It's time again for the spring Blogger's Quilt Festival! I'm entering 2 quilts this spring - you can see my color wheel quilt here!
This is my Mendocino Doll Quilt. I made this last year, and I wanted to keep it - it's sooooo cute! I love the mermaids and seaweed and fish! I love the contrast of the dark pinks against the gold. I'm entering this one in the two-color quilt category.
I laid out the quilt in quadrants using a glue stick to stick the fabrics in place. I won't call them scraps, because as this was the first time I cut into my rare stash of Heather Ross Mendocino, I only had FQs and no scraps! : )
I used straight line quilting in a grid pattern (not marked). I just tried to catch in all the edges of the raw-edged fabrics.
