It was so fun to check out all the mini quilts made with the new collections from Windham Fabrics!
This one is mine. Ugh! I really wanted to smooth out that wrinkle in the buildings! I promise it was all nice and flat when I sent it off. Should have quilted it more. Silly postal system smushing things up!
Anyway, this is the Ciao Bella collection.
This is the Celestial collection, the quilt was made by Rosemary Cavanagh.

What’s a doll quilt?
It’s a small quilt that’s between 16 and 22 inches in both length and width. It can be used for a wall hanging, a table centerpiece or a doll’s bedding. The quilts are pieced or appliqued.
A doll quilt is great for beginners because the small size makes it a very manageable first quilt project. Check out Kim’s quilt close up:
And look at this one from Jeri:
Even the back is full of fall color:
Here’s a couple more, I’m resisting the urge to overwhelm you with every single one of them. I love them all!!
Vanessa’s stacked coin quilt:
Check out this blanket stitch! Love!!
Jozel’s wonderful fall colors:
You want one, right? I know I do! Lorraine will be hosting the Winter Doll Quilt Swap very, very soon!
In the meantime, you can pop over to the forums and search the Runway for “doll quilt swap” to see other past participants’ quilts. I may also be unable to resist the urge to show you more of the quilts from the fall swap in the next day or two… :)
