Mini Finish

The Diva, through the insanity generosity of Gramma and Papa, will be getting an American Girl doll this Christmas.  This, for a child who firmly believes she's a boy...go figure!  Anyhoo, Wonder Mom (that'd be Gramma) is making clothes for the doll in question and I decided the doll needed a quilt.  Naturally.

I finished the flimsy a few minutes ago.  Hey, I'm having to pace myself since The Diva and I went out, against my better judgment, to Black Friday at Joann's.  Here's my finish...

I made it from scraps from the Christmas wreath I made.  It's wonky and imperfect and I love it. 

I'm linking up with the fine folks at Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Richard Quilts and Sewing by Moonlight for TGIFF.

Happy quilting, y'all!


  1. I avoided the Black Friday madness. How was it? The quilt looks great, and will be perfect for the new addition to your family!

    1. We didn't venture out until about 0830 so it wasn't bad at all.

  2. The doll quilt of lovely! Its grandparents job to be insane and spoil our children... I gave in on that one a long time ago :)

  3. I really like your quilt, it is so bright and fresh...and your rant above...I agree fully...the are not mini adults! Good for you.

  4. So perfect for the occasion! No Black Friday for is not my 'thing' on a regular day much less mega sales! Spent the day sewing and loved it!!!!! Hugs, Doreen

  5. It looks great. I too braved Joann's. It wasn't too bad, but I did score a great deal on batting. So that made me pretty happy!

  6. Nice little doll quilt! I shopped online only!

  7. Linked over from Richard and Tanya's. What a great quilt that is. I love that it's made from scraps from another project.

  8. Very nice quilt! Love the pattern and colors!
