Out of the cupboard

 Just a little quit I made 20 some years ago. I recall I started this for a doll quilt for DD but it got too big. I think it was also one of my first attempts at free motions quilting. Looking at it close I had a flash back of practicing a zigzag free motion and moving the fabric back and forth with each stitch of the machine. I stitched around the flowers and foliage so there are some zigzags. I still love that print and it reminds me of DD in her toddler years.
The dress I sewed for her had little angel ruffles and a ruffle at the hem, it buttoned in the front and had little matching bloomers. I made the same pattern with 2 or 3 other floral prints and larger sizes.  Cherishing the memories. --Ann--

Aren't those memories fun?
