Not much sewing going on here!

I'm still on a hiatus from my sewing room, but just had to share this quilt.
 I made this quilt a couple of years ago when this precious paper doll fabric came into the shoppe.
Here is a close up of the fabric itself.
I loved the vintage feel of the quilt and put it away in my grandma hope chest.
Now, my granddaughter will play on it!
The pattern I used was from Material Obsessions.

I have also finished all the buttonhole stitching on my wool applique project and have it basted for quilting.  I am still in the pondering phase of what to do though.  Silk thread and simple outline stitching may be the first step.  I plan to actually frame this one, as the designer suggests.
I would like to finish it up and get back to my goal of finishing up some UFOs and WIPs.
Just having too much fun holding our new bundle of joy.
