9-patch Doll quilt pattern (freebie) by Kathleen Tracy. Just simple lines using Pearl No.8. I would like to try YLI thread one day. Many hand quilters swear by it. For the borders perhaps some fancier design as seen on the stencil. I am using a new batting and I quite like it. It's Tuscany (Hobbs) Heirloom cotton. Also with the help of a leather thimble and a finger cot hand quilting is a much more pleasant experience.
