    for my aunt's baby carriage

    My aunt has a wicker baby carriage with a life-like baby doll that she received as a gift from her daughter. I decided that the "baby" needed a quilt to keep warm, the pattern is "Wild and Goosey" by Bonnie Hunter. My first attempt at paper piecing. The blocks are 3" finished and the quilt finished at 17" x 21"

    That should put a smile on the dolls' face. So bright and cheerful.

    What a lovely little quilt! When I was a child, I didn't have much interest in quilts for my dolls. Now, I love them - and am certain that your aunt will appreciate such a beautiful one for her carriage.

    Thank you for the inspiration, also. I have several of the papers for this quilt printed out, but that's as far as they've gotten!
