The Allatoona Quilters’ Guild has a holiday party/meeting on the first Tuesday in December. We always have an optional gift exchange. In past years we have exchanged ornaments, tote bags, table runners and more that I can’t remember. This year we are exchanging doll quilts.
The rules are pretty simple. We each make a small doll quilt. The measurements need to be 12 inches minimum on a side with a maximum of 24 inches. It can be any size as long as it fits in these measurements and the quilt has small blocks or designs. A regular 12 inch block is not OK.
I made a candle mat for another swap out of a charm pack of “Make Life” and didn’t use all the charms. I didn’t use any of the solid colors so I started with them and played with what to do. I made half square triangles that measure 1 1/2 inches finished. There were four different solid colors in the charm pack. Of course I used them up quickly but I did have another charm pack so opened it up and kept going.
I wish I had taken more photos of the different options I played with but here is the final setting – missing two blocks that I am working on.
I am liking how it is turning out. I don’t think I will put a border on but will decide after I get it completely pieced.
