Denyse Schmidt Doll Quilt Swap

My Mini Granny  for the DS Doll Quilt Swap is officially finished
and flying off to it's new home today!

Mini Granny (up close)
This was a fun little project for me.
Denyse Schmidt fabrics are among my most favorite, so it was fun to mix and match her collections for this quilt.

  Quilty Label
Trying to be a bit more creative with my label making and quilt backs these days, so this back, with it's super tiny block, makes me incredibly happy. 

  Mini Granny for DS Quilts Swap
I chose to do a very minimal amount of hand stitching, since everything else I tried was super distracting to the overall design.  It sort of disappears into the quilt, yet I kind of like it that way. 

Happy Monday!

It is so cute! Turned out really nice. :-) I've been trying to be more creative with labels too, for my current quilt I paper pieces an airplane--lots more fun!

This is my first time visiting (through Fabric Tuesday) and I just love the mini Granny square doll quilt. I really love DS fabric as well and I love how you used them and the back is really perfect. I love how you used the block on the back and incorporated it into the label. I have yet to label the few quilts I have made so far, but I really like this idea. I will definitely be following your blog now to see what other great projects you make. All very lovely so far!

very nice, making a doll sized quilt, makes the squares seem not so intimidating. I may have to try a doll sized one. Love your label as well
