Grey+Orange Doll Quilt

I wanted to work on some new quilting techniques before making my DQS8.
I started to put this together last week, the same day that my computer crashed.
I got about 2 inches from the bottom of the quilt, when I ran out of thread. I guess i underestimated how much pebbling would take!
This was my first time doing applique circles, and free motion quilting a doll quilt.

A close up of the pebbling. This was so much fun to do, and my stitches turned out nice when I got into the motion of it.. (next time I wont do this when the kiddos are awake!) My bobbin kept giving me problems, and broke at least 4 times.. I just need to practice more with my tension and such..
Here it is all finished up.
Made with orange cotton scraps and upcycled grey linen. It measures 13x17.
I already want to make some more for 'practice'..My sewing room wall looks bare with only one doll quilt hanging up!

Love the orange/grey combo! You should definitely make some in other colors and hang them as a grouping.
