Play Time: Meet Ginger!

Posted on: February 19th, 2021 by Lorna McMahon

Welcome to the NEW Sew Fresh Quilts BLOG!!!

Two days ago, I showed you my Play Time quilt finish…

Today I am sharing my doll quilt sized Play Time quilt finish!

I am not going to lie…. I am really enjoying making these blocks….

Because this pattern offers SO MANY different hair styles and clothing options, you can make your block to match a little dolly in your life.

Then you can make that block into a matching dolly quilt!

Each block is 12″ wide by 14″ tall, by adding a 3″ border, you can bring this quilt up to the perfect size for a standard 18″ doll bed.

I strip pieced 1.5″ width of fabric strips, and then crosscut the 12.5″ and 14.5″ borders. Then made 9 patch blocks for the cornerstones.

I did not use any batting in the doll quilt, but instead chose to use flannel for the backing.

I made a little pillow too!

For this wee pillow, I simply pieced a green cuff on the end of the floral print, folded the fabric with right sides together, then placed it on a piece of batting and stitched around the two raw edges on the left and bottom, turned the tube outside right, folded in the raw edges inside on the right side of the cuff and top stitched closed.

I have made many table runners, placemats and even a few doll blankets before, but this is the first time I quilted anything without batting.

This wee quilt has the softest drape!

I pinned the top directly to the wrong side of the flannel backing and quilted in my usual wavy lines from edge to edge. Then added a machine finished binding.

This little ginger gal reminds me of someone….

  1. So so adorable! The pattern looks fun to make and your photos are just precious! I love the one of the dolls providing loving sleep support, or maybe they are singing lullabies to the doll who can’t sleep because she’s worried about covid?!? LOL Hope you’re doing well Lorna!
