Q&A with MamaPris

fay williams asked:
What size did you cut the squares?
MamaPris answered:
I think they're about 3 inches square. That's a guess... I can't remember for sure - but they were small.
Jody Lovdal asked:
I do not machine sew. Could this be done by hand?? Jody
MamaPris answered:
I think anything can be done by hand - but would be very tedious. If you want to make a dolly quilt by hand it would be better to pick a fabric that has the look of patchwork but is all one piece of fabric. Then you could sew the blanket (to pieces of fabric right sides together) - sew by hand around the outside edge, leaving an opening to turn it. Then turn it, iron it, and hand quilt as you wish. ~pris

so sweet,my grand daughter would love this
MamaPris answered:
Thanks Tracy. I made this for my "pretend" grand girl. (I don't have any grands yet, so I "adopted" a darling family with 3 little girls at our church.) I like the colors in this tiny quilt. :) Kate loved it!
