Doll Quilt Swap 7 - Received AND Sent

For me, one of the best mail days is when a Doll Quilt Swap package shows up in the mailbox...like today!

It's ADORABLE! And it's from Natalie...and did I say it's adorable?


Taking note of my fancy for Japanese prints, she made a coin pattern quilt with some of the cutest prints I've seen!


I think the brown solid fabric really shows off the prints, and I love the decorative stitch she used for the quilting.


The back is every bit as wonderful!


Along with the doll quilt, Natalie sent some gorgeous fabric (the pink & orange dot is one of my favorite color combos and the other, a Valori Wells design, is another favorite)...


and a fabulous embellished Moleskine sketch book:)


How lucky am I?! Thank you so much, Natalie!!

I also sent my Doll Quilt Swap package today. What do you think about that coincidental timing!

I can't say where it's headed just yet...


but I can show you the matching drawstring bag I made


to hold a graph paper booklet, cute tissue, chocolate and any other necessities he/she may want to add:)



Have a great holiday weekend!

How fun for that all to happen on the same day! What a lovely quilt you made, with matching bag...how wonderful! And the little quilt you received is so fun! Sounds like it was a great round for you!

You quilters sure have fun with your swaps. Every time I see one of your little quilts, I think "I should try that"- and then I remember that I have trouble cutting fabric straight.

Looking forward to seeing you on Tues!

Oh how cute! I love both of these quilts. Such pretty colors and designs. And the drawstring bag is really pretty. Any chance you've ever done a tutorial for a little bag like that? If so would you send me the link please? I'd love to make a couple of those for my granddaughter and niece.
