I have a guilty pleasure (besides coffee, chocolate, and Ben and Jerry’s ice cream). I love doll quilts. They serve no practical purpose other than to make me smile, which they’ve managed to do since making my first one in 1986.
This was it, a basic nine patch in pastel colors. For some reason, I tea dyed the whole quilt when it was finished, perhaps to take some of the "newness" off. It's a trick I learned from the "Little Quilts" gals. A tea bath helps blend the colors and gives your quilt a soft, aged appearance.14” x 19”
