Here’s the finished Doll Quilt Swap 13 Mini! I decided to call it Sunset Star. I based my color choices on a sunset photo taken by one of my friends and used the 3 Layer Star paper piecing pattern by Mommy’s Nap Time.

I’ve had this moth wing print laying around for a while and I’d been wanting to try my hand at a word quilt. Match made in heaven? I think maybe: It needs a little beaded dragonfly? moth? fairy?
