one stitch at a time
Oh Julie, its just perfect! You are a great aunt! How darling the matching doll set is!
Thanks! Although the quilt was pretty straight forward, I had a lot of trouble with it. I had to number all of the rows after it was cut in order to keep things straight and I still ended up swapping two squares and didn't notice until the top was already sewn - oops. Quilting took quite a while too, I ripped out lots of stitches in the beginning because I couldn't get the stitch tension right - but I live with a button pusher who kept turning on the basting function and switching the foot type every time I stepped away. I don't know enough about the machine, or sewing yet, to recognize the problem right away so that took lots of trial and error before I finally got it sorted out. Plus I did the bulk of the work over a long weekend which took most of the fun out of it. I was glad to be done, but I do wish I had more time to sit and admire it before wrapping it up.
Beautiful! The doll set is a wonderful idea.
