Dolly Quilt Swap 4 ... In Progress!


Swap Quilt Mama, Susan , would like a sneak preview of how we are progressing with our dolly quilts!

I am really enjoying doing this little cutie. I am in the throes of hand-quilting - some yo-yos have been made for the border, but I think I will need to do quite a few more. I have been using the Clover yo-yo maker and it is quick and easy.

I have been doing quite a bit of fabric-buying lately, so must try to add another photo to show you. Looks like that worked! Several of these are from the new Merrimack collection and the purple at the back is the border for my hexagon quilt. Naughty ... but good fun!
Off to do some work now, so have a lovely day.
