They come and they go!

Well, it seems like I am quickly becoming obsessed with doll quilts. I received a beautiful green, burgundy and beige one patch quilt from Ann-Margaret in Montreal for the Miniature Booty Swap. The colors are beautiful and match my family room and I love it! It will look great on the little quilt wall that I am starting in that room.

I made a broken dishes quilt for my partner - at last check it hadn't arrived yet but I'll post a picture of the front. I had never made this pattern before and really enjoyed it. I used the Easy Angle ruler and boy was that a great tool! I'll be using it quite a bit in the future! I also convinced myself that the little quilt should be hand quilted. My first hand quilted piece - not that spectacular looking, but I must admit I enjoyed doing it and can see that practice will definitely help. I hope my swap partner doesn't mind my practicing on her quilt!

Oh yay... it arrived safely! :D I'm so glad you like it and the colours worked out well. The one you made is really pretty! That's a pattern I haven't tried yet -- it's simple but striking and I like the blues you used. :)

These little quilts ARE so much fun . . . and addictive.

I really like the pink & green one! No surprise though. You should see the fabrics we have for Sarah's quilt. We love Heather Bailey!
