Dolly Quilt Swap 6!

Well, I could do it again - change my mind! I'm not sure my Recipient is quite this girlie? Never mind - I'll puddle along with this idea for the time being - it will definitely be a little wall hanging for someone!

As you can see, I have just let the fabric do the talking - I'll big-stitch hand quilt it with Perle thread and maybe then a winter white lacy knitted edge!

Check out my Sidebar and if the fancy takes you and visit Kelani Fabrics - I'm really quite chuffed to have stumbled across this shop - lots of cute fabrics!

Hope you are getting lots of sewing done this weekend - oh, Easter next weekend - that will keep us off the streets (that's an expression that means 'at home and not out shopping') - though we have the internet now, don't we!

It's gorgeous, Lurline. I'm sure she'll love it. We're all the same, aren't we? Always second guessing ourselves.

You went with your first instincts and they are 99.9% of the time the right ones. I ove it to pieces.

This pink doll quilt is very cute and sweet as well, but I think you made the right choice and sent the less girly quilt of the two. I do so love my new Doll Quilt, I already called two friends to come over for dinner to see it. I am trying to get them to join the swap as well and I think this will help.
