Doll quilts designed by my girls (31&32)

I had a lot of extra scrap fabric (4 x 4 inches) from some skirts that I made and quilts I had completed.  My girls have seen me quilt and had great interest in it, so I decided to let them design their own quilts.  I let them pick out which scraps to use (“Pick thirty squares, you guys.”) and I let them pick a backing from several remnant fabrics I had just purchased.  Then, I arranged them in a way that I thought was pleasing.  But I wanted to give them the last word, so I let them switch blocks around if they felt a change was needed.  In the end, we have these cute little doll quilts.

My younger daughter really liked the butterfly material.  The binding that I used was also scrap fabric.  I wasn’t sure how often they would use these, but every once in a while I’ll walk into a messy toy room and my face will be beaming because in the middle of chaos will be a baby wrapped in one of these baby quilts.

Melts my heart.
