EB Dolls Quilt Sent!

Well as Mands has recieved her quilt I made for her, I can post a photo. Her preferences were familiar, something bright and modern to hang above her sewing area. It was a journey as I did start out with a colour pallette which ended in this quilt. But then when I finished I thought too bright so I picked out these colours. Being the Mum of two girls as well, one can never have enough pink and purple in the house!

This one was also in the running but as I was quilting it two of the light brown seams popped out. The result of making my fabric peices too small and edges being too close to the foundation paper lines! Arg! I fixed it but it wasn't swap worthy so Milly will get this one on her wall in her little collection.

It was a great swap. Shall we do it again next year?

Oooh I LOVE this one Helen, the colours are just gorgeous! The purple fabric in the corner reminds me of the backing fabric you used for my cushion (will still has pride of place in the middle of my bed!) just beautiful.

I remember watching this develop with great interest. I love the design and am tempted to try something along these lines at some stage. Lucky Mands!

They are wonderful quilts Helen. Kind of like an old fashioned lens/shutter. Intricate piecing!

Yes, definitely let's do it again next year :)
