    I have had these mini sunbonnet sues around for about eight years. So, I thought maybe I would make my niece a baby doll quit to play with while she visits me. I plan on making a sunbonnet sue dolly to go with it and find a little stroller/bed (?) too. I never have anything for her to play with, so she plays in my pots and pans and kitchen utinsils. LOL!

    Here is the little quilt and pillow for her. Yeah! Another ufo finished and out of the closet.

    What a great little quilt! Pots and pans are fun too, but I think the quilt will be a big hit!

    :D Thanks so much girls! Those little blue and red squares were the first thing I ever pieced together by hand some 15 years ago. I hated it and it went into a drawer until I paired it up with the sunbonnet sue. I am seriously determined to finish everything this year I have had waiting. Right down to the minaitures.

    I can see why she loves her Auntie :lol: What a wonderful thing to make for her, she will love it guaranteed ! And if she doesn't wear it out playing with it she will always have it to hand down to her daughters

    It's great! I love the way you quilted it so simply, and added the lace and ribbon. It makes everything stand out. Lucky girl!

    I love working on small things, you can finish them much quicker and spend more time on the detail because the area is smaller and they don't use as much fabric. Not that that prevents me from buying more... :wink:

    thanks so much amma and Butterfli. Your right about the time for more details, parts of it were already made up as ufo's, LOL! She has always been the most grateful child, who wouldn't spoil her just a little?

    I have four summer tops ready to make for her and I will buy her some petal pushers to go with them. Can you tell I love her? She will be four in july.
