a simple doll quilt

i took a little break from my custom orders to sew up this simple doll quilt. if you've never made a quilt before and you'd like to give it a try i highly recommend this 'quilt as you go' method. you can watch a tutorial on it here. because i was making a doll quilt i didn't bother with the batting and simply quilted my strips on to soft white flannel. i used only scraps and ended up with a purple/pink theme. it turned out quite cute and i'm happy with it. young children can never have too many doll quilts. although my daughter would love to keep this one i will be sending it off as a gift.

i machined the binding on to the front and hand stitched to the back by hand
