    I gave my niece her baby quilt on her 1st birthday. She has slept with "Purple" every night since. It is now faded and beginning to fray around the edges and I'm thrilled that it's been so well loved. With the scraps from her beloved Purple, I made her a doll quilt for her 6th birthday, which we celebrated today.

    OH!! :D Purple made a darling little doll quilt, for your niece. She is going to love it so very much. I would imagine that you'll not only find it on her doll, but also beside her in bed!! What more could a little girl ask for? Nice work, Auntie.
    :D :D :D :D
