    OK here it is, I made this for Kathy N, she is my swap partner for April. I wish I could of done a better job for her. How ever I did learn to miter the corners, and once I learned I was able to finish it in 10 minutes. not like March which took me at least 6 hours. God bless. Penny

    You've come a long way baby! Now that you've mastered binding, you'll have more time for your beautiful creations. That little quilt is a stunner! Thanks for making the doll quilt swap look good!

    Looks fabulous! I love your fabric combination & my respect for the applique, haven't dared gone near that sort of thing yet! :D Thanks for sharing.

    thank you all very much. It is only my third project, 1 march doll quilt, 2 this april doll quilt, and the iris in the corner thingey. I know not a word, but I can't spell any way so I make my own words :D And ladies applaque is very easy, cutting out the little piece is the hardest part. Just go for it. I am learning all kinds of things with the doll quilts. but none of this would be possibale with out the wonderful ladies on the board that have sent me fabric,thread,books, 2 packs of batting, and ink for my printer so I could print things/patterns. God bless all of you. Penny

    It's so pretty. The leaves of the daffodil look so real and look as if they're standing out from the block. You did a great job.
