Doll Quilt Swap

I got my doll quilt completed and mailed and received mine in return already!
I posted pictures of the quilt back and front already but here they are again, all quilted and binding done. Yes I managed to bind a quilt without my mom to help me! I changed the stitch I was doing, used a very very thin and short needle and my hand stitching went much, MUCH quicker. Maybe someday I'll even grow to enjoy it!

And here is the GORGEOUS quilt I received in the swap! I love it and I think it will get hung in our bedroom. Ben likes it too as you can see. :)

Speaking of my mom helping me with my quilts, I need to get going on my next quilt before she arrives for her next visit. I've pieced 28 out of 40 squares for the top. Plus I plan to make the back pieced so a bit of work there too. I'm using a layer cake of Moda Soiree plus some extra fabric. Hope it works out well!
Here is a peak of what I've got so far:


  1. Love the swap idea, but could hardly look at the quilts for the Cute Baby Overload! Aarrrrr, a Pirate Baby! Too adorable.

  2. Thanks! He's a total ham for the camera and doesn't get why I'm NOT taking pictures of him sometimes. So he crawls all over my projects :)

  3. Oh, that Soiree layer cake quilt looks like it's going to be totally yummy! I posted some pictures of some stuff I made with honey bun strips on my blog today. I can't wait to see what your quilt looks like!
