Another Doll Quilt

Well, I think obsession is hardly the word to described what is going on over here at casa de Katie. I've totally been stalking the doll quilt swap, and I'm so jealous of everyone's beautiful little quilts, but it's also been quite inspiring. While perusing flickr (completely addicting), I found a few groups for doll quilts. One is the Doll Quilt Challenge and July's challenge is the Confetti Quilt with a tutorial by Lady Harvatine. It is a wonderful tutorial and a fun technique.
I finally finished up the binding today and I think it came out pretty well. It is a little puckered, but what can you do. I did some handquilting again, only few straight lines around the squares.
I'm trying to decide if I should keep it, or offer it as a prize for the Use What You Have Challenge. Speaking of, it is almost the end of July. Remember to add your projects because the amount of projects you add equals the number of entries you get for the prize!! So get to using up your stash, it's only a few weeks before you'll all be running out to the fabric store!

This is so pretty! I am so excited to see people making my tutorial! It is doing something to the cockles of my heart.
Nice work. The fabrics you chose are just great!

Oh that is FANTASTIC, so beautiful. I am so loving quilts that mix prints with plains. I love the ones you chose =)

I've gotten obsessed with doll/kid quilts and went into the craft room with the idea of making one, and once I had cut out all my bits I had a big frikken quilt on my hands! LOL, I'll have to try again soon =P So now I'm working on my med/large wall quilt, haha.

flickr is so great. I was doing a search for "quilting" and somehow ended up here.
1. I love your quilt. It's very Denyse Schmidt, very freeform. I love that style.
2. I'm a Free Stater, too!
3. I'm just now getting into doll quilts -- they're so speedy! I'm hand-quilting my first one and am already thinking about what to make next.

Anyway. Nice work!

nice job on the doll quilt! I fell in love with that type of quilt as soon as I saw it, but haven't tried to make one for myself-yet.

Lovely! So Cute and Fun! If you keep it, you'll have your wall of doll quilts in no time.

Your quilt is so pretty!! I have no reason in the world to make a doll quilt, but now I want to!! :)

I love it. I love the simplicity of it and that it's a bit modern. Great job. Makes me realize I need to finish my other children's quilts.

I love that quilt, so cute!

I can hardly believe it is nearing the end of July! I don't want the challenge to end, because I know it means I will probably run out and buy fabric when I still need to be using what I already have:)
