Doll Quilt Wrap Up

Well after 2 months of signing up and sewing, today was the big unwrap day for the EB Quilters of the 2007 Dolls Quilt Swap! 12 of us signed up, we all agreed to open on the same day for a bit of fun and I recieved Corrie who sent me this sweet quilt below. I love it! One figure is Grace and the other Milly! It is just so cute, I do have a weakness for wonky log cabins and Corrie's use of colour is perfect!


And she also enclosed a selection of yummy fabrics, thank you Corrie! The one on the very right, that's my favourite, definately inspiration for getting back into sewing the girls some summer twirly skirts.

And my swapee was Lily. I followed her guidelines of liking rasberry and lime green, well sort of... is pink rasberry? And I tried really hard to get it to a particular measurement, I'm an inch out on the top, but spot on across. So here is my effort, hope you like it Miss Romily!



And seeing as though it has been a focus on dolls quilts lately under the machine, I made this one for my neice Cate who was 5 on the weekend.

All of the quilts are just lovely! I love the softness of Corrie's, and yet the brightness of yours is delightful too. Well done girls, I wish I had the time to have a go, maybe next time!
