Doll Quilt Swap Wrap Up

My swap partner Linda in Virginia has received her doll quilt, and today is the day we linkup with Lori's blog, Humble Quilts to show the finishes.  Lori has started a Facebook page for her blog swaps and I have already posted there.  This little quilt has gotten a lot of attention, which is so nice.  The pattern is called Simple Simon,from an old Quiltmaker magazine from 2006.  It is foundation (paper) pieced.

Front view.  I stitched in the ditch across the center of each block and then 1/4 inch inside the perimeter of the individual block centers, all by machine.  The motif, "Friendship Blossom", came from a Quiltmaker's quilting motif book of 500 designs.  I wasn't a perfectionist about the placement of the motif but like it anyway!

 A fun pieced back from leftovers and some gifted fabric.  I did include a label, not shown here.

Closeup of the quilting and binding.  As usual, it was great fun making this little doll quilt and I hope its owner enjoys it for many years to come.  Thank you, Lori, for another fantastic opportunity to play with reproduction fabrics and join a great group of quilters!

Very cute! Love the pattern, fabric and especially the Friendship Blossom quilt design...adds the prefect touch. Lucky Linda. All of the doll quilts I've seen have been wonderful. I may have to get brave enough to participate next time.

Just lovely Annie. The colours are beautiful.

How is the new job going?

Gorgeous colours. I love the simplicity of the blick but it looks striking with the value changes. Very pretty.

This is such a great quilt! You made your blog post, but didn't link up. Hope you don't mind I did it:)
