Apples to apples

The owner of Wee Wonderfuls blog, Hillary Lang, is making a doll quilt wall in her new baby's room. I'm thinking it may take her a really long time to finish all those small quilts, and when your pregnant, goodness knows that you don't really have a lot of extra energy.

So, I decided to pitch in a bit, and make this small doll quilt for her, and hopefully add to her collection. I just finished it this afternoon and I've really had a good time working on it. Hand applique for the apples, and machine quilting with a tiny bit of hand quilting in large pearl cottons just to spice it up.

I guess I'll have to name the quilt "Apples to Apples". I can post the apple pattern if anybody is interested...

I love your quilt! So smart to use the perle cotton for a little zing!

I'm looking for ideas to post for participants in a doll quilt swap. May I include a link to your page, or even your picture of your pretty apples quilt?


p.s. Apples to Apples is a fun, fun card game to play if you haven't tried it before!
