    This is the first quilt I posted on the site, it's my 4th quilt I ever made. I didn't have a pattern, I just wanted to make something my nieces could play with when they came to visit. The big pink envelope in the middle is to hold all the clothes in. I know corners dont match up, but hopefully the girls won't notice LOL! I confess I love playing with it too!

    I am refering my friend to this. She has some fabric she does not want to cut up, so this might work for her.

    Very, very cute. Wasn't it fun cutting out all those clothes? I had cramps in my hands for days after I finished but it was worth it. Your nieces will love it.

    Gee, I have fabric ordered to do something similar but the problem has been how to get the clothes to stick to the
    fabric. Had planned on using flannel. What did you do? Any help appreciated.

    Never saw that border fabric in all places I looked but quilt sure is cute.

    Me too, I want to know how your clothes/accessories are attached? I just took out my paper doll quilt fabric out of the washer and want to make a small quilt for my 3 year old GD. Her Mommy just got a new job and they will be traveling a half hour each way to go to her preschool on the way to Mommy's job. Thank you so much for posting. Linda :-D

    I don't know what she used but I used white flannel. I used Steam n Seam 2, or something like that, to fuse the flannel to the large cloth piece with the clothes then pressed. That way I cut them all out at the same time. The clothes stick really well to the dolls. Good luck.
