Pinkears Quilts!


I commissioned a doll quilt from Kim Morris (http://pinkears-creative.blogspot.com/2017/12/peacock.html), and it arrived this week! Here is the package:

It's 2 foot by 3 feet (roughly) and it folded up so well--it's the perfect weight for dolls. And it's signed!

Here it is hung the other direction:


It's SO PRETTY. It's (sort of) for Zi Gui the Cuckoo Fairy, but I still need to make her matching Hanfu set to go with this. I think she might end up being one of the more exotic Cuckoos, like this Asian Cuckoo (female):


If you want to commission you own quilt, be aware you are spending the equivalent of a ball-jointed doll because of the hours involved. Though it's hard to see in the photos, the quilting stitches make delicate spirals on top of the assembled squares; it's all hand-done. And it's glorious.

    1. My dolls get blankets before clothes half the time--it's easier to make them fit ;) Merry Christmas, too!
