The pattern is from Create and Decorate. The doll's name is Faith and she originates from Ashtabula County, Ohio. There is a little poem that goes with her. Each time I make a Faith doll, I put a copy of the poem in the pocket of her apron. Usually if I have enough leftovers from a quilt that I give to a female friend or my granddaughters, on their next birthday or the next Christmas, they will receive a Faith doll. Most of us live in NE Ohio, which is where Ashtabula County is located. So these dolls have a special meaning, plus they match the quilts.

Tamosher, I'll have to pull the pattern and I'll post it on my blog or back here in the gallery. It's really cute. I gave the doll as a exchange gift at our quilt retreat in Phoenix. The gal that got the doll was reading the poem and started crying. So I asked her why she was crying. She answered that she was from Ashtabula County, Ohio. Small world!!

My grandmother would make something similar to give to members of their church who were in the hospital.

You can now find the poem on my.sewingroom's blog.  The pattern can be found in the October 2007 Create & Decorate.

Thanks for asking.
