Dolly Quilt Swap Finished!

My Dolly Quilt Swap is finished and it was a lot of fun watching it grow to the grand size of 22" x 17".

The little hexagon flowers are English paper-pieced and I then hand quilted it. I made the Suffolk Puffs with a Clover Yo-yo Maker. I found the yo-yo maker to be very quick and easy, though to my way of thinking not quite as neat as the old traditional way

My dear Mum (90 in October), who lives with us, doesn't want me to give the quilt away and doesn't understand how it could be swapped for another not knowing what it could be. I know who it is going to and I think it will be appreciated - hope so!

Am having a day at home today so will play with fabric - cold, but beautiful and sunny outside.

Have a great day everyone!

It's beautiful Lurline. Perhaps you should make another one, lap sized, just for mum.

What a beautiful little quilt! I can understand why your Mum doesn't want to see it go. I like Loulee's idea!
