Shyla's Doll Quilt

When you are a Grand Aunt like I am you want to spoil these kiddo's rotten and let them do fun things.  Well while recovering from my surgery I am staying at a neices house. Lots of family has been visiting and Shyla wanted to make a quilt for her doll.
I had her pick out the fabric....which was already cut into scrappy strips and away we went. This particular neice is a thumb sucker....and they are trying to get her to stop. Well I told her she could sit on my lap and help if she didn't suck her thumb..... I gave all of the appropriate lectures of warning.....but ....that needle went into her finger so FAST !

If I had just let her suck her thumb her hand wouldn't have been any where near the needle....Darn it !

Needless to say the Grand Aunt Guilt sunk in rather quickly....and what was going to be a small doll quilt is now a "huge" doll quilt. But I hope she will use it for more than a doll quilt which I'm sure she will. It measures 36 X 40. I think she did pretty good picking out the fabric.....What do you think?
