A quilt from Kriszta.

Woweeee! My dolls quilt from Kriszta for our KQI Swap arrived today all the way from Budapest! It is absolutely stunning, I was speechless when opening the package except for the oh oh oh ohhhhhh's! The "rules" were roughly one house or log cabin block, one star block, colour of recipients choice and something 3D. See that little cute car above? Its a button, thats the 3D element! The photo's don't do this little quilt justice, the colours in real life are so soft. It is more a work of art than a dolls quilt.

Her detail is amazing. The swing on the tree, the verigated thread star.

The cobblestone quilting......

Here is the back. I took this one without the flash so the quilting could be easily seen.

And these sweet little wonky houses with their TV antenna's basking in the moonlight! I want to live in the pink house, imagine the view!

Thank you so much Kriszta, it is truelly beautiful. I love it! A great swap. Are we ready for the next round?

You know, before I even started reading, I looked at the first picture and said. "Oh! Oh! Oh. Oh."

I think that's about all I can say. What an amazing work of art.
