This is the little doll quilt I made for miss Krista of Poppyprint creates. If you haven't met Krista yet, you really should, because she is the perfect blend of artistic and scientific, sympathetic and realistic, and all kinds of encouraging and genuine.
My goal is to drive up the 5 to her land of Canada one day quite soon.
Originally, I was going to use a different design from Material Obsession 2, when I saw a little blog post of miss Krista's.
Thankfully, I knew a cheater way to make those lone star diamonds, and had even made one before, so this weekend, after adding a few new voiles to my collection, I got started.
And then I wanted to finish.
I made an error with a few of my measurements, and consequently had to change some of the fabric selections (I didn't want to waste Little Folks), but I still think it turned out beautifully.
I also wasn't sure how to quilt it, and Krista, I hope you don't mind what I settled with... I really wanted the fabric to stand out on the quilt (because it's so pretty).
The border is one of my favorite parts of the quilt (that and the purple diamonds), so I chose my binding so as to enhance and not detract from the border.
The linen is the heavy linen from Moda's French General.
I hope you love it! No rush on the return Krista! As soon as I get the label sewn on, I'll mail it your way.
(The reality is, I have a Christmas to make list a mile long, a couple more swap items, and just got our insurance changed over finally ;) ;)... Since I don't know how much sewing I'll be doing in a couple months, I wanted to get it done now!). :)
P.S. Thank you everyone for all the love on "I Dance in Circles."
