DQS8 Doll quilt Swap

I joined the DQS8 doll quilt swap. My partner is an amazing quilter so I was nervous about making this quilt. I made 3 different quilts before I found what I wanted. I decided to try and machine stitch my binding down. Big mistake! I am NOT good at machine stitching the binding down and it came out absolutely horrendous.

So, the front of the quilt came out nice and the back, not so nice :-) I hope my partner likes it!

Happy quilting!


  1. If you *must* machine stitch binding, sew it to the back of the quilt first, then use a decorative stitch to finish it on the front. I rarely do this but I'm always surprised at how great it turns out. :)

  2. Bradie, That makes so much sense and would have turned out so much better. Although I much prefer to hand stitch which I thought I hated but actually love :-)

  3. Oh my goodness, she will LOVE it!
    I LOVE IT!!
