Doll Quilt

doll quilt pinkOnce upon a time I made a very pretty quilt for a very pretty little baby girl. It doesn’t seem that long ago but that little girl turned one a while ago – how time flies!

But now beside her white cot there is a tiny white doll crib – the old fashioned kind that rocks. So Mummy J asked me whether I might have some scraps of that pretty quilt fabric left to make a doll quilt.

Luckily, although I used some to make card holders, I do still have some left. Here’s the tiny doll quilt I made last week.

Looking back at this quilt has reminded that I had planned to write up the instructions for a tutorial. I must add that to my “To Do” List again.

What have you made lately? Any little gifts for little friends?
