So, I volunteered to make a doll quilt. I knew I already had a top in a tote all ready to quilt. I couldn't find it, but came across these "4 patch, checkerboard" blocks that are #213 and #219 in the book.
I put them together into this doll quilt.
I used a fat quarter for the backing.
Oh, the color just looks so faded out, sorry, still too much snow to take pictures outside.
The bolt of white fabric is a cotton/bamboo blend.
I bought at joann's with a coupon, they were out of the kona snow. I neglected to read the label before I bought it.
Can you see it says to use a cool iron. WHAT QUILTER USES A COOL IRON??????? I did a test on a small swatch with a hot iron so I could return it if I needed to. Well I was happy to find it held up to the heat. This little doll quilt will be given away so I don't have time to wash it. I think I will make myself some pot holders so I can wash them and see how they hold up to laundering. For right now I am happy with my purchase. I will keep you updated with further tests.
I am off to get ready to go out and have supper with DH and then I am home to sew for the Friday night sew in that Heidi is hosting tonight. Maybe that will help me get back on track with Pat's olympic challenge.
