Doll Quilt Swap

Just this afternoon, I received my doll quilt from the swap Lori (Humble Quilts) hosted.  The little quilt was made by another Karen and she lives in Connecticut.  Rows of Flying Geese separated by a band of pink and a band of gold.  She chose a color combo that I like very much.  The quilt is Big Stitched with black thread.  I like the way the binding is done on the backside.  I have never done one that way and find it intriguing.



Also included was some little knit rugs and a chocolate bar which is liquid chocolate right now as it is in the mid 90's here today.  But it is quickly firming up.


Thank you, Karen from Connecticut.  You did very good!  And thank you, Lori, for hosting the swap.

I previously shared a photo of the log cabin doll quilt I made for the swap but want to share it here again so I will have a record all in one spot.  I had Judy C.'s name and she lives in Nebraska.


Here is a link to Lori's blog for the Linky Party.
