Back in November, I finished my first doll quilt and sent it in a shoebox, along with this doll and some other little goodies, via Operation Christmas Child, to a little girl who is known to God but not to me.
I just kept imagining the same kind of joy she'd receive from playing with her baby doll as I did when
I was a little girl. My grandmother made a baby doll quilt and a bed for one of my dollies.
I loved it.
Here is the first quilt I made. It's approximately 16x18" finished.
Pattern: my own patchwork design
Machine pieced and quilted, Janome DC 1050
All snuggled up for her trip overseas.
I sure did have fun playing with decorative stitches!
Dear Baby, I'm so happy you are now in the arms of your new little mommy. I'm sure
you're both having loads of fun.
Dear Little Girl, Please enjoy the quilt. It was a joy to make for you. God loves you.
