A quilt for Josefina

Sew Mama Sew had a doll quilt sew-along in February. Here's one that I just finished for Josefina. The other's I've done I just stitched in the ditch to quilt them. My walking foot was a great help. This one was my first "non-practicing" try at strippling. I will tell you that upclose it's certaining not perfect, but I'm happy anyway.

What a cool tool! I am assuming more practice can make it possible to do more shapes, etc. rather than random curvy lines like women do by hand.

With a lot of practice!! It seems like years from now I might be able to do shapes well. I didn't do too badly on a flower I traced.

It looks great! Josephina will be one styling doll. I think I'll bequeath my own wee quilt to my Kirsten...but it doesn't seem to fit her as she is dressed currently. Do you have a standard pattern you use when you make their dresses? When I was a kid I made garments for my dolls by draping, but I'm afraid on a doll as big as Kirsten you would see all of the (ahem) charming mistakes were I to do that.

You are giving me hope that I too can one day do my own quilting. I think your first attempt is a wonderful nicely done job.
