    WIP fun dolly dress quilt

    I love making these little dresses.. they are so fun.. I have found the size quilt is great for a toddle to grag around and cover up their won dolly. each block is finishe 8 inches.. the multiple strip border is 4 inches.

    each dress is about 6 inches "tall"

    blue tape holding pieces together at this point. I have made 4 now ... and friends are asking for them ! YEAH ! What fun to play dress up !

    Super, super cute. I would love to make one, but refuse to make any baby quilts for fear it will cause grandchildren.

    I have made two quilts from Brandywine's Dolly Days.. I use the pieces and parts of the patterns now.. and have been able to make my own too.. scanning through children's web pages for outfits that i can intrepret. Using stash has been fun.. I add no beads or buttons.. want it to be toddler friendly.. Thanks for the post !

    Oh so cute. I too love making the little dresses. Completed my "Betsy's Closet" top this week, and have also done Dolly Days top. Having to use a lot of self control to keep from investing in a fabric line called "Cape Ann" by Moda which has cute little outfits in the fabric.
