My Birdie Dolls Quilt.

I have been so busy blogging all the dolls quilts I recieved, I sort of forgot to blog a finished shot of the one I actually made. I only posted sneek peak shots of it when I was sewing it as my swapee was the lady who organized it! The lovely Tanaya. I must admit I felt a bit scared to know that I got her, I mean she could have jigged the draw to get anyone and she got me! But she loved it and let me know when I got it too which was great. I read her preferences and thought birds, I going to go with birds. I had just gotten the bag of scraps from Sequana and it had in it the little pale blue with white spots fabric already cut in 3.5 inch squares, so I used that as a starting guide.


I had so much fun making this, it was so different to my usual colour pallette and cause I was so scared I'd make one too big, I made the below quilt at the same time. A smaller version in width, but the same height. I have just had some shelving hung in the sewing room, and there is a perfect gap on the wall where it now hangs.

I have to chime in and let you know that this quilt was really incredible in person. Photographs just don't do it justice!

And dear Helen, how do you know I didn't rig the swap so that I did get you!?!?!?!?

Your quilting is always lovely and I will treasure this little one forever!
