Originally shown as a doll bed quilt, I can see how perfect that would be! But, I enlarged it, added a batting layer because the white curtain was so thin, and chose applique fabrics that were good for storytelling but probably not as visually appealing for a doll quilt. Or, maybe they would be?
In any case, it's been a fun project, encouraging me to practice some rusty skills and learn new ones. This morning while everyone slept, I treated myself to a YouTube tutorial of the ladder stitch -- a brush-up I needed.
It isn't quite finished. I still need to quilt around the story circles. I learned to do this a few weekends back while "watching" a movie with the kids I've easily seen eight times. But this project has now been transferred to the hand-sewing basket, which makes it much easier to plunk away at. And it feels so good to work with on my lap -- such nice weight and coziness. And, there's no reason the storytelling can't begin whilst I quilt it!
