I recently, along with a few others had the opportunity 
to help out and sew for Sarah Fielke
for spring market in the U.S., using her new fabric range,

I was asked to make a paper pieced dolly quilt from her new book

Below is the picture and instructions I was sent.

 This is the little pile of fabric that Sarah sent.
I have to say, that it is bright, happy and very sweet.
It would be perfect for a little girl or a big girl at heart.

Out came my special paper...

I needed my trusty ruler too.
(I have to say I think it is a brilliant invention)

It was very quick and easy to put together.
In fact, the piecing I did all in one evening.
It was fun to watch it all come together.

This is the backing fabric
and if you look carefully, you can see a tiny little star in the centre.
It's the beginning of my quilting.

It was such a pleasure to quilt this on my machine!
So different from the last few quilts I've done,
given its small size.

Here is the finished product.

I can honestly say, that if you are looking for a quick and easy
pattern to make in a short amount of time, for a little girl and her doll,
then this is it.
It really was super quick and easy too.
The end result was rather sweet, I think.

So if you need dolly quilts, then Sarah's new book might just be what you need.

(Thanks Sarah for the opportunity to sew for you.)
