I have to say that I am having a blast doing this quilt! I have 8 blocks to applique and 4 are finished, so far. I cut off the backs of every little outfit, then carefully pinned the fronts in place, turning under a seam allowance, and hand appliqueing them down. It takes a lot of fussing with the frills and such and the little bloomers in some of the sets were a bit finicky to place nicely but I am getting there. I trimmed away all the extra bulk of elastics waists and such and have topstitched the yokes and around the necks under the collars so that they don't balloon out. I will have to do some *creative* quilting when I get to that point but for now I am pleased with the progress. :o)
And this one is all pinned and ready to applique.
