Flick Doll Quilt Swap #9 Finished!

I have finished the binding on the second version of my dolls quilt for the Flickr DQS# 9. I'm really happy with how it has turned out. My partner has been a bit on the quiet side so I hope she is happy too.

I love the back! For the first version I did white thread on the back, but for this one I matched the bobbin thread with the top thread. i think the back looks as good as the front!

So which one shall I send? I have had them both hanging up in the dining room and been running a poll. Grace and Daz like the red and blue one, Milly and I like the pink one. Friends over last night voted 2 for the red and blue, two for the pink! So it is tied. Which one would YOU like?

They are both gorgeous. I would be very happy with either but as a blue girl I have to vote for the blue. Do you know your partners favourite colour?

Rose said...

The pink one is my fave...

Both of them are truly works of art. When I see the pink one by itself, that is the one I would want. When I see them together, either would be terrific hanging on the wall! Whomever is the recipient will be really lucky. It looks that you have put a tremendous amount of effort into creating both of them. Bravo on a job well done!

They both turned out so gorgeous! I keep going back and forth on which one I like better. I think it may be the pink one. Your partner is so lucky!

They are both lovely but I'm prefer pink so the pink one!

While I generally love blue, in this case I like the pink better. I think the rounded petals suit me better.

Blue!

OMG I love them both but I think the blue one might just scrap through for me

I love that shot from the back, and the way your quilting makes the applique really POP! I love the pointy leaves in the blue one, but somehow the colours in the pink one get me, and that would be my choice. Fantastic work!

I would choose the pink one with the purple binding ... MY COLORS!

They are both absolute wonderful - your partner is very, VERY lucky!

You do amazing work! You are asking everyone to pick between two perfect pieces! They are both wonderful. I love the blue one...but that doesn't mean I don't love the pink one too! You have one lucky partner! Your quilts are pieces of art!

Blue! I love the way the petals are like feathers. If I were your partner I would want it and if I were you, I would have to keep it!

They are both great, but I think I like the red & blue only a tad more!

They are both lovely, as I hope you know, but I just love that spiky red and blue one!

Love the pink one and happy for you to send it to me anytime ;) LOL.

I love that quilting effect - very effective!

Vicky F said...

Both are nice, but I favor the red/blue one. Very perky and fun!

Oh My......choice is so difficult, but I, too, like the pink......especially the backing.

carol said...

I like the one with the rounded flower petals. Don't ask me why, I have no idea! :)

Samantha Marshall said...

Rebecca Jane said...

Oh my goodness - they are both fantastic! I would be delighted if either arrived in my mail box, but if I have to choose - pink it is.
Congratulations on your lovely quilts.

The blue is my fave
