One of my favorite toys as a kid was dolls. Dolls, dolls, dolls! I was crazy about dolls. I used to love sewing clothes for them, crocheting granny squares for area rugs in their houses, and sewing bedding too. I am still crazy about dolls, but it’s more of a nostalgic feeling than an urge to play with them today.
I was drawn to the February doll quilt sew-along at Sew,Mama,Sew to make a doll quilt with Alissa. I bought these fabrics awhile ago with the idea in mind of making a mini quilt or a doll quilt. Perfect!
I quilted a frame on the inside of each square and in the border, and then I tried that sketchy stitchy applique method around the flower.
I am so excited to report that I finally forced myself to sit still long enough to read the instructions on how to install the free-motion foot onto my sewing machine. I even read the manual and did a little research on the Internet for tips on stippling. Does this count as using fabrics in my stash?
I noticed that the tension thread was off because the back isn’t as pretty, so I did more research today on how to tweak that too. I’m off to practice more!
