This Flying Geese doll quilt, for example.
Like the cute conversation print label I "slapped" on the back of my little Flying Geese quilt? I say slapped because it was difficult enough to finish all of the quilts on a short deadline, much less sew intricate labels on all of them. Sometimes, when I'm in a hurry, I just press a piece of fabric that's been backed with fusible web onto the back of a quilt and sign it. I always tell myself someday I'll do better : )
Here's another quilt from the book that was based on an antique doll quilt I purchased (bottom) -
Actually, I bought it thinking it was a real antique doll quilt but it appears to be a block from a larger cutter quilt that was made into a doll quilt. Oh well, still cute. And inspirational enough that I knew I wanted to reproduce it with new fabrics.
My Honeybee quilt was inspired by yet another antique doll quilt.
I changed the colors and gave mine a little more of a scrappy feel with many different reproduction prints.
I have a stack of old hand-pieced blocks with plans to become a simple doll quilt one day.
Still in the UFO pile after five years . . . . Too many other things to work on.
