Doll Quilt Swap 2 - I'm DONE! (well, almost)


Ok, ok, so I still need to make a label for this doll quilt swap quilt, but here it is in it's more or less final form.

I put a binding on it that is black, so I'll have to get some pix of it up on my wall or something before I send it on it's merry way.

I had never tried using this clam shell quilting pattern before, but I think it filled the white space nicely.

Hopefully my partner will like it, she said she's into retro 1930's looking fabrics, so I really tried not to stray to far from her personal request (even though the pattern itself is Japanese, so I'm a bit guilty of following her taste perhaps there).


The quilt that I mailed off for the Doll Quilt Swap #1 was well-loved by Maggi, so hope that this one is off to a similar good home.

Ooo! Ooo! I said I liked repros! It's beautiful. I love the applique, too. Anyone would be lucky to get one of your hand quilted creations.

What a great pattern you have used.A special distinction between one-colored and the lovely reproprints and so on.

Well done Marisa - I love the cherries too and I have a soft spot for the clam shell quilting pattern as well - your swap person will adore it I'm sure!
