I think I've caught whatever Hillary has.
No, I'm not pregnant. I'm talking about her doll quilt decorating idea. I've already told Hillary I may have to copy her. Now that Little isn't so little and has lost her tiny dog-filled room, I've been looking for a clever way to decorate her new space. Little toddler bed, big empty wall above it: what could be better than to cover it with small quilts!
But this quilt isn't meant to hang on the wall; it's exclusively for use with dolls, dogs, and a cat or two. A little valentine for my little valentine. She calls herself "Tsia" (pronounced tSEE-ah) now. Which isn't her name, but I like it and use it frequently myself.
We dug into the scrap bin for this quilt. Any piece that was large enough (2" square) was used, with no discrimination whatsoever regarding pattern, color, etc.. I was a little worried about the results with such a willy-nilly selection, but I think it's ok. And true to the quick, simple nature of doll quilts as per the Alex Anderson podcast, I didn't worry too much about matching corners and such. In the end, it was lots of fun and quick to make.
I like the way it looks when the sun shines through, too.
