One of my friends recently asked me to make a stroller quilt for her newest baby. She also wanted a matching doll quilt to give to her son for when the new baby was born. She gave me full creative freedom, saying only that she liked grey and pops of colour.
I thought about what to do for awhile but eventually settled on a pattern from Elizabeth Dackson’s (of Don’t Call Me Betsy fame) Book – Becoming a Confident Quilter. I freehanded my random cuts and finished up the blocks at 10.5”.
Here are the finished quilts:
The doll quilt is 20” x 30” and the stroller quilt is 30” x 40”.
I backed them both in this blue and grey chevron. I quilted with a wide zigzag and my walking foot. I used a scrappy binding on both quilts.
Here is just the stroller quilt:
And here is just the doll quilt:
I think they turned out pretty cute and I hope my friend (and her two boys) love them.
