Doll's Memory Quilt - Finished!

Hello everyone !! 

Hola a todas !!

Who was going to tell me when I wrote this that I was going to finish my first own quilt (although mini and only for dolls) just 4 months after I would finish my own hand quilted quilt !

The final push to make this came when I saw this wonderful quilt from Nana's Company (she inspires me sooo much). 

I hand quilted it and I have enjoyed it soo much, I loved it!

Quien me iba a decir a me cuando escribí esto que 4 meses después iba  a hacer mi propia colcha (aunque sea miniatura y para muñecas solo) acolchada a mano !!

El empuje final me lo dio el ver esta maravillosa colchita de muñecas de Nana's Company (me inspira tanto su blog . . .)

Como he dicho antes la acolche a mano y me ha encantado la experiencia !!

I want this quilt to be a treasure for my daughter and so it has little gorgeous details in it. 

Like her name embroidered or stitched in the corner. Now the beautiful part of this simple embroidery
is that is my daughter's own hand writing. She's just turned 5 and starting to write. I asked her to write her name and age onto a piece of paper and also I took a little flower drawing she had made the same day. 

Queria que esta colcha fuera algo especial y un tesoro para mi hija así que tiene preciosos detalles.

Como su nombre bordado en una esquina. La parte bonita de esto es que este simple bordado es la letra de mi hija. Acaba de hacer 5 añitos y esta empezando a escribir. La pedí que me escribiera su nombre y su edad en un trocito de papel y luego tome también una flor que ella había dibujado ese mismo día.

I transfered her writing and drawing on to plain white fabric and them stitched over it. Now, that little rectangle will be a memory forever of her handwriting at the age of 5 and that her mummy's stitching. 

Transferi su escritura y dibujo a tela blanca y repase con hilo y aguja. Ahora ese pequeño rectángulo
sera un recuerdo de su escritura con 5 años y el bordado de su mama.

Then I also went for it and labelled it with the same technique, but this time I copied my blog name from my own blog and stitched it with the date when I made the quilt. This way I will have a memory that one day I had a blog, in 30 year's time , God only knows where or what blogs will be. . . 

Tenia ilusión por poner etiqueta y lo hice con la misma técnica, esta vez copie el nombre de mi blog y los borde, incluyendo el mes en el que hice la colcha. Esto será un recuerdo de que un día tuve un blog, dentro de 30 años , quien saber donde o lo que serán los blogs ? . . .



Have a wonderful week !! 
Que tengais una fantastica semana !!


  1. It is so beautiful. I love how you stitched her name, age and the flower. What a wonderful idea! It looks so sweet and your label on the back is so sweet too. I love it. I love the white border and the pink polka dot binding too.

  2. I just had to come back to your blog and look at the quilt again so I am leaving you two comments. It is so pretty. There is a flickr group for items made that are inspired by Nana Company. I have a doll quilt I made on it.

    Me encanta el detalle de la letra de tu nena!!

  4. It turned out so beautifully! I love what you did with your daughter's name and handwriting too, that will be a lovely thing for her to have when she's older and and can look back to when she was so Young :) xoxo

  11. Hallo Eva!! this quilt is WONDERFUL! So bright, so lovely, amazing!! I love it.. to answer to your question, yes, I can't sell abroad for tax reasons. I could sell in EU countries but only if I open another practice and it's expensive.. I think you can understand, since you live in a country non to different from mine.. it's a mess!!
    many hugs

  12. Gorgeous little doll quilt! I love the fabric colours you've used, and the sweet embroidery makes it extra special!
