Doll Quilt Challenge #1

Inspiration: (Book)-Amish Doll Quilts, Dolls and Other Play Things, by Rachel l& Kenneth Pellann, (Plain page 29 and Open Square Page 30).
DQC#1: machine pieced and machine quilted. Fabric Robin Pandolph-Flirt, Quilt Design-Kim Diamond. Thread-Superior, So-Fine-pink.

I enjoyed the challenge of using a palette of only two colors, other than the binding which is ivory the same as the backing. With all the choices in the color spectrum we have available to us this was a challenge for me. I'm one of those, who when I find something I like...I think well lets pick one up in each color. So I'm faced with, ok, I like it, should we create one in every color combination? Then what about quilt patterns, we could try different patterns on each quilt, oh and then thread color...the range. See how dangerous just a simple quilt can be for me....yikes...anyone else run into this "selection problem".

Scriptures to pray for the children in your life:
"Lord, let salvation spring up within my childfen that they may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory." (Is. 45:8, 2 Tim 2:10)

How beautiful. The activity, the sentiment, the creation and the overall joy that's felt by being here and sharing in the expression of YOU.

I am always in awe of the way you chose to quilt. This beauty is no exception. I'm smiling with a twinkle in my eye.

...Yes, fabric, one in each color. Shoes, one in each color. Books? All she's written because I need another book in case I run out. Weekly I have to fill this gaping hole. Worse than fabric.
