Paper Doll Quilt - Finished 12/05/2012
!! PREVIEW !!
Pieced by Laura Mourning
Nov 03: Laura shared this photo of a quilt she is making for her granddaughter.
Nov 23: The quilt top is here. Will photograph when I start working on it.
Nov 28: Just posted my proposed plan. If this quilt were not so small and cute ... but it is small and cute... I am going all out. Plus I think this plan looks nice. Since it is for a prissy 4 year old we are going with Butterflies and Stars. The crosshatch in the windows is to keep that part of the play quilt nice and flat for the doll clothes. The Megan's Feathers sashing and simple star cornerstones are for why not? No stitching over the faces is Laura's request & I so agree.
Nov 29: Finally took some pictures of the quilt as I received it.
Nov 30: Prepped and loaded. I only get to do this quilt once so I am dragging it out...taking my time....getting caught up on other things I have been letting go.
Dec 01: Picking thread. Basted.
Dec02: I was checking over my IQ plans when I accidentally deleted my entire planning directory containing both of Laura's quilts. So I redrew them & figured out a better execution scheme for this one in the process. I also discovered this quilt has 65 sections to longarm. One thing is for sure: if I never start, I will never finish. Hmmm. I am really enjoying the less intense quilting queue and am taking my own sweet time.
Dec 03: Quilting. I can't see the stitching on the outer border. I hope the thread doesn't break or the bobbin run out because I would have a terrible time trying to find where to restart. LOL. The camera with dimmed lights can see far more than I can. Off to a good start. Finished first row of dolls which means from here on it is just repeats until done.
Dec 04: Quilting on... Lots of other things going on today. Posted a video of a crosshatch block being quilted.
Dec 05: Starting day 3 of quilting while the emails and phone are quiet! That didn't last! All done anyway. Better picture tomorrow, I hope.
Dec 06: Last photos posted.

and it was perfect all 10,698,000 times. LOL I on the other hand, have been busy working on the clothes for the little dolls. A good pair of scissors makes my job easy.

Absolutely perfect! Ray said the no sew around the faces make them look like angels. :)
