    Hi All....I am somewhat new to the group. I have been receiving the newsletter for quite a while now and every once in a while, I have posted a comment. I wanted to try and share a couple of pictures with you of the doll quilt that I made last week. The face isn't on, yet. I can't decide how I want to do it. I have already tried embroidering it on and didn't like it, but when I tried to applique it on, it didn't look right, either! If anyone has a suggestion, I would definitely be open to it! Hope everyone is doing well having a good week! Take Care....

    I don't know the size of it but you might use pigma pens and draw it on.

    I was going to say the same thing. Just draw the little face on. It should turn out very well.

    I agree, Pigma pens would be the way to go. Try it on scraps of the same fabrics to be sure you get the right "look" to the face, sometimes tone-on-tone fabrics don't take well to pens. By the way the quilt looks great. Is it for someone special?

    I would draw the face I want on paper, then transfer it to the quilt top & use a single thread of embroidery cotton to get a very fine look to match your very lovely work!

    I thought about this, but the fabric that I used for the body is fleece and it doesn't take the marking very well. The original instructions were for minkie. I didn't have any minkie and it would have been a week or two before I was able to get any. We live about 90 miles to the nearest place that would have it. Usually, I just order what I need online, but that takes time, too. You know, I doubt if minkie would have made a difference, in this case, either. Thank you all so much for you encouragement and help.

    Adorable! I like the blank face. You could add some beads if it isn't for a baby.

    As long as this is a wall handing I would use bits of felt glued on and keep these to a minimum

    It's for our granddaughter. I am going to make 3 more of them for Christmas. I can't make one for the one and not the others! I have actually been thinking about leaving the face off but didn't know if that would be good or not. Thank you, guys, for the input. It has really helped.
