The winner(s) from yesterday's vintage doll dress giveaway: Sara ! AND Heidi ! With only two real entries, how could I pick only one? I will send both of you a set of doll dresses. Please email me with your addresses. (Sara, I know you're in the process of moving, so tell me where to send yours.)
And here is the doll quilt I just finished. I use the term "doll quilt" loosely here, as it was really only two panels of fabric, batting and binding. There was no patchworking or piecing involved. Maybe I shouldn't use the term "quilt," as to not offend real quilts.
The fabric is from this thrifted sheet. I used some vintage fabric for the binding.
This was my first ever attempt at quilting. It's not very pretty. There was some puckering along the way. (See the line across the back? And at the binding? And ...) And a lot of blind-stitch confusion. (If it's supposed to be "blind," why is it so visible??? Am I doing it wrong? I know not.)
Spenser was happy to see the finished product this morning. She has been trying to put her beloved baby in it for the past couple of days, pins and all.
