  1. Awww…that quilt is adorable and the orange peel is great! Not exactly meeting the corners is the way its SUPPOSED to look, unless you’re doing it for a show…at least that’s my philosophy.

    Definitely a winner. The audience for the quilt is not going to be critical, but it is cute!

    Honey, this could have been ME writing this post. I do not do random well either. My engineer husband tells me that there is, in fact, no such thing as truly random. So remember THAT the next time you are stressing over random! As for the nesting row thing, sweet mother of Betsy Ross I can’t get that right either not matter what I do. I have taken to labeling my rows ahead of time with letter beads and safety pins…sometimes that works. And sometime, not so much! Then there is that crazy technique where you never cut the threads between blocks when chain piecing and it all ends up as one ginormous spiderwebbish looking thing. My new mantra is from Debi Payne Designs: “Imperfection is a form of Freedom”! So there! Thanks for the post, your candor, and the laugh! I appreciate you!

    PS – the quilt is adorable and the colors are perfect for A Doll Like Me!

  5. It turned out perfectly! The child who receives your quilt will be happy to snuggle their baby doll in such a cheer! Curious is the perfect addition! 😊🐒

    I often mess up my rows when I take them off the design wall. Your doll quilt is really bright and cute besides the mess ups. Random is hard.

    You definitely have a win win going on. You get to practice quilting and some sweet child will have a fun quilt for their dolly! Who knows that little quilt might just entice a child to be a quilter someday:)
