|First February quilt|
|Too many leftover paperdolls/clothes--second February quilt|
|Second "envelope" almost done--will be buttoned to back of quilt|
Well, I had too much fabric left, so I decided to make another quilt. This one is larger, about 70x90. The pinks don't show up well in the picture--they're much prettier than they look. I don't usually work from the center out, but I did on this quilt because I was working from a picture I had downloaded from the internet. It went together easily--and I used more clothes! I decided to make a coordinating "envelope" pillow to attach to the back of the quilt so I could slip a couple of dolls with their clothes inside for the granddaughters. Unfortunately, the dolls were larger than the envelope--so it became a separate pillow instead! It is ready for the pillow form to be slipped inside. Another quilt in the longarm UFO stack!
And then I decided I would make a larger envelope which I will button on the back of the second quilt--large enough for 2 dolls with clothing! It's almost done. You can see the color of the pinks better here--the printed pink is the backing for the quilt. I have only 2 dolls that had multiple pieces of clothing that "fit" without showing part of the doll underneath on the sides or bottoms. I still have to fuse the dolls to felt and then decide how to get the clothing to stay on the doll--waiting for a trip to a fabric store in the nearest big town.
So, on to the next UFO Challenge! I'm glad to have finally used the paperdoll fabric.
