Scrappy Doll Quilt
My daughter and her best friend decided to exchange Christmas gifts this year. Of course my daughter didn't tell me until after her bff had given her a cute winter coat and boot set for her American Girl doll.
Luckily I had a pile of scraps from a granny square quilt I am making and it was pretty easy to whip up a quilt and matching pillow for her friend's American Girl doll.
I just pieced the scraps together in rows. The scrap fabric is Lecien Antique Floral. I used Kona white every other row and for the back. I did straight line quilting on the white which was plenty for this small project.
I used my longer scraps to make the doll pillow. I didn't bother quilting it just pieced it and stuffed it.
They both turned out really cute and my daughter's bff was thrilled because she didn't have any blankets or pillows for her doll.
I did finish my granny square quilt top and I'll show it to you soon. I am hoping that Santa is bringing me something to help with the quilting part of it so I've held off on finishing it up for a few weeks:). In the meantime I've been busy working on a few pillows to match using my extra fabric and scraps. Everything is coming together nicely so I promise pictures soon.
I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!!!
