Packed with techniques, patterns, and inspiration for small-scale quilts.
Doll-sized quilts can be completed relatively quickly and inexpensively. They can be made into cushion covers, runners or wall decorations, or used as a lesson or as a trial for a larger project; and they can be swapped, gifted or posted. In these 15 step-by-step projects, sometimes the quilt is just one block, sometimes several blocks, but all have been designed with the same attention to detail as a full-sized quilt. Seven quilts have been designed by Sarah Fielke and seven by Amy Lobsiger, and the final quilt is a collaboration - with Amy making the central circle, then sending it to Sarah to turn it into a finished quilt. Techniques include hand- and machine-quilting, traditional piecing, paper piecing, applique and embroidery. The size of the quilts (nothing larger than 60 x 60cm/24 x 24in) will tempt you to try a new sewing technique or a new design concept, and you can either follow the instructions or use them as inspiration for your own quilt design.
