I made this quilt at one of our Quilting in the Country Quilt Retreats. It was a very simple pattern. They had everything cut out and I just sewed the parts together. I actually finished the top years ago. I sent it to a quilter whose husband got cancer. She kept it a year. I really wanted her to quilt it because she is so good, but I asked for it back and got Kathy Wolfe to quilt it for me. I didn't want to quilt this one myself. It is really big and I didn't think custom quilting would go here very good.
This is a close up of the quilting. It's a little hard to see, but click on the picture and it will get bigger.
Here is a picture of the back. You can see the quilting really good. I will post a picture of the label when I get it done. This quilt will go in a pile to be wedding quilts for my grandchildren. I finished this in June of 2014.
This is my 6th Dolly Dress Up. I entered it in the fair and someone asked for the pattern. There really isn't a pattern. I used the ideas from the "Circle of Nine" book, "Dolly Dress Up" fabric by Holly Holderman and I designed my own quilt. You could make a quilt similar by using the "Circle on Nine" concept and any other fabric with pictures printed on it. I don't think this fabric is still available. I am considering another quilt with the same concept, but different pictures.
This quilt was made for my church calling on the baby committee. One of our congregation had a baby and this is the quilt given to her. We only have 3 or 4 babies a year so making a quilt for them is realistic. My daughter's congregation has 3 or 4 a month. That would be hard to keep up with.
If you look real close, the babies name is in the top red checked section and the year is in the top white section.
Just a close up of the corner.
As always a label. These Dolly Dress Up quilts are some of my husbands favorite quilts that I make.

The first part of the year I spent with Richard while we were unemployed. The second part of the year I spent helping Laura my dil who was very ill. It was not a year for quilting, but I don't regret my time spent else where.
