OMG: January--Marina's Garden Quilt

I met my January goal of completing my doll quilt mini called Marina's Garden Quilt. This was a long-standing UFO project that I started years ago, fully intending to hand-quilt it. But then I decided I didn't like that idea anymore, and went for machine-quilting it instead. I used three colors of Connecting Threads Essential thread (marigold, mauve, French blue) and did a sort of wavy plaid pattern. I then decided to bind it using a Timeless Treasures crosshatch fabric in blue that I had bought for a pouch swap last year. The fabric almost mimics the quilting with its wavy lines. The backing was a low volume fabric that never seemed to work on the front of any quilt I tried, but I think it works perfectly here with the fabrics from the front. Here are some photos of the finished mini.

I'll be the first to say I love this little cutie! The wavy quilting and varied thread colors look amazing!
