Doll Quilt

Daughter of COG and Miss T (Granddaughter of...) are coming in a couple of days. Miss T is very attracted to baby dolls and I have bought her one. It's a 12 inch doll and I bought a little push chair to go with it. I also bought a basket to make into a bed. I made a mattress and pieced a little flannel quilt. I can't believe the amount of energy that went into this little bed. I cut waaaaay more pieces than I need for the quilt, and carefully cut each animal patch, so the animal would be centered. It's cute in the end, but I'm not sure it was worth all the work.

Except I really enjoyed doing it.

I also made a little carrier like a Moses basket, which I'll post tomorrow. That took even longer because I had to figure out what I was going to do at each step of the way - the consequence of working with no pattern.

It looks charming! I have always been so impressed by your skill at this sort of thing.

As for Miss T, if not Miss T, she could be GOCOG, wouldn't she? How nicely palindrome-ish!

Wouldn't that be GCOCOG? Not a palindrome at all. What does GOCOG stand for?

Miss T is named after the poem by Walter de la Mare - It's a very odd thing-- / As odd as can be-- / That whatever Miss T eats / Turns into Miss T.
