Lucky Thirteen

I’ve long admired the amazing work in the Doll Quilt Swap on Flickr. The quilts are between 9×9″ and 20×20″. And I think most end up as wall hangings! And they’re all just amazing- tons of details, intricate quilting and tiny piecing! Well, I was lucky enough to get into round 13!!
My partner said she liked bright neutrals/low volume with a spot of saturated color. I decided to practice my hexie making skills with some low volume fabrics.

Then I hand stitched the hexies together! I chose fabrics with spots of bright color.

And I used my favorite Chicopee print for a bright frame to the hexies.

And some text from Mama Said Sew for the background!

And then the quilting began! I did a few chevron lines to get started! Added loops through the hexies.

  1. I think yours came out great! Sorry mine is not coming to you. This is my 3rd DQS and I have always enjoyed the process though it was a little more difficult this round with it starting before Christmas.

  2. I love this (and I’m not generally a mini quilt or mug rug person). This would look great hanging! I’m loving all of the low volume stuff right now!
