DQS 13

Today I am putting the finishing touches on my doll quilt swap package with the hope that I might actually be able to get it in the mail by the end of the day.


I'm always a little anxious about sending out my work to a total stranger because you never really know how it will be received by the recipient.  I'm crossing my fingers that I was able to capture all that my partner wanted in this little cutie.  I really like it, so I hope she does too.


 I decided to hand quilt again
 I really like the look of hand quilting, though it can be very time-consuming -- I'm a slow hand-quilter!  But working on these smaller scale projects let's me get some practice time in as well as letting me get my hand-stitch "fix".  Win-Win!  
Call me crazy, but I still have a desire to hand quilt an entire large quilt... Someday!


 This round I tried to be a little less boring and make a "fancy" label.  
(Names are blacked out to protect the innocent :) 
Some of the swap labels can be pretty amazing.
Mine never has been. 


So now that it's done, I'm off to wrap it up with some goodies and send it on it's way to *undisclosed location* while I'm forced to wait impatiently patiently for my mini to arrive.

Oh, the anticipation!
Emily

  2. That teal binding is worth its weight in gold. Totally makes the quilt. It would have been a shame to lose that bright quality with the wrong colour binding but you nailed it!!

  14. Anyone would be happy to receive such a pretty little quilt. The white fabric highlight all the prints and the pattern so nicely. And the hand quilting fits perfectly.
