    So cute! I love it, Kelly. Although I am not into miniature dolls, this looks sooo cute! Surely, Uncle John loves it, too.

    WOW! It looks great! I thought with all those seams in that quilt that it would never lay nicely on a bed...thought it would be too stiff. I'm amazed. Your tiny tiny work is just beautiful.

    I love this quilt! I really like the 4.5 inch Kelly doll. I should make some quilts for it!

    Thanks everyone.

    Well the seam question is a good one. For the border it is the traditional 1/4" seams, but with the rest because of how it is pieced, there really isn't a "standard" seam size. This particular piece was done by Paper Piecing, but I have one I'm working on now that is traditionally pieced.

    Turtle and Twinkie

    It's just simply paper pieced. You reduce the size of a paper piecing pattern you like and just make it as you would any quilt! No secret or special skills. Anyone can do it!
