Doll Quilt Swap No.10


I could really get used to this finishing quilts malarky!!

Right at the last minute I decided to do more hand stitching in the palest grey border. I'm really pleased with the outcome, it was so much fun working out the pattern (simple though it is), stitching, then seeing that idea come to life! I'll be doing more of this for sure.

So there we are, another DQS finished, well except for the receiving bit of course!!

Time to get excited about the one I'll be receiving! Time to go back through the Flickr pool and work out which ones have already arrived at their new home and which remaining ones I hope would come to me, and boy are there many of those! I love this swap, 200 odd likeminded people, across the world, making a mini quilt for each other! Amazing!

Next, Lynne's block! Yay for more wavy piecing! Then to start the Down Under Doll Quilt Swap, looking forward to that one.

Cheerio for now,
x Mandy

This little quilt is going to make somebody very happy!!! It's just so beautiful. The thin teal border adds an extra dimension of sparkle, the pinks in the middle are so dreamy and the stitching is inspired.

I commented before how much I love this quilt of yours - the colours are wonderful and the bit of blue really makes the purples shine and the "extra" stitching" really adds another dimension. All over loveliness!!!
