I wanted a fun, quick quilting project in between some of my other larger projects. After seeing some of my friends post pics of their little girls with baby dolls on FB, I decided to make some doll quilts to give them.



These 2 are for a couple of sisters who are about 3 and 5. Their mom said they like pink, purple, and lime green. I sketched up a quick pattern and got to work, fussy cutting some pink, purple, and green squares and cutting up my neutrals/low volume fabrics for the background. I used 3.5 inch squares so the finished quilts are 15" x 18".




I completed these in 2-3 sewing sessions and it was a super fun project to work on something fun and  get the creative juices flowing again!

You are so generous in your gifting of your lovely quilts!

I love how you can call these "small" projects and get them done so quickly! Grin

Again, you have a great sense of color, placement and proportion in your quilts!

Fabulous! The stars interconnecting like that is super rad.
