That was my first year participating in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, and our colors that month were brown with pink accents, or maybe it was the other way around - anyway, I was experimenting with four patches, and made these eight 8 inch blocks.
Even though I liked them at the time (and made tons of other blocks in all the colors throughout that year), I never could figure out a way to put them all together into a quilt design that I liked. So, they have been in my orphan block pile ever since.
But when I read Bernie's post about her Spread the Love, Quilting for Kids charity event, I thought I might be able to sew up a doll quilt for A Doll Like Me using these blocks.
And here's what I came up with -
Needing a center square for nine blocks to make an approximately 24 inch square quilt, I appliqued a pink, polka dot heart in there to add a little sweetness!
Some Kona Crimson seemed like the perfect match for the binding, and pulled all the blocks together.

And posing with a doll my mom made for me many, many years ago - she is Jo from Little Women!
I hope Amy at A Doll Like Me will have the perfect doll for this quilt!
Linking up with SoScrappy for ScrapHappy Saturday - even though it's not purple, this is still an RSC project!
