tiny 9 patch

Have you been following the daily giveaway's over on The Vintage Sheet Blog? Each day, a giveaway! It is very cool and I have found so many great blog friends there too.

And of course I am participating! I will be making a special doll quilt using just vintage sheets. I have such a great stash and I love each piece in there.

But before I cut anything up, I wanted to do a practice quilt and a book review too. After I saw the Dainty Doll Quilt in Sew Darn Cute, I just had to give it a try. See how it's made with vintage sheets too, love it!

So I pulled out these little squares of Japanese fabrics and gave this little quilt a try. And I loved it just so much! The instructions are so simple and easy to follow that I am now on quilt #3 of the Disappearing Nine Patch.

I am so loving the quilting. I am still so surprised that I do. And if you like the tiny quilt, perfect for your fav doll, then just visit my shop. You can see the fabulous and finished version there.

Ok... twist my arm. You can see it now!

I love the quilt. I will have to make one for my doll so will be looking up that book. The prints you chose are very cute and ideally suited for the project.

Thank you for stopping by my blog, I enjoy visitors.
