Well it is time for me to unpin these two dolls quilts from the felt wall where they have been since I finished the binding back here. I must admit I had enjoyed just looking at them hanging there together. But it is time for me to post one of them to my swapee partner for this swap. I'm just unsure which one to post to her. She does read my blog, so I'm hoping that she will leave a favourable comment as to which one she prefers so I can post her that one.
And what is she going to do with the other one I hear you ask? I'm keeping it for Milly's wall collection. I liked in this swap to make two of the quilt, one to keep and remember and the other to swap. They are the same but different as well.
Quilt #1 with red binding. The nicer of the two in regards to the quilting. Simple echo stitching around the wonky flying geese and then just a few boarders of quilting around the outside of quilt. I quilted this one second and thought the simplicity of the quilting made the geese pop out a bit more? The colour graduation of this one is a little wonky too. Missing one orange on the left row of geese and so to make it even, missing one blue on the right!
Quilt #2 with pink binding. Colours both the same on both lines of geese. I took a crazy approach to quilting this one, just kept on doing an echo stitch around the triangles till I run out of quilt! I thought it looked too busy, thats why I went for the simplified approach on the red binding one.
Daz says I should choose to keep the one I like best and I will admit I like the red binding one best. But I am going to hope that my swapee partner pops a comment here saying which one she likes. So which one would you like partner???!
