Doll Quilt Swap

I recently participated in my first quilt swap.  It was a doll quilt swap organized by Lori of Humble Quilts.  We had about a month to make a doll quilt using Civil War reproduction fabrics.  I was in!

I have many doll quilts and enjoy making them because they're a "quick fix." They don't require much in the way of time or fabric but they allow you to try out different patterns.  No, I don't play with dolls anymore but I use the little quilts to decorate my house.

The top quilt is the one I made and is en route to its recipient if it hasn't already arrived.  The bottom quilt is the one I received from a different quilter and I am delighted with it!

Check out Lori's blog to see other photos of the doll quilt swap.


  1. I really love both of these! I didn't realize until seeing these photos together that they are similar - a 4 patch and 9 patch on point and both so colorful. What a fun swap.

  2. Thanks Anne! I really love the little quilt you made for me.

  3. P.S. Did you make the quilt in your header? I made a bunch of those pie circles last year too. They are great.

    1. Yes, I made a large wall hanging. It was lots of fun!
