Doll Quilt 3
By Maritza, soto softies

Maritza made several doll quilts at the same time. This one was inspired by Liesl of Disdressed and measures approximately 14″ x 17″. You can find more information on Maritza’s soto softies blog.

Maritza adds, “I didn’t use a pattern per se. This particular doll quilt is a smaller version of a quilt top that I had been working on (that I need to pick up and finish) which you can see here.”

    The quilting design that frames the quilt is so wonderful. It creates a subtle but irresistible perception of the quilt popping in and out, like it’s 3-D. I also like the little windows of color–great choice of fabrics…
