A Doll Quilt from Peggy in Georgia

Another swap on Quilting Board, and the theme was "Show us where you're from."  Peggy made this lovely Southern Belle gazing out over the landscape.  The lines of quilting over the fields converge at a point on the left of the picture, giving the impression that that is where the belle is looking. 

Peggy very skilfully worked with the tiny pieces that make up the belle's figure and added decorative stitching to the dress.

The whole effect is very whimsical.  Peggy said that it reminded her of Scarlett O'Hara in Gone With The Wind.

Thank you Peggy for the lovely doll quilt!
