Barbara:
How is everyone doing on your Doll Quilts.

For my second doll quilt I've selected the Hexagon Flowers Doll Quilt. I'm not a hand work person but decided I needed to expand my horizons. Plus, it's something I can do while watching TV. I did a practice block last night. This morning I'm cutting out those little hexagons (thank you Kathleen Tracy for including a link to printing off the paper hexagon templates) I'll start hand stitching them together while watching Masterpiece Mystery and Survivor tonight. Since I plan to connect all these doll quilts into a bed size quilt, I may use the same background fabric in all of them.

If my attempts at hand stitching the hexagons don't turn out real great, I'll make potholders out of the little buggers.

Here's a photo of the practice block on the left.  I did hand stitch the petals together but machine appliqued the flower to the background. I think I may hand applique the red one just to see if I can stand doing that much hand work.

Hi Judy,

That's adorable!  I only aspire to doing this, so I applaud you for diving in. :-)  I hear it not only gets better as you go, but gets down right addicting. :-)  Let us know how it goes for you.

Judy...

Are you doing these the "English Paper Piecing" method?  I watched Fons and Porter on QNNtv and saw how they did it that way.  Just curious.  By the way, I like the colors.

Candy. No, I'm using the authors instructions with a hexagon template. It's a bit tedius. I've never done paper piecing. But I'll have to check it out.  Thanks.

Candy. I just watched the video and that is the method I'm using. Except I was ironing the edges over. Really a pain. In the video she glues the edges over the template using a temporary glue. I tried it, using my F&P glue stick, (I won't use the spray) and it's so much easier. Thanks again for putting me on to the video. I'll bet you've saved me hours! (well, not quite, but lots of time)

OK Gang,

I finally dug out my camera and here is my first doll quilt (or should I say, doll quilt top since it is not quilted).

Candy, I love it. Aren't these fun? I may do an extra one for my great-grand niece who is 3 years old.

Judy, those hexagons look pretty good to me for a first attempt. 

I've made these before with the English paper piecing method. I made a tablerunner all by hand. It was a very portable project for in the car, etc
