scrap doll quilt

I've been working on this scrappy doll quilt off and on for a few weeks.
I would just sew the pieces at the beginning and the end of chain sewing other projects. In no time I had 2 strips of 'coins'.  The strips are about 2" X 18".
I wasn't really sure what I was going to do with them.
I am a messy sewer sometimes. While I was moving one pile to another...I layed the strips on a very large stack of 'to be folded' fabric.  A few days later I looked down and realized they were laying on a Moda turkey red from Lumiere de Noel fabric line. I decided that was the solution. I cut a few strips and created this little one.
Now to quilt it...hand quilt? with pearl cotton, or machine? not sure yet. I'll let you know soon as I decide.

I like making doll quilts, great use of scraps and good practice. I have hand quilted mine, but will machine quilt too, I need some free motion practice.

I love it! The red really makes it look great. Glad I'm not the only one who make a big mess of the sewing room.
