If you look back at my early blogging days, you would see lots of doll quilts. I used to make them all the time for my daughters, for gifts, for quick finishes in between larger projects, for trying out new techiques and designs . . . well, I guess I had lots of reasons for making them. I don't make doll quilts very often these days but recently I had a reason to so I took out some of my favorite fabrics and put this together pretty quick.
I wasn't even thinking about writing a tutorial so I didn't take any photos of my process but it was so simple, I just wanted to quickly tell you what I did. Basically, you just need one fat quarter of flannel, one fat quarter of backing fabric, and some scrap fabric. I used QAYG (quilt as you go) to make a log cabin block the size of the flannel. I then put that right sides together with the backing - stitched around the perimeter leaving a small opening for turning and then topstitched the perimeter (I actually only top stitched the top which is where I left the opening but if I was to make another one I would probably top stitch around the whole perimeter because I think it would look nicer on the back.)
And then my little helper and I went into her sister's room to take some photos!
