Heather Ross Mendocino - Finished doll quilt for Hazel

Hi!  I just got this quilted and wanted to show you the finished Mendocino Doll Quilt!

I cut into my (rare) Mendocino fabrics by Heather Ross.  I just sent this along with the Castle Peeps Quilt to Zeb's sister Hazel.  I thought the older sister of my newborn cousin would like something cool in the mail too!


I used the ticker tape doll quilt pattern as a guide from Pretty in Patchwork - Doll Quilts: 24 Little Quilts

Scraps all laid out

I just love the mermaids, jelly fish, turtles, schools of fish and seaweed, and I think Hazel will too!  : )

  1. I love how you quilted this, Linda! It turned out beautifully. I have some Mendochino I have been sitting on......can't wait to eventually cut it up! So pretty :)

  2. It turned out beautiful! I don't want to admit how much effort I'm putting into resisting going to Etsy to browse the available Mendocino scrap bundles!

  3. So cute! It's hard sometimes to cut into our precious OOP fabric but it's so satisfying when you do and it comes out as beautifully as this project.

    1. Hi to the AOL person above. I can't reply to you on email so I'm replying here. Thanks for the sweet comment! I can't take too much credit for the colors - you'll have to credit Heather Ross. I just added a couple extra fabrics to her already amazing line. : )

  6. Mendocino is still one of my all-time favorite lines. I made a quilt for my daughter a few years back out of it and it still makes me smile every time I see it! I love the quilting and the layout. Great job!
