Dolly and Me

Dolly and Me BOM
Block 2.
98% of this block was finished before I went into Hospital last week.
I am really enjoying making this one. Lily loves to see what the
block looks like on the pattern before I start and is constantly
by my side when I am putting it together.  It is like we are
making this one together. So much fun.
Lily picked which girl got what coloured bikini.
Then Lily picked what dress went where.
The dresses are supposed to have Velcro to hold them in
place and be swapped (or in reality lost!) so I have slip stitched around
 the top and to the arms to hold them in place.
They hang nicely and can be lifted to see their bikinis!
And here is the finished Block :o)
I added some button detail to the dresses and flowers.
They are missing their eyes at the moment as I cant find
small enough ones. If all else fails I will embroider them on later.
OK my scale is off but here is how Blocks one and two will be
positioned on the finished quilt.
Lily and I are both looking forward to the arrival of Block 3.
Enjoy your Sunday,
hugs Sharon and Lily.
