The fabric colors for the criss cross coasters were so fun I decided to make a doll quilt from them.
This is my first attempt at a pieced quilt, but so far I'm feeling good. I haven't even completed one block, but feeling good nonetheless.
I'm trying the Disappearing 9 Patch, using this tutorial. So far, things are moving along quite nicely. Like I said, I sewed the first nine patches together, I've cut them up and rearranged. Now I just need to sew the rearranged patches together and I'll have one block completed.
I'm not completely sure how many blocks it takes to make a doll quilt, or how long the actual quilting process will take, or how to really do the binding, but I'm still feeling pretty optimistic. If nothing else, I'm just happy to be back in the crafting groove.
