What materials did you use? Cotton quilting fabric with paper doll print, doll clothes print, flannel, Heat and Bond, some scraps

What are you most proud of? This was so much fun to make. The doll clothes were backed with flannel so the outfits would stick to the doll. One of the corner blocks is a pocket so the clothes could be stored safely and not get lost. And yes, I did have to play with the "paper dolls" just to be sure they worked, quality control is important.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Some of the dolls were close together on the print so be careful in choosing which ones to cut out. Within the print you may have the opportunity to cut out two of the same dolls and only one of another. I tried to get one of each. By carefully choosing the dolls I was able to get enough to make a second quilt, which is the blue one. This one did not have as many outfits available, but it still works.

I am in the planing stages of a paper doll quilt. I like your layout with the ovals. Since the dolls are different sizes, how did you decide on what size and how did you make the ovals. Any help would be appreciated. Ella
