With a huge long list of things I wanted to make before our holiday, these fat quarters quickly rose to the top of the pile. Dolly needed a quilt. So Mia "helped" pick some coordinating solids. Despite pinning lots of more complex dolly-quilt ideas (on my new Pinterest board), I ended up with just straight forward squares but I ran out of time/inclination to get it finished before our holiday... that was back in August. It has lain on my sewing table since then but I was reminded of it this morning when Mia tried to tuck dolly in with her own, somewhat larger quilt. It took me literally 10 minutes to finish this quilt off. 10 minutes! Why on earth did I wait?

Since our holiday it has been used to protect Daddy's tablet (how masculine), as a shopping bag for pretend food and just generally abused in the way only a toddler can! It was only when I pulled it out this morning to photograph it [finally] that I realised I had never sewn up the opening in the lining... now I've done that too!
