Description

My PMQG-Oregon Ballet Theater Nutcracker challenge quilt. If you make a doll quilt for OBT to sell during their "Nutcracker" performances, you get an invite to the dress rehearsal and $10 off the price of a performance. It's not due for another three months, but I'm desperate for a finish, so I got right to it. It measures 14"x18".

I think it needs another star, but I was out of appropriate reds and I didn't want any repeats, so this is what I came up with. It inspires me to make a full-size quilt with these wonky blocks. There's a quilt on the back of the latest Modern Quilting magazine with a layout I really like, but my blocks were too large to try it here.

11/2014 -- quilts are gifted (no occasion, I just mailed them with no warning) and recipients were surprised and seem pretty pleased with them. :)

This was originally the back, until I remembered I had to use Cuddle as part of the challenge.

What a great doll quilt. I need to make a doll quilt for my niece's birthday. I only have 2 weeks. Guess I had better get it done.

I want to make more! I don't have any children in my life, so maybe I'll just make another for this project.

It's perfect. I have three nieces who I think need a doll quilt. I can't wait to get to them.

PS - I love the idea of the embroidery. Nice touch.

Thanks, Chriservin . I thought it was important to label it, but I didn't want an actual label on such a small piece. Then when I realized all the acronyms/initials I could use, I came up with this. I almost used an all-white star, but I preferred to camouflage it in the design of the fabric.

Love this cheery red & white! Makes me want to make a full sized one.It doesn't get much better than a star quilt made of red and whites!
