"Stressed" is "desserts" spelled backwards.

That is such a beautiful quilt.  I love the flower shaped quilting in the border and the embroidered message.  The doll is really sweet too.

That's beautiful.  I'm in love with the catchy colour combination.

Did you machine stitch all the free hand stuff along the edges? (there's probably a technical term for that but I'm not au fait enough with the quilting world to be down with the lingo)

Yes, you just lower the feed dogs on your machine, put the darning foot on and kinda draw with your needle by moving the fabric.  It takes a bit of practice though, I'm only just getting the hang of it!  Thanks for your nice comments!

I've done loads of free-hand stuff similar to that with my husky but I don't think I've ever seen it done on the quilt.  It really adds to the feel of it.

oh...that is so beautiful!! I am always so impressed when people quilt in patterns (i.e. quilting the flower shapes instead of straight lines) (I'm not a quilter so I don't know the terms, lol). And the doll is just fantastic. I would have loved her so much when I was a kid. Plus when she outgrows it she will treasure it because you made it for her.

So pretty!  Love the fabric and am truly impressed with all the detail and the matching doll.  Just precious!

Very lovely. I love the free hand quilting (the most I've aspired to so far is spirals) and the doll is so cute. What is her face made of?
