The first three photos are the old quilt I was inspired by to make the doll quilt.
I love the way the way the cheddar and red dance across the top of this quilt.
So I tried a 6" block- Too BIG! A 5" block looks just right!!
The doll quilt we will make will be 3 x 3 for a total of nine blocks and will finish about 21 1/2" square. Perfect size for a doll!!
On the quilt I made with the 4" blocks I alternated the blue center square on the stars. I kept the dark blue on the stars the same but used a different one for the half square triangles.
On the 5" rendition that I am making I will alternate the center squares and keep the other blues in the block the same. My suggestion is to use a small print of shirting for the stars. They are fairly small pieces and the print will show up better. I am using a different shirting for the outer triangles.
It is going to be your quilt- you decide what you want.
What you will need as far as fabric?- not much. These are estimates, and it depends on how many blues you decide to use.
Cheddar and Red- 1/8 yard or half of a FQer
Blue center of star- approx 12"x3" strip, and 10x3" of a different indigo
Shirting for star- approx two (2) 2 1/2" x 22" strip
Outer triangle shirting- 1 Fqer or a little less
Blue fabric for setting squares and triangles- 1 FQer.
Get your fabric ready and I'll post step one tomorrow!! Woo-hoo!!
