crafty stuff lately – something to do with the sun shining I think! Anyway, here is my first attempt at a patchwork quilt, it is very, very small but will be perfect for the doll and crib that little ‘T’ got for her Birthday in March. It’s not quite finished as you can see but I’m pleased with it so far, it’s made from the remnants of the bunting in her bedroom so even better that it’s made entirely from scraps!

  5. Well done on your first quilt, warning can be addictive.

  6. Excellent use of your scraps! Seeing it takes me back a long way – I made a doll’s quilt for my oldest daughter (now 27!)and she loved it. However, it turned out she didn’t much like dolls and her doll’s pram was always full of toy rabbits or cats so the quilt was well-used by the stuffed toys!
