Mini /Doll Quilt and Quilt Top

Earlier in the year Kathie from Inspired by Antique Quilts gave the size for the template to make this little block so other quilty bloggers could make a little quilt if they would like to.   I made a Christmas coloured small quilt top and then yesterday I made this one, using some repro charm squares I've had sitting near my machine for ages.  I've made this one smaller than the Christmas quilt top and I really like the size.  I think this one will live on the wall above my sewing table once it's completed.  I have a collection of small and mini quilts ready to be quilted, I need to find a backing fabric that will suit all of them so I can quilt them on my longarm machine.

I have finally put this top together and all it needs now is the border.  I'm so pleased with how this has turned out.  It's a pattern called French Bouquet by Kookaburra Cottage and I've mostly used Rural Jardin by French General which I love.  So I'll get cracking and put the border on so I can get it quilted ready to put on my bed when the cooler weather sets in, not too far off.

I am really happy with the applique centre, I was a little unsure if the fabric I chose for the leaves and stems would look OK.

Happy stitching,


  1. I love that French Bouquet quilt and your fabric selection is just perfect!

  2. I love both quilts...lovely soft fabric selection on the second quilt..

  3. I have been contemplating making French Bouquet as a birthday present for my grandmother. Yours looks sensational and I love the fabrics you chose. Was the appliqué centre difficult? I am relatively new to appliqué but looking for a challenge.

  4. Nice collections of different designs.It look so beautiful and we can use it for the Blanket.It really new and great idea for the crafting creations.
