FeaturesF053
This was Katy's first project. It is a doll quilt. This is a mother-daughter project to introduce Katy to quilting and sewing. She colored a picture and her mom transferred it to fabric. Katy chose all the fabrics for the border and arranged them. She also put in many of the quilting stitches. She was five years old.
