It's that time of the year again, Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival! The quilt I am submitting is on the other side of the world now. This is my favorite close up of it.
Those of you that read my blog already know I have been a swap mama for a few rounds of the flickr Doll Quilt Swap. It's always a fantastic swap. There is a lot of chat behind the scenes amongst the mama's. One fellow mama is an amazing lady called Lynne. We got to emailing each other chatting back and forth and agreed to have a little private quilt swap of our own.
We gave each other an open brief as we both thought each others work was fantastic. I knew I wanted to do some wonky houses for her. And then I added a tree.
Looked good but still needed another house. Getting there....
Enter the rocket house!
Okay, the top is now finished! Let the quilting begin!
I pebble quilted the sky in a variegated blue cotton.
Echo stitched around the windows and if you look very closely pebble quilted the house in white as well.
And framed it in some Kaffe. Lynne loved it. You can see in this blog post of her's where she hung it. And I in return received this quilt from her.
Check out everyone's quilts here in the festival! Great work as always Amy.
