Reversible Dolly Quilt
The last thing we need for our dolly bed is the quilt. I made mine reversible, and to be honest, the design of my quilt was dictated by my fabric scraps. There were certain fabrics I wanted to use and I only had little pieces. I also didn't want to make an elaborate quilt for a dolly. I'm not a quilter and I like quick projects. This took maybe 30 mins.
If you'd like to make a quilt like mine, read on! :)
The finished dimensions of this quilt will be 18 inches X 21 inches.
4 pieces Fabric A 3.5 inches X 21.5 inches
2 pieces Fabric B 2.5 inches X 21.5 inches
1 piece Fabric C 2.5 inches X 21.5 inches
Use 1/4 inch seam allowance
You could use real quilt batting but I find this too thick for a dolly blanket. Fleece, or even microfleece works great!
Now, the reason we are doing this, is because we are not going to bind this quilt like a traditional quilt. This is a dolly quilt and I wanted to make it fast and easy!
