Doll Quilt

nostalgic Russian fabric and modern embroidery

Doll Quilt

I want to share a special quilt that I made for my daughter Sury.  She’s 9 years old.  Of course, the quilt has a doll theme.

The center block of the quilt is a nostalgic handkerchief from Russia. I thought it was so interesting, it inspired me to make something with it.  The handkerchief belonged to Sury’s grandmother. I wanted to preserve it for her.

Most of the fabric in this quilt is also Russian.  The yellow is from the US.  It’s quiet and compliments the authentic fabric very well.  I used the embroidery unit on my sewing machine to copy the image and stitch it out. The embroidered blocks are in each corner of the quilt, which isn’t visible in this photo.

Here’s Sury’s quilt with her favorite doll.

 

Thank you for looking.  Have a dollightful day!
