Challenge doll and a quilt

 I have been working on a challenge for my quilt guild. The theme is fantasy garden. I was allowed to make a doll so I did. I used Allsion Marano's Vernal Muse pattern and then put her on a base which I had glued flowers and grass and rocks. The yellow, red and green fabrics were the ones we were given to work with for the challenge.
 Side view sows her hat which was a Christmas tree ornament. She has little leaf wings. I named her Garden Fairy.
This is my granddaughter Mallorie's quilt that I finally quilted and gave to her. It was supposed to be for Christmas. Well, better late than never! I made the top from a flannel jelly roll and then the back was flannel too. Hard to quilt on my home machine but I finished.
