    This is a quilt I made for a G-granddaughter's 5th birthday. I searched for a quilt that would be just right for her as she does love her doll babies.
    I made a few adjustments to the patterns, such as I made roller skates rather than ice skates, etc.

    I used 1930 Repo Fabrics, needleturn on the applique & hand quilted the blocks. The patterns are from the book : "The Ultimate Sunbonnet Sue"
