Doll Quilt Swap 4

I think I mentioned briefly last week that I had signed up for the Doll Quilt Swap. This is the first swap of any kind I have done, and I must admit to being a little nervous. I checked out the blog of my swap recipient and she is quite a talented quilter. It is a little intimidating, but I will do the best I can! I have an idea in mind and have pulled some fabrics from my stash. I hope to make some progress over the 4th of July weekend. It is too hot in Arizona to do a lot of outdoor activities. It is too hot for me even for fireworks, even though there are thousands that wait out in the heat every year. I take the easy way out and watch on tv.


This is one of the quilts that needed only binding to be completed. I finished this last week. I am happy with the results. The fabric was from a few years ago. It was called Willa. This is another pattern from the Evelyn Sloppy book mentioned in my last post.

Here are a couple of close ups of some of the quilting.




Talk to you soon,

Donna

I'm stopping by to visit your blog and have enjoyed it. I don't know anything about a doll quilt swap. It will be interesting to see what you make.
