Tutorial – Little Boys’ Toys Doll Quilt
I’m still in a doll quilt making frame of mind, as we have just mailed off our first box of quilty goodness. Not only is it for a good cause, but it also allows me to practice my ruler and FMQ. Today I share a link to Lyn Brown‘s website for a mini quilt called Little Boys Toys doll quilt.
What I love most about this pattern is the sails and the one boat sailing in a different direction. The ingredients for this mini quilt aren’t all that daunting either.
Doll Quilt Fabric Requirements:
- 1 yard for the background/border
- 1/4 yard needed for the sails
- 1/2 yard for the boats and binding
- 1/4 yard for the sashing
Don’t you think this would also be adorable with different colored boats, using scraps from your stash? With a 5″ rectangle needed you could also use up those extra charm pack pieces you have lying around. I really love the background in the first picture – it reminds me of the boats floating in cloudy weather. The water is even a little churned up! You could be SO creative with this cute little design, don’t you think?! This finishes at 21″ x 26″ which is a nice, good sized doll quilt.
