happy birthday ellie!

Ellie turns seven today and I turned it into a reason to make yet another doll quilt. The pattern is called Game Board Quilt from Prairie Children and Their Quilts by Kathleen Tracy.
Basia taught Ellie checkers and it's only a matter of time before she can beat me.
I added a pocket on the back with some extra flying geese to store the button gamepieces. There's a velcro closure at the top to keep the buttons in place.

Hey Ellie, king me.
