I love nesting dolls or as we always called them when I was growing up Babushka's. This was a very hard quilt to complete and took a long time. Each doll was painstakingly paper pieced using foundation paper.
The grid lines had to be measured and drawn on with a washable pen. The faces were drawn on with fabric marker.
Each set of three dolls has coordinating fabric.
The pattern called for another set of three dolls but 9 was my limit. I really liked this pattern and I love the way it turned out. But it was definitely a difficult project which took almost a year to complete.
I was saving this black apron for a special reason. I just didn't know what the reason was until I saw a Skeleton Halloween Apron. Fortunately I had some skeleton bone patterns lying around. A little felt and some iron on adhesive and I have my own Skeleton Halloween Apron. Happy Baking.
I am a full time working mom of twin boys. My passion is my children. My hobby is quilting. This blog is my quilting journal. I love to share my quilts and arts and craft projects with friends and family. After a long hiatus of taking care of twin babies and then running after them as toddlers I finally have the time and energy to quilt again. I love sewing as my sons sit beside me or play near my sewing machine. Who knew boys could be so interested in quilting.
