Dolly Quilt

Our granddaughter turned two this month, and I made a quilt for her "baby"

I tried to match (as closely as I could) the colors in the Honestly Cute dolly playpen we got her.

We celebrated on April 14 with burgers (and a vegan stew for the vegan granddaughter) and a Daniel Tiger cake. Everyone attended except our grandson (at Texas A&M) and our son-in-law, who was sick and unable to make the trip from north Texas. Our family isn't large but we have a good time together!

Our sweet little granddaughter grabbed the quilt as soon as she saw it and seemed delighted with it, which made my heart happy.

The back is a combo of a stash fabric and a very cute Cupcake Cafe by Laura Stone for Studio E.

I'm happy to carry on traditions. My paternal grandmother made me a dolly quilt in 1956 (yes!) when I was 8, and I kept it all these years. Last year I gave it to my daughter to keep for our granddaughter.

Papaw and granddaughter!
