FO Doll Quilt

It’s finally finished and on it’s way to northwest Arkansas! This doll quilt was so much fun to make and I had to learn all kinds of techniques to get it done. Machine quilting didn’t look good so I hand quilted for the first time. Hand quilting is very relaxing, much like knitting. Getting the binding on took three tries, but the mitered corners came out just right.

I’m thinking that one of the darker blues might have been better for the binding, but overall it’s not so bad for a first try. I am so sold on making small quilts because they are like little works of art that don’t take so long to make. (Or maybe it won’t take so long now that I have some experience!)
