The doll quilt (http://uklassinus.blogspot.com/2008/02/corners-cars-dogs-and-dolls.html) is finished. My first attempt at a quilt is complete. This is a day that I thought would never come.
Ok, so this might be considered a little bit too much fanfare for a quilt that's probably only about 2 foot long, but I've been intimidated by the idea of quilting for a long time. It turns out that, if you use plain square patches, chicken out of fancy quilting and settle for just stitching in the ditch and make a quilt of such tiny wee proportions all for a little girl too young to notice any imperfections, well, then, just maybe, it isn't too hard after all...
I hope K likes it - she's getting the doll bed (from Ikea) and quilt for her birthday next week (photos sneakily taken behind closed doors on her bed as the little toad has pulled all her toys out all over the floor...).
Here's the back and binding:
Translation of the day:
UK English: bash on = to press on, to keep struggling in the face of adversity
US English: bashing on someone = picking on someone
The best part is, I get to avoid trying to find something for K in the pink glittery aisles of the store. So far she's like her mum and hasn't shown too much interest in that stuff. I hope that continues, as I think I might be allergic to the likes of Barbie...
