More stash busting, this time for a girlie girl we love named Jocelyn, who just turned seven. I'm told her American Girl doll needs a cozy place to sleep so this set will be put to good use right away. The charm pack du jour is Hoopla by Moda. I have really loved putting these quilts together. They make a special and useful handmade gift but are not a huge investment in time or materials. You probably have what you need on hand to make a set at any given time given a couple of evenings notice.
The blue on white swiss dot fabric just keeps on giving. What a great thrift store find that's been. I used it here for the backing and also for the pillow. And I still have a few more yards.
I think that's all the doll quilts for now. I have another top pieced together from the Magical Endless Box of Charm Squares, but no end user in mind for it yet. And I have acquired much quilting knowledge. I have now installed and used my walking foot (thanks to this helpful tutorial) and am comfortable with square corner binding. Baby steps.
