Description

September 29, 2012: At our guild meeting this month we were all given the choice of four different bits of fabric (two solid and two stripe) from Michael Miller's Cotton Couture line and their Stripes line.  The challenge was to do something to emphasize the stripes.  This worked out really well because for Christmas I was already planning on making my daughter a doll quilt for her American Girl Doll.  I was also thinking brights and blacks as that's a color combo she's in love with currently.  Win-win!  So I picked up a few more solids to work with the pattern I had in mind (spiderweb quilt block) and voila! her doll quilt was born.  I've got the top sewn up and the back as well.  Now I just need to pin it and quilt it.  Still not sure what quilting pattern I'm going to go with yet. 
October 15, 2012: finished the quilt! Still need the mattress, pillow and pillow case still. I have till Christmas. I'm doing good so far (time wise).

Lucky little doll that gets to cuddle under this teeny tiny quilt! Sooo darling!

(Maybe Ken can strap the mattress on top of Barbie's car? Might save you some heavy lifting, too!)

Aprilc The doll bed frame was from Ikea. I kept hoping I'd have more time and paint it hot pink but alas... maybe it doesn't conflict with the quilt then? wink
