Doll quilt -Garden Fairy






Inspiration...from a magazine article featuring embroidery with piecing then quilted.  I don't embroider, but someday would love to have the time to learn and do so.  Instead, I thought well, what can I do...so I used a varigated multi-colored thread and stitched out the garden fairy followed by the patchwork,  added some borders and quilted some designs....still practicing my borders as you can see {used a solid very pale green backing}, but I love the colors and it was fun creating, love quick finishes since time is always short.   Have a great week sewing!
