I was so excited about this swap. I'm not a dolls type of girl, even as a child I would rather have been outside climbing trees with the boys, than playing with dolls, but the idea of a teeny tiny miniture bed quilt got me so excited I signed up right away and was lucky enough to be accepted.
I had so much fun making an inspiration mosaic for my partner, and made it no secret that I had developed an obsession with 1930s prints and traditional quilt blocks.
When I saw a photo of this beautiful quilt in the group it brought a big smile to my face, and when my postie delivered it to me I was actually dancing and skipping around like a crazy lady! My partner Sonia got it so perfectly right for me! I love everything about this little beauty! Just look at those cheery prints and colours, and her beautiful hand quilting!
Thankyou so much Sonia I absolutley LOVE it :) and the extras you sent me were perfect too, the charm pack has already been opened and is being transformed into hexagons for my hexagon quilt :)
Here is the quilt I made for my partner, and it has arrived safe and sound in it's new home :)
In other news, I've managed to make some progress in my Across the Sea QAL! All 20 of my blocks are now pieced, I just need to trim them and play about with the layout. I'm still a bit behind, but I'm hoping to be caught up soon :)
Also for those who have been wondering, the blocks I posted about for the top secret Project 51, they have been transformed into a fabulous quilt for a surprise gift for a very brave lady. The lovely Judith at Rags to Bags wrote a beautiful post about the quilt on her blog. You should have a wee look if you haven't already :)
