    I hope the doll owner is an adult who can appreciate the hours of work and how gorgeous it is.

    What a patience you have to be doing something so small.

    Good job!

    I don't think I'd be sewing those .... looks more like my level would be a "cut and glue-on" project ...

    Way to go for tackling such a project! ..... Be sure to re-post the finished quilt....

    Bless your mom for doing all that tiny (tedious?) work for a doll quilt. It is going to be priceless. Lots more fun than I want to have, and I wish her all the luck in the world. Hope she retains her good eyesight and beautiful smile. She is really a dedicated quilter. :)

    I had to read this thread. My first reaction was...Is she crazy? I now know she is talented. Those are so cute. Please make sure we see them when finished and together.
