1 done, 1 wip, lots of decor

I finished Olga's friend, her name is still being debated. Kelly likes Galina, Britton thinks Anya. I haven't decided. I love the colors. It took me awhile to find the yellow fabric, but I love it.
I did my first chain piecing.
f I am making a kartwheel doll quilt. I was inspired by this. I do like how it turned out. I want to put white around the edge, because I don't want to cut into the colors. I picked out my binding, but I haven't cut it yet. I think I am going to piece the back some too. I decided I am going to make a few doll quilts, to get better at quilting and maybe eventually to hang on the wall in my craft room.

I spent today decorating for Lindsey's party. I had bought all these puff ball things at work and spent today stringing them and hanging them up and decorating. I made a bunch of other stuff that turns out really cute, so I'll post it later.

I vote Anya. Anya is too original compared to Galina?! What? I've actually heard of the name Anya. Besides Audrey Hepburn's character name in Roman Holiday is Anya, which has to be the deciding factor right? :) Love the yellow fabric by the way! Where did you find it?

The yellow fabric is a Moda:
Pumpkins Gone Wild by Sandy Gervais, Moon Glow. I already read sewmamasew and have tagged the patchwork towels. I am also excited to have so many comments. I still haven't picked a name.
