Blogger's Quilt Festival--Scrappy!

I thought it would be fun to add my Paper Doll quilt to the Blogger's Quilt Festival in the Scrappy category HERE
It was so much fun choosing the outfits for each "doll"
The pattern is from Cozy Quarters
I did my own quilting---just a simple meander in the background and scallops in the skirts to resemble aprons. I repeated the scallops in the border. 

There were several hat options included in the pattern such as the scarf that is sewn in while piecing.

Some of the hat patterns I made up so there would be a little more variety.

Of course, the hats needed to be emblellished!

I think my favorite embellishments are the little flower clusters.

Some flowers are just small circles with tiny wedges cut out.

I tried not to use any of the fabrics more than once for the dresses, but many of the backgrounds are repeated.

The label on the back
