Dora Quilt for friend's 5 year old daughter
Well I finished the Dora quilt over the weekend. It is larger than the normal lap/ kids quilt. It finished at about 48 x 56. It is backed in a bright fuchsia pink fleece, no batting since the fleece backing is so plush it would have been too bulky for a little 5-year-old girl to drag around.
I only did sparse quilting to outline the blocks, just enough stitch-in-a-ditch to keep it from bunching when washed.
I plan to make another Dora themed quilt for my "niece" (my cousin's daughter) for her 2nd birthday which is on August 8th. I also have my SIL's B-day on August 3rd!
