Doll quilt swap done and received

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!


  1. It turned out really cute!

  2. It is such a cute little thing with those tiny blocks.

  3. I love it! I can't really see the quilting, but overall it looks great! Really pretty!

  4. 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!

  5. Oh wow! Lucky Shirley! I know she will love it!!
