Essential Quilters Doll Quilt Swap #6
Last year Nic sent me this little piece of cuteness and this year it was my turn to send her something!
I went with a paper pieced centre, some wonky 'piano keys' around the edges and some plain cornerstones. I quilting by machine around the centre star and then added some echo stitching as well. I then also tried my hand at some 'hand quiltling' What I did was probably more embroidery but I like it all the same.
I hope her small daughter enjoys tucking in her dolls under this one!
In return I got another stunning quilt this year!
The talented Anna made these wonky houses to hang on my wall.
A row of little scrappy houses sit on a curvy hill.
There are little flowers and chimney smoke quilted in and little birds singing in trees.
There is also some lovely silver thread quilted in the sky area...so sparkly!
Thanks Anna! It looks right at home among my other quilts on the wall and as soon as I find my bag of hooks it will be joining them permanently!
PS This is my 900th post!!
