A Doll Quilt for Holly

DwellDollQuilt.with bed010001My great niece, Holly, just turned four years old. She has American Girl Doll Emily who did not have her own bed. So for Christmas, I ordered a cute white bed with roses on the headboard and footboard, then used Camille Roskelley’s mini dwell pattern to make a quilt for the bed using a charm pack and some yardage from Aneela Hoey‘s Hello Petal collection.

This darling bed came with some simple white pillows, which I covered with more fabric from the Hello Petal collection.

    Wendy, you are on a roll with your family members and special quilts! Your niece will love that for a long, long time. I mean, my 32-year-old daughter still has her American Girl Samantha doll. And it does not have a quilt. 🙂

  1. This is so sweet! I really like the Dwell pattern and it translated so nicely into a doll quilt. Your great niece is a lucky little gal! Visiting from A Quilt Story
