Description

I made this as a gift for my niece for Christmas.  She's wanted one for her American Girl Doll since I made one for her sister back in September.  I think this might be my most favorite project that I've done this year.  I like these little projects because it allows me to experiments a bit and take greater chances then what I'm willing to on larger projects.  For this mini quilt, I split a wool batting and tucked a cotton one inside the two halves of wool.  It gave it the stability of a cotton bat but the fluffy butteriness of wool... it was just awesome to quilt through.  Yes, I get excited about batting! :smile:  I also didn't use any templates and just freewheeled the whole thing.  I marked it sparingly but just to show spacing lines.  That process was also freeing and while not as precise as I normally like, was super fun.  I didn't want to stop quilting!

It looks so cute on the little doll bed! I like how you quilted down the white and let the aqua puff up.

Jschlender I think she really liked it and if she didn't, my sister and my mom were ready to "steal" it and put it in a frame and hang it on the wall. lol

Posyp Everyone loved it. So much fun to give something that will be used and treasured.

Bluebirdsews It was really satisfying. I felt like I could pour a lot into it without it eating up a huge chunk of time. I loved working on this project.
