A Doll Quilt for Ava

It's Ava's 6th birthday this Friday.  I knew I wanted to make something special for her.  I settled on a doll quilt.  I love dots and incorporated them into many of the aspects of this little quilt.  I started with the fabric.  The background fabric is little dots.  Most of the yo yos are made with different polka dot fabrics.  I sewed them to fabric in a grid pattern.  Then I sewed the grids with perle cotton.  I used a different color thread for each one.  I ended with a colorful striped binding.  I love the way it turned out.  I hope Ava likes it.  I think I need to get a new baby doll to go with it!
