Doll Quilt Swap 2017

Lori of Humble Quilts has held a doll quilt swap for several years and I have luckily been participating yearly.  My swap partner, Karen, received her quilt and as she does not have a blog, Lori asked me to make a post of the quilt I made for her to include in the Swap Linky Party.   

Here is the finished top.  I machine stitched in the ditch along the vertical rows and then made the crosshatch in the side borders, almost by accident!  The above picture was taken before I started hand quilting in the triangles very close to the outside edges.

I planned the label as a part of the construction and was glad it actually worked out with the quilting not disrupting it too much.  My swap partner, Karen, was on a trip when I mailed the quilt to her and kindly posted on Facebook when she opened the package on her return, and liked it!

Go HERE to see all the doll quilts that were swapped this year, they are truly wonderful.

A really sweet and unique quilt. I like that you combined machine and hand quilting. That is something I have found fun to do.
