    Mikayla's Doll Quilt

    We had our dgd visit for a weekend. I'd promised her a quilt for the dolly bed grampa made her for Christmas. I put together the quilt sandwich (spray basted) and then let her arrange the precuts how she wanted them. We stuck them with a dab of gluestick. She waited very patiently while I machine quilted (practice, practice, practice) and while the thread gave me issues. While I squared it back up for the binding, she sat at the machine and pretended to sew -she's such a little mimic!

    Sew Sweet, your DGD! Beautiful eyes. Great idea on having her input for the quilt. Did you get a photo of the doll bed?
