A doll quilt

Doll quilts are a great way to use up those little leftover bits of fabric. This one is a gift I made for a special little girl. I generally like to line quilts with recycled blankets, but in this case I had a scrap of polyester quilt batting that was just the right size. I backed it with some leftover muslin, machine quilted it, and wrapped it up with some tissue paper and a gift bag from my pre-used stash. Voila--a nice gift made entirely from materials I had on hand, no purchases necessary! The gift was more of a hit with the grown-ups than with the recipient, but I'm sure it will see some use in years to come.
