Summer Stitching Club doll quilt finished

September 22, 2013 | 7 Comments

On Monday I wrote about the Summer Stitching Club quilt I wanted to finish and I’m pleased to say I’ve done it! Thank goodness Saturday night television is so dire, eh? A couple of nights ago I hand quilted inside the yellow hexagons. The word quilting makes me shudder but this was simple and effective for such a small piece of work.

To be honest I was quite scared of finishing the quilt which is probably why I’ve been staring at it for so long. However, last night I bit the bullet. First of all I trimmed the edges to make the sides even. It felt totally wrong to cut through my stitches!

Then I made some binding to co-ordinate with the orange hexagons. I stitched it on by hand and this was the only part of the instructions I didn’t follow. Binding scares me more than anything so I wanted to do it the way I knew and had done before.

It only took a couple of hours to complete the final stages and I love the finished doll quilt, it’s a great addition to my doll quilt collection. It measures 30x42cm so is the perfect size for one of my daughter’s doll beds, not that I’ve shown it to her yet as I’m enjoying looking at it far too much.
