Spring-Themed Doll Quilt or Table Topper with Embroidery
Over time, a lot of test stitch-outs accumulate in our workshop. In this project we used some of the test stitch-outs to make a doll-sized quilt. The quilt can be used as a doll bed quilt or as a table topper (for a person sized table). We used the designs from the Geometric Flower Set and Tudor Rose Motif.

The finished size of the quilt is about 19" x 19".

You will need :
  • embroidery threads, either polyester or rayon (if embroidering from scratch)
  • white cotton fabric for the embroidery,
  • scraps of cotton fabrics (we used grass green, sunny yellow and lime; we selected these colors to match the colors of our embroidery),
  • light-weight cut-away embroidery stabilizer,
  • low-loft batting,
  • cotton backing,
  • binding,
  • rotary cutter and quilter's ruler,
  • iron.

Embroidery
We used test stitch-outs from our stash. We used the stitch-outs of the Tudor Rose Motif, for the central part of the quilt, and 4 stitch-outs from the Geometric Flower Set, for the corners.
Trim the central stitch-out to a 7 1/2" x 7 1/2" square.
Trim the flower stitch-outs to 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" squares.
Cutting:
Note: we describe the fabric colors as used in our quilt. Depending on the colors of your embroidery, you might use different colors.
For the first border, out of grass green fabric, cut
  • 4 strips measuring 2" x 7 1/2" and
out of white fabric, cut
  • 4 squares measuring 2" x 2".
For the second border, out of yellow and lime fabrics each, cut
  • 4 strips measuring 2" x 10 1/2".
We also used the yellow fabric for the binding, you'll need 2 strips 2 1/2" wide and the length of the width of the fabric, or a strip measuring 2 1/2" x 85".
For the third border, out of grass green fabric, cut
  • 2 strips measuring 2" x 16 1/2" and
  • 2 strips measuring 2" x 19 1/2".
Assembly:
Note: seam allowance is 1/4". Press the seam immediately after you make it.
Sew 2 of the 2" x 7 1/2" strips to the upper and lower edges of the central part.
