    I'm proud of this one!

Size:  621.8 KB This is a big sister doll sized quilt for my friend's granddaughter - I'm making a bigger quilt for the new baby. This one isn't perfect - I have a problem with mitered corners on a double fold binding. But I think I did a good job on the quilting. The pieced back was an idea from Oh Fransson! from the last quilt I made. I think it looks awfully cute here. It's not quite as oddly shaped as it looks in this photo. Phew!!

    Great quilt, you did a lovely job.
    What size strips do you use for your binding? It looks really narrow, I think I would have a hard time trying to mitre that too. Have you tried a slightly wider strip (I like 2 1/2"strip) It makes the corners much easier.
    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    It looks great! And the back is so cute, as is the quilting.

    Looks great!
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Nice job! I have a little problem with binding, too--I'm never totally happy with my corners Donna

    What a wonderful thought to make a gift for the big sister as well as the new baby. Sweet, colorful quilt!! I also use a little wider binding and find it is makes it easier to miter the corners. Good job!
