Summer Dolls Quilt Received.

Great excitment on Saturday, look what arrived in the mail, my quilt from the Summer round of the 4 Season Doll Quilt Swap! Daz actaully rung me at work to say something squishy marked "quilt/patchwork" had arrived, my first response was but the mail man doesn't deliver on Saturdays. But apparantly he does when a quilt comes all the way from Chile!

Veronica has done an amazing job on hand embrodiary. She wrote on the back of a post card that this is her first go at hand quilting which is amazing cause her stitches and the colours she has used are perfect.

And look at the back! She stitched Four Seasons Quilt Swap Summer 2008, Helen xxx, Austalia, Veronica xx, Chile. Thank you Veronica, its lovely!
