Cuddle Doll Quilt Challenge

Hi everyone! We are finally sharing images of the sweet doll quilts made for a challenge we did with the Portland Modern Quilt Guild (PMQG) and Northwest Quilters. We teamed up to help support the arts in Oregon, specifically the Oregon Ballet Theater’s (OBT) performances of The Nutcracker.

A bit more about the challenge: each guild member was given a fat quarter of Kozy Cuddle to incorporate into a doll quilt of their own design. We provided Cuddle 3 colors: RedTealIvoryParis Pink and Dark Lime, which were selected from a palette created using the OBT ‘Welcome to the Land of Sweets’ artwork. The finished doll quilts were sold during the Oregon Ballet Theater’s (OBT) performances of The Nutcracker in December 2013.

Here are some of the quilts that were made:

We want to thank all of the quilt guild members again, especially Michelle, for donating their time, talent and creativity to this project.

And, there’s more—we will be sharing a free doll quilt pattern made for the challenge, designed by Michelle Freedman, the past president of the Portland Modern Quilt Guild (PMQG). Stay tuned…

    They are all so cute !!! My favourite is the ‘Polka Dot’ only because my one year old Granddaughter looks so cute in polka dots. I would love for her to have one exactly like this when she is older and plays with dolls. Thank you for sharing these doll quilts.

      Hello Darylene,

      We love polka dots too! And, doll quilts are so much fun to make. We would very much like to see a photo of your doll quilt, when and if you make one for your granddaughter.

      Hugs,
      Ellen
