This is how far I had got on Friday with my DQS9 quilt. It looks kind of finished, doesn't it? But I still have a way to go with embellishments.I really enjoyed making the trees. They are all machine pieced and then hand quilted. I even made a 'fancy' back (for the first time!).
I used all the quarter circles I had cut out of the background, mixed then all up and then needle turn appliqued them to some white sheeting. I tried to get them behind the trees on the front to make the quilting easier.
Here's a close up of the quilting, though I think you can see it better from the back.
I've had a bit of time to spend on the quilt this weekend so here is a sneak preview of some of the 'embellishments'.
First of all 'The secret door"!
Can you see the little door? I wonder what lives behind it?
And do you like my falling apples? They are made of felt and beads. Not sure I have done enough for the tree, do you think I need a few more?
Here is a little pile of mini leaf quilts! They are quilts because they have wadding sandwiched between 2 layers of fabric and are quilted!
They are going to get attached to one of the trees later.
I am having great fun making my 'enchanted forest' quilt and also looking at all the other amazing doll quilts being made. Some of them are even finished already! Take a look at the group pool for loads of inspiration.
Meanwhile I am off to make some holly leaves!
