I can't find the original thread so I decided to post my doll quilt here. It's going out in the mail tomorrow!

That is so cute Jill....just lovely.
Oh that is a lovely doll quilt. I saw it on the June Stashbusters before the binding. Wow, that lime green binding really gives it that extra punch. I love this quilt & it will make a sweet girl happy. Thanks so much for making it & representing Texas. You've made us Texans proud!
Pls. Tell us the name of the wonderful pattern. Thx!

Thank you! I found the quilt on this blog:
She references the pattern Anchors-a-Swirl in Evelyn Sloppy's book 40 Fabulous Quick Cut Quilts.
I didn't use the pattern though. I just sewed three strips together, cut them into squares and then used them to make the half square triangles. I started out using equal strips, but toward the end, i experimented with making the center strip a little more narrow.
Cute quilt, Jill. I've got to get mine done...maybe even started. Are they due Sept 1?
Very cute...isn't fun to experiment & try some ideas out on a small project?
Very cute quilt! A little girl is going to be very happy!
this is such a cute quilt project!! Love it!
Really cute Jill!!!

That's adorable Jill! I've got to get mine done also!
Yes, I believe they are due on September 1. Nice to have it on it's way!
I did have fun playing with it. I did have a few stressful times, but I learned as I went!
Y'all are correct. Sept. 1 is the deadline. I think this will give Debbie plenty of time to get a good count on how many more she will need before Christmas if we all send ours in by Sept. 1. This being said, if you don't have yours in by Sept. 1 and still want to send one, please, please, please go ahead and send them in after Sept. 1. It is NEVER too late to send one (or more) to Debbie.
WQFC - some lucky little girl is going to love it! Nice job.
That's a nice quilt, Jill. I will have to go check out the blog directions.
Very nice doll quilt.

LoveHobbyCraft - I'm not sure I understand your question, but yes, I did use scraps for the striped parts. I sewed three strips together and paired them with squares of white fabric. Then I sewed them into the half square triangles. I tried to start with a larger square and trim them down to size.
Hope that helps!
When I look at it I see kites. Now that you have explained how you made them I still see kites!
That's a happy little quilt. Reminds me of bows on little girls' pigtails.
Wonderful doll quilt! I love the spots of color in with the white. You do such nice work, WQFC!!
lovehobbycraft, I don't think I've seen you here before. Welcome to the boards! This is a great board & if you are a quilter (new or old) you will learn a lot from some really talented quilters here. Post often so we can get to know you.
