Doll Quilt Finishes

Nine-Patch Doll Quilt (Freebie).  Designer: Kathleen Tracy.  Batting: Hobbs Tuscany cotton.  Backing: Calico.  Size: 14" x 18".  Quilting: Hand quilted with Pearl No. 8
Red and Blue Shoo Fly.  Designer: Kathleen Tracy (American Doll Quilts book).  Batting: Mountain Mist Cream Rose cotton.  Backing: Calico.  Size: 13 1/2" x 17".  Quilting: Hand quilted with Pearl No. 8

Both the doll quilts are completed.  It now needs a wash in the washing machine to bring out all the puckering goodness when cotton batting is used.

Four baby kimonos are in progress using flannel.  I did not use Heather Ross' pattern after all, too much grief.  I went with Amy's of Habitual. Need to get them serged and I intend to use 3/4" satin ribbon as it's binding and ties.

1.5kg of rice and cotton wool for 2 projects i.e. weights for hand quilting and a sewing ham respectively.


  1. Two wonderful quilts and adorable kimonoes!!!

  2. The kimonos are adorable!! I just LOVE your quilts, especially the bottom one. Beautiful hand stitching!
