Oh! The feeling of a job done!! Babydoll's quilt is finished. She is delighted. She has waited longer for this quilt than for anything else in her little short life. I started the quilt in September of 2005.
This quilt is made of all of Babydoll's infant dresses in sample blocks I was learning in my quilting group. I thought it had been my very first quilt until yesterday, when *gulp* I uncovered a UFO older than it. Wait til you see IT. Stay tuned.
Back to the present accomplishment. This poor quilt. Not only does it suffer from amnesia, but it *fell asleep* in a window for many months and has a faded back. It also was the most unfortunate placement for a leaky red pen, again, more scarring on its backside.
The work has always been a family affair. I enlisted a cousin and Cutiepie to do some pinning, cause, heck, I didn't know what I was doing.
Babydoll knew early on this was her blanket and quickly posed on it before the pinning took hold.
And she again posed for the camera. Two years later. The difference between toddler and schoolgirl.
Today, the schoolgirl in Babydoll offered her hand at final touches.
