I'm going to visit my granddaughter for the first time, she's only 3 1/2 months old, but she gets a new quilt and a couple of dolls.

I made her little sister (purple dress) and big brother (stars on his pants), and one for her adoring auntie so she can play along as well (gray dress). Auntie's is the only one with buttons, the baby's dolls have all sewn on bits.

These dolls are not hard, but I made so many mistakes, backward legs, mismatched arms, wonky sewing. You would not know I have been sewing since I was 11 or 12 years old.

Well, here they are. All from stash. And one of them posing with the quilt.

Those are lovely, cmarion! It's awesome that you matched them to people, and they have such fun, different personalities. The quilt is also absolutely wonderful. Your little granddaughter is going to be so spoiled (in a good way)! Wink The fabric streamer pigtails are particularly fun.
