WIP Wednesday - Week 34 - EB Quilters Dolls Quilt progress

WIP Wednesday, my favourite day of the week! My house is totally silent today, Daz has gone back to work, Milly at FDC and Grace at school, so the house is all mine! Promised myself some blogging time and a coffee and then I'll hit the machine. A dear and sage old friend told me yesterday that I should embrace these Wednesdays as my own as they won't be around much longer as the year ends and gets busier!

So I have two projects on the go today. Above is a sneek peak of my EB Quilters Dolls Quilt Swap. Just a sneeky angle shot. No one else has posted sneek peak shots yet and being a small group of quilters for this swap, it may become more apparant who my swapee is..... I'm really happy with how this has turned out. And will admit once I had the pattern traced onto my paper and all the fabric cut and ready to go, it only took a night of sewing to finish it.

I loved the pattern so much the next day I selected more fabric, in a pink and purple colourway and decided to make another. So maybe the rainbow one woun't be my Dolls Quilt after all? Maybe I'll send the pink and purple one? Or maybe I'll get inspired again and select another colourway? Oh the possiblitlies!

Here's were I am up to now. I realized earlier in the week when I was looking back at my old blog post about last years dolls quilt swap, the fabric I am using for the centre square, Corrie actually enclosed that in her package as an extra goodie. How's that for tying together the two swaps without realizing it? :)

I love the crisp white lines of this. I'd like to see exactly how you achieve this. Maybe you can put together a tutorial while you're working up the second one. ;)
