DOLL FOR ABIGAIL

My quilters guild is having a challenge for us to make a doll quilt to go with a doll or toy.  I had been thinking about making a doll and decided to make the doll and doll quilt for my new GD Abigail.  I finished the doll this past weekend and the doll's doll!  This is the first doll I have ever made and it took a while, but wasn't tooooo hard.  The clothes were harder than the doll (especially the pinafore).  
Here's the back of the pinafore.
I had to show you her pantaloons!
Abigail isn't even 2 months old yet, so she won't get the doll & quilt for a while yet.  I also plan to make a Raggedy Andy doll for Jonah and a Raggedy Ann doll for Abigail.  I just bought that pattern this past weekend.  But that will have to wait a while.  I have quite a few other projects that I need to get going on.

A dolly's doll! Love your rocker, my brothers and I rocked in one just like that one, then my two did, and now grandbaby Emmy does. I see what you mean about the doll bed in your header, they are similar, and very precious to still have.
Love the music on your blog, good golly, those are some great tunes!
Love the 40's music a lot.

She's a lovely doll, and her clothing is especially well-done. Good for you!

Your granddaughter will treasure her forever! She is a beautiful dolly. I still have the quilts and stuffed animals that my grandma made for me and I love them so much. They represent everything wonderful about my grandma! x

The doll is so sweet. Now if I was any kind of granny I would make one of those for my only granddaughter who absolutely adores playing with her dolls. I think the idea of a special quilt for the doll is a great one. Hmmm...maybe this Christmas. I just love the tumbler block quilt and your other projects. The fabric reminds me of Pennsylvania Dutch patterns.
