One of the little girls for whom I made a baby quilt is now an active toddler who loves to take care of her dolls. She is particularly fond of tucking them in for naps. When I discovered this, I determined that I had to make a doll quilt for her upcoming birthday. Using Kaffe Fassett's African Striped Baby quilt as an inspiration, I cut the basic block size down by an inch and came up with the perfect measurements. (Click on the tags at the right to see previous quilts from this pattern.)
These are the fabrics I chose from the back, binding, and the two borders. My palette for the striped fabric was pink, brown, cream, and yellow.
Here are the striped fabrics.
The top comes together.
The center is quilted and I'm working my way around the edges now. This has been great fun.
