Doll quilt

Recently, while waiting at my dentist's office for the opportunity to spend an ungodly amount of money, I was perusing a copy of Conde Nast Traveler magazine and happened upon a photo of a very cool hotel in Beijing, China. The Opposite House has a wall in the lobby that is a contemporary interpretation of Chinese apothecary chests.
(This picture isn't as good as the one from the magazine, but it's the best I could find online.)

I decided to try the design in a doll quilt, using colors in the aqua/blue/green/tan colorway. I added navy blue buttons in each block. This was the end result.

And, like everything else I've been making lately, this has been shipped off to a swap partner. :)
