the isabella doll & quilt!!

Last week I was able to finish up the sweet quilt for Isabella. I'm so happy with the way it turned out, and it was so nice to wrap it up and finally be able to give it. Thanks so much for all the sweet comments on my previous post and letting me know I'm not the only one that has taken so long to finish a quilt. :) It sure makes it that much more exciting when it is done and you are able to gift it!!

Here it is in all it's happy glory!!

For the binding I used Leciens white pin dots on pink!! It almost looks like a solid from a distance.

For the backing I used Tanya Whelans, Picnic Rose in blush.

All wrapped up in pretty Sandi Henderson's, Meadow Sweet, Daisy Path in blush!

I had to include this oh so cute picture of Isabella!! Doesn't she look so adorable!! My sister in law, Katrina, made her the cute little tutu and head band!!

On Friday, I made this sweet little doll for Isabella!! I have so much fun making them and just couldn't resist whipping one out!

For the apron, I used a vintage handkerchief again!! I think this is a new favorite for aprons!! It adds such a sweet simple touch that I just love!!

She was inspired by this sweet doll I had seen on Pinterest!

Isabella was so sweet and kept giving the doll kisses after she opened her!! :)

Happy Monday to all my sweet friends!! See ya soon!! ;)
