Quilting Baby Dollies

"Once upon a time...
...there was a beautiful little princess...
...she lived in an enchanted castle."

Click twice on photos to see enlarged version.

The quilt top is nearly finished.  How do you like Lyla's Dollies?
And the darling princess backing, just adorable, isn't it?
The next step is adding border.  I tossed a few scraps (middle picture) beside the top to see how a simple mix of apron fabric blocks would look.  Decision made!  I'll sew a strip of 4" squares of the four different apron fabrics to make a colorful block border.  Once that is complete, I can sandwich the top, some lightweight polyester batting, and the princess fabric backing, and take it  to be professionally quilted.  The binding will be bubblegum pink with white dots, same as the base of each dolly's dress.  Finished size should be about 57"x39".
