A sweet pea dolly quilt

The lovely Vicki asked me to make a dolls patchwork quilt for her little sweet pea's 2nd birthday today. They had brought a dolls cot for her birthday and thought she would like a mattress, quilt and cushion to go with it.

It was so nice to work small scale for a change! I hadn't made anything for a while and enjoyed getting a bit creative.

The fabrics were just lovely as Vicki had the idea of using some of her daughters old clothes - a gorgeous pair of lined trousers  that she had grown out  - so I added one of D's dresses into the mix too.

A certain little lady in our house thought it looked lovely with her baby doll....she has already picked out the fabric for her one!

I was really pleased with how it turned out, mainly because of the gorgeous fabrics Vicki gave me and my favourite bit....

The little pocket that used to be on the back of one of the pairs of trousers, is now an extra special pocket on the quilt!

I am going to make a few more of these 'Sweet Pea' dolly quilts - in fact my little lady is calling me to start cutting already! snip snip!

Love the dolly quilts. Well done. Will knit some doll's clothes to go with it for the young lady in question, please let me know the measurements.
