Doll Quilt
By Ashley, doggedknits

Ashley created this quilt for the Doll Quilt Swap. It measures approximately 18″ x 24″. She writes, “The quilt’s of my own design, although its creation and fabrics (a mix of cotton & linen–many from Sew,Mama,Sew!) were inspired by various Japanese craft books.” See more views of the quilt and more of Ashley’s beautiful work in her Quilts photo set.
