What materials did you use? Fabric scraps

Cyrille on craftsy.com

What are you most proud of? Her cute embroided eyes - I had no more dark embroidery thread so I used usual thread, plus I lost my favorite needles so I had to use an inapropriate needle, and last but not least: the last time I emboider was... long time ago. So I wasn't very confident and finally I am happy with the result :-)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? As for any paper pieced block, be careful with the fabric selection: the background has to contrast enough with all the other fabrics of the doll. And have fun!

I have a dear friend whom is turning 90 in March 2013. She was born all those years ago in the Netherlands - her nickname is Tulip and I am making her a quilt and love your designs especially this one ... I love paper piecing too. Thank you for your creative talent... This design suits this quilt and idea perfectly x Joyclyn
