I have finally finished and posted off my first doll quilt made for a swap. Not my first quilt, mind you, as I've tackled much larger things in the past and have a couple underway as we speak (does that term apply when you are blogging?).
Here..... (**insert fanfare of medieval trumpets**) is the quilt destined for my swap recipient in Canberra. That's all I can say until the recipient receives her parcel and falls over in hysterics at my wonky quilting!!
I had a great time making this. Researching the pattern, being persuaded (thanks Robyn!) that I didn't have to make the most complicated quilt in the universe nor had the time to do one, selecting fabrics from my overflowing fabric stash. Hand sewing binding on a quilt for the first time. Using my walking foot on my sewing machine for the first time. Using fleece fabric instead of 'proper' quilt batting - waste not, want not. I truly enjoyed being thrifty whilst making this quilt and can proudly say I did not purchase anything for it, just used what I had.
So here's where I hold my breath and wait. Hopefully she'll like it.
