Doll Quilt SAL: An update!

Since my last post about my progress on the Doll Quilt SAL I am taking part in which is being hosted by Katrin at Cattinka, I thought you might like an update of how things are going. As I mentioned last time, we are not allowed to share our finished quilts until the end of the sew-a-long. Then, on 29th February Katrin will be holding a 'Show and Tell' of all the finished quilts but, in the meantime, we are allowed to share our progress to date.



You may recall, I decided to make the sweet little doll quilt that appears in the book 'Red Home' by Natalie Bird and, I had started work on the embroideries and chosen all the fabrics.  Well, the little embroideries are all finished and trimmed up ready to be pieced together.



The fabrics have also been cut ready to piece together and a layout has been decided upon.



I have even managed to get some of the piecing started.


Now I just need to get the rest finished before the deadline!
