My granddaughter's 6th birthday is coming up and I wanted to make something special for her.  I decided to make a baby doll quilt for her. (Now I need to get her a new baby doll to go with it.)  I think she will like it.  I made it with yo yos and quilted it with perle cotton.  I think I'm getting the hang of quilting with it now.  And I love the look of the hand stitching with it.

Looks like it's going to work just fine.

Lovely!  I like your bright colors and your base fabric and the binding are perfect.  Nice job - I like the hand stitching too!  Cheesy

That is gorgeous, I'm looking for inspiration to make my due in January baby girl a quilt and a crob sized quilt like this would be amazing, what a great way to teach colours too as they get older.

Amazing job, you should be really proud and I'm sure your Granddaughter will be in love with it.

I forgot to mention that I used my accuquilt go cutter.  It sure makes the circles come out all the same size.  My only wish is that they made an electric one!
