This pretty pretty line is going to be in stores in August / September (depending on where in the world you are).
As soon as I saw this line I was hit by an urge to make something with ruffles. I was looking for a ruffled apron pattern when out of nowhere came the idea to make a doll quilt with ruffles instead. I am so pleased that it turned out just as I had pictured it.
Technically it's not so much a mini quilt but more a sleeping bag, as there is a sleeve in which you place the doll, so that it becomes a 'mattress cover and quilt all in one'. Which was a bit of a mouthful so I went with 'doll quilt' and hoped that everyone could see what I meant from the photos.
I machine quilted the patchwork centre in diagonals, and hand quilted around the perimeter in DMC cotton perle no 8. A sweet little patch in one corner completes the design.
I designed the quilt to fit Alice's doll bed, which is this popular one from IKEA. The adorable Waldorf Steiner doll is by Deb's Steiner Dolls - those curls just kill me!!
You can now purchase the pattern for this doll quilt in my shop at a special introductory price. If you make one please send me a photo or tag it on Instagram with #downgrapevinelane or #ruffledollquilt so I can see your finished projects!
