When I first saw a preview of Dollhouse by Amy Sinibaldi for Art Gallery Fabrics, I knew I wanted to make something with the line. The soft pinks and grays are just so gorgeous, and those butterflies and flowers are adorable. Add a few geometric prints, and I’m definitely sold.
I designed a lap quilt with my favorite quilt design app, Quiltography, and used my Quilter’s Planner to keep organized as I checked off the steps of making my quilt.
After a few block and color changes, I decided to make Deco Tiles, a quarter log cabin quilt using Dollhouse fabrics and a selection of Pure Elements and Floral Elements fabrics by Art Gallery Fabrics.
The Deco Tiles block was designed to echo the print from Rooftop, one of the fabrics in the line. I wanted to make the whole quilt a closer match to the Rooftop print, so I set the blocks on point. Click here for a free PDF copy of the Deco Tiles Pattern if you’d like to make this quilt yourself. The pattern includes a detailed list of fabric requirements, and a diagram for constructing the quilt top on point. If you do make a Deco Tiles quilt, I’d love to see it! Please tag it on social media using #decotilesquilt so I can find it.
Now that the quilt is done, I’ve moved on to using the scraps in as many ways as possible. I’ve got a set of butterfly wings for my daughter and a small purse for myself on the to-do list. First, though, I’m making a wallet for Santa to deliver to a friend of mine.
What projects do you make with your scraps after finishing a quilt? I’d love to hear in the comments. I’m always looking for new, fun projects to add to my ever-growing project to-do list.
