Doll Blanket

I had a birthday party this weekend and hadn't given much thought to a gift until the last minute. I just thought I'd run to the store and see what I could find. But Friday after work I decided to check out my fabric stash and make up a quick doll blanket. So I set aside my other quilt project and got started on this one.

 I found some great pieces.
 I decided to go with smaller blocks of 2 inches. I wanted a random pattern so I didn't use strip quilting on this one. I just cut all my pieces and started sewing.
The random pattern is more time consuming, but I really like the way it turned out.

 I usually hand stitch the binding, but because of time, I tried a zigzag stitch. I really like the way it turned out. The machine stitching will really help the quilt hold up over time.

Lilly LOVES the quilt! She recognized some of the fabrics from the quilts you made her and Toby when they were babies. What a sweet gift! Thank you, Lynn.

Really a pretty little quilt, Lynn. You do good work and I'm sure Lilly loves it.
