Unicorn Doll Quilts

I was looking for something else when I came across Elizabeth Hartman's Lisa the Unicorn pattern, but once I saw it, I knew it would have to take precedence over my 2019 quilt goals because of course it was perfect for my nieces. My sister emphasized the doll size quilt because they do not need any more stuff. Using 2.5" strips, the pattern resulted in blocks way larger than that, so I scaled it back to 1.25" strips. 

Claire initially wanted pink, purple, and teal, then changed her mind to rainbow, though I still emphasized pink/purple in my rainbow layout. I had to make two anyway, so I made one of both. The only thing I had to buy was a fat quarter of teal fabric because my stash is lacking in teal. I probably would've made the background blue for both if I'd had enough fabric, but I was otherwise using what I had on hand.  

You can see they did not turn out exactly the same. Clearly something went wrong in my adapted measurements, and the ear strips differ, as do the horns. I had the perfect unicorn fabric for the back, and used my trusty silver dots to bind them. 


Finished size: 16" x 20"
