4 Seasons Monochromatic Challenge Dolls Quilt Finished!!

I have finished my dolls quilt for the 4 Seasons Monochromatic Challenge Dolls Quilt Swap. Finally sewn the label on......

I called it Summer Poppies. Hope my partner likes it, she is rather a traditional kinda quilter. I quilted swirls to represent flames at the bottom which you can see more on the backing.

My favourite bit is the quilting in the white around the flowers. I like that! This swap was a challenge, I found it harder to work with one colour than what I thought it would be..... Thats the aim of a challenge I suppose!

Onto the next dolls quilt swap now!

Nice work Helen. The variegated thread on the white is fab and really sets off the rest. It's hard making one for a 'trad' quilter, non?
