    A doll quilt for our great-niece

    This started out as a 'paint chip challenge' at my quilt guild. The three paint chips I chose were light green, raspberry and lavendar. I found a batik for each of the colors, then found the print to tie them all together.

    This is going off to our great-niece, Meghan, for her beloved American Girl doll.

    Hope you like it!

    My grandaughters just love their American Dolls! The quilt is lovely. I hope they keep it forever! I have a couple doll quilts my mother made that I just let lay around for years in the toy box and it's a miracle they are still here. It was so hard to grasp how nostalgic we would become as we age, huh? I've been careless with many things I would give my eye teeth for now!!

    Remember your mom made those to be played with not to be "museum" pieces. Watching your grand daughters enjoy their DQ's is just as important. I love watching mine wrap their babies (which are sometimes cows, horses, whatever)up with love and kind words.

    Leslie, I was wondering about the color seclections, not totally you. Now I understand and you've made a lovely quilt with your choices.

    Gladie, you understand too much about me! You are right, those are not normal choices for me, but I did enjoy working with them. I was surprised to see how light the green looks when combined this way -- it is not that weak appearing all on its own.
