    step one: layout dresses and match their backgrounds. nothing is stitched and a blanket is behind everything to keep pieces clean and I can pin!

    each dress block a choice of three fabrics. tiny rose buds: yellow, deep rose and light blue. Dolly background tiny rose bud blue.


    Really getting excited ! Have to stitch each dress to each block .. as step one ! will make sure the dolly 's background is measured before cutting her block.

    You are creating an adorable quilt. If I had more patience
    & ability, I would try one.

    I've enjoyed watching your progress and indeed you should be getting excited .... I'd be excited all thru this one!

    Curious as to how big/small each of your outfits are?

    Do hope this is a keeper quilt for you! :)

    The doll reminds me of Betsy McCall. Do you remember her from years and years ago? This is just adorable. Thanks for giving that memory . My sisters and I loved her and caused a few tantrums over who got her that month. Mother ended up usually getting 3 magazines. Please post a pic when it is done. I do so want to see it.

    The 9 1/2 inch block is to allow room to applique, then to cut down to 8 1/2 . I am not sure what I will do after I hand applique all 18 outfits. Maybe that gives you an idea of the clothes size. The pants are longer than dresses. Some dresses are longer than others. I made sure to use each pattern as a templet for where the parts were to be laid out, colors, aprons, puff sleeves, ect.
    Dolly measures about 14 inches tall. Each pattern is hand cut from stash.
    Thanks for asking !

    And thank you all for your wonderful encouragement !

    Thanks Ell ... I was just trying to get even more of a visual of what it is like IRL!!! :) It's going to be even more adorable as you continue along. Take your time at each of the next decision stages re sizing and finishing, so you'll make it even more magnificent! :)

    Oh, I thought the dresses would just be velcro-attached to the quilt so she could play with it like paper dolls?????...hmmmm ...

    Still precious however you finish it .... You did a wonderful job on the dresses .... so detailed ..... I've watched you post them as you got them finished -- amazing ......

    Good job .....
