Dresden Plate Doll Quilt

This quilt was made with tiny scraps of vintage 1930’s fabric left over from larger quilt projects.  I never throw away any little scraps because they can be used for doll quilts (and vintage fabric is precious).  This little quilt was pieced and quilted entirely by hand — even the binding.  The back is a vintage solid yellow — the same fabric used for the binding — and the batting is thin cotton.  It’s a nice break to work on a doll quilt since they take much less time than a full-sized quilt, and they are much more portable for piecing and quilting in the car or in the doctor’s office.  I always keep some kind of quilt piecing or embroidery in my purse just in case I have an extra few minutes to sew.  My family tells me I’m obsessed.
