I asked Grace if she'd demostrate how the quilt will look with its new dolly owner and she was very obliging. Thanks, Grace! :o)
I'd finished the quilting on the baby quilt. Originally I was just going to do one set of diagonals as I'd done on the dolly's quilt but I felt it would be more secure with the second set sewn too.
Then I sewed on the stripey binding.
My helper is so used to holding the quilts up for me that we managed to get the photo in one take!
He even knew that I'd want one with some of the back fleece showing! Thanks, Douglas! :o)
Yesterday I had a ton of fum making some dolly's clothes for the dolly who will own the quilt. First I made a blouse - exactly like the one Grace has on in the second photo above. She loves that blouse so I hope the new owner will too!
Then a wee gathered skirt:
And a pair of pants - every self-repecting dolly needs to wear pants! :oD
I plan to make more dolly's clothes as they're just so much fun - and I can use those scraps of fabric left over from my own dressmaking that I keep "just in case"!
In the middle of all that making, I had to make another couple of bow ties for the new men we have in our choir. I have it all written down exactly what to do so it literally takes me minutes to make them.
There's only one in these photos but I did make two!
