I mailed off the doll quilt swap to my partner and she got it yesterday so I can now show you the whole thing, not just a corner. I know that I was a tease! Sorry.
I really tried to do some nice quilting but I'm definitely challenged in that regards. I did some sort of circles in the solid squares; I did waves (sort of) that intersected on the borders.
In this picture you get a better look at the quilting. I think the blue I used matched the fabric so perfectly, that you can't see it. In the individual blocks, I used a tan thread, which shows up. I think next time I won't try to match the fabric so well.
My recipient was happy with her quilt so that makes me happy.
This pattern was from the Temecula book, Quirky Little Quilts. I did the sew-along this past month and decided that I loved it so much I'd make it as the doll quilt swap.
TADA!! Thanks to Lori (humblequilts) for organizing this swap again!
It turned out really cute!ReplyDelete

I love it! I can't really see the quilting, but overall it looks great! Really pretty!ReplyDelete
Love your doll quilt! I participated in the swap and used a pattern from the same book. I used Prairie Patches. Can't wait for Lori to have our linky party!ReplyDelete
