Kirsten's quilt top

Doll quilt top

My youngest daughter just got Kirsten, the American Girl doll, for her birthday. We decided a fun project would be to make a doll quilt for her doll (and for her sister's AG doll, Nellie). This is Kirsten's quilt top - it's pretty basic, and while the corners don't match perfectly, I think it's really pretty. My daughter chose the arrangement for the blue squares - I like that it has some of her in it, even though I'm doing the sewing.

Now for the challenging part - actually putting together the quilt, quilting it and binding. I've never done that before, yikes! But, never going to learn if I don't try. And, I'm working my way up to sewing a bed quilt for my youngest, as we redo her room into a horse theme.

are you just going to quilt in the ditch or do something fancy?
