Bloggers Quilt Festival Mendocino Doll Quilt!


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.
