Play Time: Meet Honey Bear!

Posted on: February 21st, 2021 by Lorna McMahon

Welcome to the NEW Sew Fresh Quilts BLOG!!!

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

For the past two days ago, I also posted about my doll quilt sized Play Time quilt finishes…

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. Or to match their Teddy Bear!

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

Each block is 12″ wide by 14″ tall, by adding a 3″ to 3.5″ border, you can bring this quilt up to the perfect size for a standard 18″ doll bed.

I added 3.5″ wide borders to bring the block up to the desired size.

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

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.

I made a another little pillow too!

For this wee pillow, I simply pieced a bee print cuff on the end of the birch tree 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 only the third time I quilted anything without batting.

Resulting in the softest drape!
