Dress update and A Doll Quilt

We finally chose yellow eyelet for the dress for EJ. Oy. Way too many choices. I have yet to cut it out! IS that bad? I'm sure I can get it done in two weeks. I just forgot how many, many steps there are to sewing clothes. It will be wonderful when it is done. So wonderful (I hope) that she will forget about the one she saw at the store and really liked.
I made this little doll quilt over the weekend just because. I like the red binding but not the print. Good learning anyway. I still have to hand sew the binding on. Just haven't felt the urge to hand sew yet. Inspired by this blogger who gives a great tutorial on doll bedding including pillows!!

Quillow for WH

WH had his 3rd birthday three weeks ago and I am finally finished making his quillow. I've had the pocket done for a while but no time to finish piecing the rest. He is getting some bright primary colors. He picked out the Miss Spider fabric. I wish I had put Miss Spider on the outside (visible when the blanket is open) but I don't want to unstitch it!
The pocket has a wiggly web sewn. Could not get straight lines and so embraced the wonkiness! A contrasting color might have worked better but he loves it so I'm happy. "Best Buddy" is one of his favorite phrases. Dad is his best buddy.
