dots and checks and dresses!!! oh, my!!!

13 December 2009

once upon a time there was a girl named dorothy.
although she loved the farm life, she longed for something more.

she was tired of hanging out with farm boys…she wanted a man…
...to be the misses to someone’s mister.

“how am i ever gonna find a man in this played out checker dress?” she pondered.
and then it hit her…

"i’ll go see the wizard of aaah’s!!!"
"she’ll help me spruce up my dress collection, in turn sprucing up my love life.”
*hopefully*

♫ “i’m off to see the wizard, the wonderful wizard of aaah’s…” ♫

the wizard of aaah’s designed 12 spectacular dresses for dorothy.
and of course they ALL matched her amazing red shoes.
hi-5!!!

feeling confident in her new dress she decided to stroll through the park.

and there he was...

mr. perfect was standing in her favorite spot…
the little bridge she'd always came and pondered things at.

he gave her a smile and a hello.
he was tall, handsome and had an irish accent.
score.

she meet & instantly fell in love with mister connor o‘ banion.
*swoon*

the rest is history…she became the misses to his mister.
and they lived happily ever after…in ireland.

Absolutely adorable! I might be interested in a kit - what size is this?

Linda said...

This quilt is beyond cute. Just adorable. It is my favorite of the dolly blog series. Will you have a pattern maybe? I don't think I would buy a kit though because I would need to adjust for a bed size, I think. Just awesome, Rachel!!!

I wouldn't make the doll dresses, but I love how you're set them with the large pieced square blocks - and those four non-corners (what would you call them?!) are spectacular! I could see this quilt as featuring a wonderful large-print fabric. I love it.

Rachel,
I love that fabric pile...I don't have any little girls to make any cute dress quilts for but would love a fq bundle or even a half yard bundle. Is it one particular line? Please let me know...
