This is a cathedral window doll quilt for my little girl. All hand sewn. Excellent tutorial here. I tried to stay away from contemporary fabrics to give this a more old-fashioned look. I have an idea for a variation on this pattern using more modern prints that I may actually tackle soon. There is lots of folding and ironing and hand-stitching involved, but I enjoyed the process. I don’t think I’d have the patience for a full sized quilt, though.
My mother’s aunt hand-made her a queen sized quilt in this style. When my mom saw that I had made this mini quilt, she said, “Now do you understand why I used to have a near heart attack when you kids would hook your fingers into the fabric to pull yourselves up onto the bed?” Yes, Mom. Now I understand.
