Doll Quilt Received!


Posted on September 17th, by Amy in Doll Quilt Swap. 24 comments

I’ve had the best round with Doll Quilt Swap! I love making little quilts for people and of course the payoff is a new quilt for me. For those that don’t know, DQS is a secret swap, you never know who is sending a quilt your way! The fun is watching all the beautiful quilts added to the pool over the course of the 2 months. Some finish fast and others are still sewing at the deadline, so there is always something new to see! I love to leave comments as adorable quilts are posted, but rarely allow myself to believe that it could be for me.

Imagine my surprise yesterday when I opened the mailbox and found a package from Australia, containing this gem

Doll Quilt Swap Received!!

Nicole of Craftapalooza, has been stalking around here getting to know me, and made this just for me! Each petal of the flower is about 3/4″ across, and the flowers are not quite 2 1/2″ total. Adorable, little details in each flower too! And this is something that I have yet to even try for myself. Joe thinks I’m a little strange carrying it around and running my hand over the flowers – they are just too beautiful!

+ a few extras :)

She included some great little extras too! Thanks again Nicole – I love it :) Just what I needed yesterday too – I was going on little sleep and feeling a bit down after spending the afternoon cleaning. Thankfully Emmalie has been 24+ hours without incident and at kindergarten this morning!!

Blessings -
Amy

    So cute! I love the progression of colors. I had no idea they were so tiny! That pattern is one of my "mindless watching tv" patterns. So cool coming from so far away too. Glad little Miss Emmalie is feeling better. Take care! Jenn

    hey Amy! Sweet post. I had a blast lurking. So glad you like it, it's not perfect :) but it was a blast to make and fussy cut some of the patterns. There's a mix of vintage, new, liberty tana lawn and oop prints. Glad it lifted you!! Hope your little one stays well. x
