Underground Railroad Quilt Top

About a year ago I took a workshop with Kathleen Tracy through the Bloomington Quilters Guild of Bloomington, Indiana. The class was basically making the Underground Railroad doll quilt from Ms. Tracy's book American Doll Quilts: 16 Little Projects That Honor A Tradition. The quilts in the book are divided into the same eras as the American Girl Dolls and are sized to fit said dolls.

The class was kitted so I exerted pretty much zero creativity in the design of this quilt, which may explain why it's taken me so long to finish. Luckily my mother has a friend whose daughter is into American Girl dolls, so this quilt has an owner all lined up . . . which may explain why it didn't take even longer for me to finish.

It is very cute, but compared with the Darjeeling entry below.... well, I'm still going with the ombre medallion.
