    My first doll quilt, My first biscuit quilt

    I joined the November doll quilt swap and decided to do this biscuit quilt. Never done this before.
    I just cut 3" squares for the top , 2 1/2" squares for the back and pleated the three sides on the machine.
    Then joined the 3 sided biscuits in a row by chain stitching.
    I put a little fiber fill in each one and then sewed up the open sides in the row.
    After I completed each row, I joined my rows together.
    Then I put the backing on the quilt by placing right sides together and sewing around the perimeter be sure to leave a small opening and turn inside out. Hand stitch opening closed and tacked together the backing from the front side.

    What would I do differently;
    The feel of the seams through the quilt feel bumpy. I want to try larger seams to see if they would lay flatter. I don't know if washing will soften the seams. I will try washing it before I mail it out to my swap partner. I still need to do the label.
    I will post all the progression pics on my blog if you want to take a look.

    Cute and colorful. Can't imagine doing this as a large quilt. Larger seams would be interesting to see. I see that you did a little fussy cutting in the design....nice.

    I always thought a bisquit quilt would be fun. Yours certainly turned out well! Maybe you could put a cotton batting between the front and back?

    Very pretty. I love your bright colors.
    The first quilt I made was in the 60's and it was a full size biscut quilt. When we moved from Indiana to GA I gave it to my brother. He used it for a while then stored it in a plastic tub. You guessed it it molded. Oh well it was well used and loved before it went to quilt heaven.
    We would worry less about what others think of us if we realized how seldom they do.

    Very pretty, I have made lots of biscuit quilts, crib to queen sizes. I consider them comforters with a quilt pattern. Don't know if they can be made softer.
