I tend to take my daughter with me when I go fabric shopping. Now usually she is napping on these adventures....but on one of our trips she decided to stay awake for the event. As I was taking my time browsing fabric (looking for nothing in particular) my sweet baby girl decided to do some shopping of her own. She became very enamored with this purple dot fabric. Purple is a color that for some reason I do not ever pick up....but that cute face combined with her excitement of finding something she liked, gave me no choice but to buy it. With that said, after finishing my quilt the other day, I was really itching to do some more sewing, but not really ready to start another big project.....so....
another doll quilt was born. My daughter anxiously awaited her new quilt, coming over to check on it's progress periodically. As soon as I finished it, she snatched it up, ran to her bedroom and put it into her doll's cradle. I couldn't persuade her to let me take it back out to photograph....so I had to make do and take pictures of it in the cradle (although she did let me adjust it a bit so that is wasn't so crinkled up).
To my surprise, I love the way the purple dots look combined with all the other fabrics. I also have to admit that I love the pillow even more than the quilt!! I think my daughter feels the same way since she has been carrying the pillow around the house for the last few days.
Baby also seems to be quite happy with her new quilt! It didn't take Izzy long to find baby and snuggle her into her new quilt for a nap.
