WIP Wednesday - Week 27 - 4 Seasons Summer Sunset Finished

Wow wee! Thank you all for the comments in my last post. I'm humbled by the response to my blogiversary giveaway! Wow! I thought I'd get about 34 comments. Currently on 56.... Just for the record I won't be including Daz's name in the draw! I'll still draw it on Friday and comments on this post will be included too. Just wish I had one quilt for everyone to give away!

Drum roll please! I have finished my Summer 4 Seasons Doll Quilt Swap, yahhhhhhhh! I went from hating it, unpicking it, resewing it and changing the design, to loving it! I've titled it Summer Sunset. Australian summers are hot and being on the Western coast of Australia, we have the sun set over the ocean. Come to think of it I don't think I have ever seen the sun rise over the ocean. Never been up that early enough when on the eastern coast of our country!



Anyway, lots of stippling and swirling, lots of different coloured thread. These mini quilts are so much fun to do when it comes to the quilting. I really like the back too. So now I have taken all these snaps, I can bundle it up to post. I do hope my swapee likes it, her quilting is exceptional. :)

Oh I am so disappointed that I am not in this swap. I guess the only chance I have of getting a Helen-original is to win the giveaway!

This is so amazing. A true work of art. You say that your partner's quilting is exceptional, but I don't think that I have ever seen such impressive quilting as yours.

Well done - I hope you are really proud of this one!

This quilt just sizzles! Please add me to your two year giveaway drawing. I love the flying geese quilt. I've only recently found your blog, but your colors and quilting really speaks to me! If I should be so lucky as to win (have to stay positive) I will be away until 8/10, but will check in then. Thanks again.

Oh wow that's a gorgeous sunset quilt! Perfect quilt for the theme too. I'm sure that the recipient will love it. :-)

I once saw the ocean sunrise on the US east coast in Florida. (My husband had woken me up early at 4am so that we could catch it.) It was subtle and beautiful but I think that I still prefer the boldness of sunsets on the west coast ocean instead. :-)

Love it Helen, it looks great, I'm sure your swapee will be thrilled with it. (and I'm with you on the sunset versus sunrise thing, I try as a rule to never be up that early lol)
