American Girl Doll Quilts update, five and they are complete!

So this weekend I finished both quilts for Miss V's American Dolls.  I used the tutorial from That's My Letter.

I used yellow binding on Kathleen's and orange on Marie Grace's.  Now I need to make some sheets and pillow cases.

Now that I am finished with these, I realized that are much easier to make than I first thought.  I think it would be cute next Christmas to make some Christmas themed ones.  I do think I would maybe make the squares 4 inches and make them a little larger.

Miss V was so excited to see them after they were washed and dried.  It certainly softened the cotton up a lot.  I was thrilled that they didn't shred in the wash and fall apart everywhere.  If that happened I probably would have fell apart too.  It was a lot of work, but so worth it to see how happy Miss V is with them.

  1. These are adorable - aren't they easy once you decide on measurements/fabric?. Love how yours turned out. Thanks so much for your lovely comment on my bedding post. Happy sewing!
