DQS#9 Version 1 - Finished!

Well I finished my dolls quilt for Flickr DQS#9. Here is Version 1! Version 2 is still being quilted. One for me, one for you dear silent partner! This is just one block from Aunt Millie's Garden, imagine how stunning the whole quilt would look?

Some swirly quilting.

And some more swirly quilting. I love how the needle has popped a hole in the fabric slightly, kinda adds texture. Not too sure why that has happened though, it is the right sized needle and a new needle. When I give it a squirt with the water and rub it though, it disappears.

This is just beautiful! I envy your fantastic quilting, something I am just beginning to learn. The whole quilt would be stunning. I hope you get a return quilt of similar brilliance. I have just been an observer of DSQ9 this round and hope to play along next time.

They're both so lovely but this one, with the pointy petals, is my fave. Stunning work!
