A finish is a good thing, even if it is a small finish

This little doll quilt is ready to go in the mail for its new owner. The pink squares were all 2 1/2" pieces. The blue beside each pink square came from a bag of 1" strips someone gave me at quilt guild. I don't remember who. The inner border is scrappy pinks and the binding is also scrappy pinks. It continues to amaze me how many quilt tops (and quilts) I make with pink in them when I don't recall buying any quantity of pink fabric. I do keep it separate when it is given to me so maybe that is how I end up with so much.
It looks like a busy week ahead so it remains to be seen how much sewing gets done. I have a test quilt with an August 14 deadline so I suspect that will take up any stitching time I can find. Piecefully, Joanne

  1. A lovely doll quilt. I love small quilts, and have made lots of them. So nice to get something finished.

  2. Some child will love the doll quilt! In my sorting of scraps I ended up light on pink. I think I have some more in the scrap pile, just not cut yet. Every time I inventory my stash, I am surprised at how many colors I don't have. Visiting from Oh Scrap!

  3. What a pretty little finish this is! Really like those colors. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!
