Doll Quilt Swap 9

Posted on August 25th, by Amy in Doll Quilt Swap, finished quilt. 28 comments

Hi there!  I’ve been working behind the scenes here on my challenge for the week – I hope you have gotten started on your challenge too!  Today I am enjoying the last day with my girls, before 1st and 5th grade begins.  How is the summer gone already!?

Over the weekend I received my Doll Quilt from Marilyn, aka Spiced Coffee on Flickr!

Look at this beauty–

I even hung it on the wall in our living room – the colors are a perfect compliment.   Oh, and look at her beautiful hand quilting, and appliqué —

Marilyn also sent stickers for my kids, this fun book and adorable pot holders —

One of the potholders says, “When I learned to sew, I forgot how to cook!”  and the other, “A clean house is the sign of a broken sewing machine.”  Spot on for me!!  There’s also a teeny pair of snips there, with a cover the shape of a puppy.  Wouldn’t you know that’s what my girls really wanted, but who knows what they would be cutting….they are safe with me!  Thanks again Marilyn – I love it all!


On the other side of the coin, my DQS quilt is done and ready to be shipped off!  I had to get a label on it, and had put it off long enough.

Here’s the back side, including the label —

I just covered the name so I don’t spoil the surprise!

One last glamor shot —

I did a double layer of batting under the Dresden  plates, faux trapunto, I hope my partner washes it, but wanted to let them decide.

Are you wanting to make Dresden plates yet?

Hope you are having a great day.  Blessings~

    Everything is great. Those potholders are too funny. And your dresden plate is fabulous. If anything would make me want to do a dresden plate, your quilt would be it!

    Thank you so much for posting my quilt to your blog! It really is fun seeing it there! So glad you like everything. The little Puppy Snips actually come from the knitting world, but are perfect for carrying around with little quilting projects too.

    Your dresden plate mini is gorgeous! Marilyn
