Doll Quilt Swap 12

My doll quilt for DQS12 is finished and off in the mail today!  I used an assortment of Moda Crossweaves to make up this little quilt using three of the blocks we were allowed: flying geese, churn dash and log cabins.  The quilt is 12" square and those little log cabin blocks are just three inches! I paper pieced them and they turned out much better that way than the alternative! (crossweaves are a little stretchy!) 

I hope my partner likes it?! We weren't allowed solid white backgrounds and this seemed to be the crossweave color that allowed for the greatest contrast to show off the brights but I'm a bit worried that it's a bit to muddy for them?!

Thanks for stopping by today.  To see all the other fabulous doll quilts, check out the flickr group!

And I'm linking up with Megan at Canoe Ridge Creations for Sew Modern Monday!

Gorgeous Karen! I would love to be it's new owner. Those teeny log cabins are perfect and the colors are great. I'm glad the requirement was no white - made me think!

hi there - I was wondering what fabrics they are and now I know - and I love the background fabric - is kinda chocolately and sets of the pink and other colours beautifully - definately not muddy :)
