Small Quilting

Inspired by a recent guild presentation on small quilts by Cindy Felts, President of Piece and Plenty Quilt Guild, Rolla, MO, I made this small doll quilt, measuring 22" x 22". To the right is the proposed binding fabric. It is simply a repetition of the Jacob's Ladder block, made dynamic by the use of strong colors. The cheddar is one of my favorites - so much so that I bought a bolt from Mary Jo's Cloth Store. It is Prairie Cloth and if memory serves, the color is tangerine. Next up this afternoon - quilting on my home machine using some of the tips I have learned in Jacquie Gering's Craftsy class.


  1. What a fun little quilt! I like the criss cross pattern it makes. Plus, I love all things gingham, so I think the binding will be perfect!

  2. pretty little quilt, those blocks must have been so fiddly to do as they are only 2" if my brain is functioning correctly, happy quilting

    1. Yes, your math is correct, the blocks finish at 2". They are not too fiddly, though, as they are simple paper-pieced half square triangles and four patches.
