    oh my. I let my dd pick out her own fabric for her baby doll Joys play quilt that we are making. Little did I know what kind of fabric she would pic out. I tried to steer her to fabrics that would work together. but she had to have the bright red one. I let her pick out five fabrics. 4 for the front and one for the backing. I got the block done now just for the boarders and to quilt and bind it. she has helped with the whole project. well as much as her 2 1/2 y/o attention span could handle. she is really excited about it. all but the backing fabric was FQ's that she picked out and she like the backing and it was on sale so I got a yard of it for her.

    the block is pp'ed and my first time doing it.

    Personally I think it is cute as can be and so girlish. I may borrow the fabrics for a doll quilt for my granddaughter. Love it.

    I wouldn't have picked those fabrics but once you have them in the block it's very pretty. Maybe she is going to be a designer!

    I think it is lovely! Good for you for letting her help out, she will like it even more because she knows she helped.

    the only fabric I would have picked out would have been the fairy fabric. I am not a red or pink person by anymeans. but she wouldn't be swayed to anything else. I am just glad that I talked her out of the 30's repro fabric in orange and brown.

    She has excellent taste. Your block is fantastic. Hope my first pp looks half as good.

    thanks. I am not sure yet. I hate how there are a lot of scraps and "waste" leftover. but it is really nice to not have to do all those angle cuts.
