Guys, I have reached an important decision. I am giving up on the Doll Clothes quilt! There are two main reasons:
1) The person I am making it for (my sister) specifically does not like "country" or "cutesy" or "ye olde" type items. This quilt was becoming all that and a bag of chips.
2) I didn't like it any more either. The "doll clothes" thing was so far away from my original vision (which was just simple, modern shapes) that I was starting to hate it, and I didn't want to work on it. I haven't done anything on this quilt in weeks. Unusual! Usually I get a Hot Hair and work non-stop on my projects until they are done. This one was just blech.
SO! I am going to start over, regroup, rise from the ashes like a phoenix, etc.
I already have some ideas about how to use the fabric I still have for this quilt (I do still like the fabric I got) and make something much more appealing. Something a lot more like this:
UPDATES TO COME!!!!!!
