Swaps Received!!

I've had a couple of good days of mail! Friday my Doll Quilt arrived, and Saturday my STUD mini arrived :) Time for some pictures --

Doll Quilt from Maggistitches -
Doll Quilt Swap 6 from Maggistitches!

Over in the discussion thread for DQS we agreed to post a pic of us with the quilt we receive, make it a little more personal. Fun idea - here's me :)

Doll Quilt Swap 6 - and me!

Here's the back of the quilt - notice the addition of the front fabrics in the back! So cute.

Thank you Maggi!

Swap Til You Drop - Spring Flowers mini from Tracy!

And extras :)
Spring Flowers - bonus
I love the concentric square quilting on this one too!
This is why I have loved getting into swaps - the quilty goodness that comes back to me :) There's a link in my previous post for a swap that closes tomorrow, if you are interested in getting involved.

I'm off to get my binding stitched down --

Wow! They're both gorgeous! And extra fabrics, too?...SCORE! LOL

That's it, I have got to learn how to quilt.

Enjoy your new goodies.

Looks like a couple of fun quilts! Man I love fabric, pattern, color - wish I had the talent/time/skill for quilting. Glad I can enjoy them through your blog. :) You are looking super great by the way - it's only been what, 8 years since I've seen you? :)

I love the quilts! I'm glad you included a picture of yourself, it really personalizes it!

Stephanie said...

Judging from your wall color your swap partner chose a great palette for you. I love the simplicity of the design.

Jean said...

Beautiful quilts and the extra bonus of fabrics is them, but especially the orange! It is always fun to get something in the mail.

Jackie said...

Wow, 2 wonderful little quilts!! You are one lucky girl. They are really terrific.

So cute! I never thought of doing doll quilts. That doesn't feel so overwhelming :) It's the "quilting" part that intimidates me :) Maybe I'll join a swap after we move.... You're inspiring :D

Maggi said...

I'm so glad you like it, Amy!

both quilts are just as cute as their new owner :-)

Cassie said...

Oh, my. That is some quilty goodness. Enjoy sewing that binding on. I like to bind things. It's kind of like a little frame for something lovely.

Take care,

Lovely quilt project. Oh, la-la! Lots of other yummy projects and fabrics too.

Fabric (and patterned paper)=my weaknesses-lol.
