Doll Quilt from Lilly

I was lucky enough to win another doll quilt. The lovley Lilly made and sent along an extra to our wonderful organiser Helen. Our name was drawn out of the hat so my litte man sam is very spoilt and gets this wonderful piece of work. Thank you Helen for organising the swap. And to Lilly who very generously donated an extra piece, she is very clever, her hand quilting is beautiful.

Thanks Bec

Well we are finally home and back online! Well sort of Dial-up anyway and at the moment it is better than nothing at all.

Our little parcel managed to track us down in Brisbane.

Thanks Bec for the lovely little quilt for Amelia and her teddies and doll and for the soap for me!

Sorry about the poor photo - I have to get some water onto the trees so I have somewhere nice to hang them - or take my things down to a nice garden!
Thanks again Bec. And thanks for organising this Helen - it was so much fun - cant wait for our next one!

Our new dolly quilt from Ingrid




Our dolly quilt has been played with non-stop for the games of 'patting babies' (ithis is where you sit with a doll on either side of you, wrap them up and then pat them on the back - it came from day care! I happen to think that a more appropriate name is whacking babies because the 'pats' are pretty hard!)

Thank you so much Ingrid - we love it!!

The Doll quilt has arrived



Well technically I got 2, which is a little confusing and I'm not sure if she made both but they greatefully recieved. Here are the photo's. Sam loves them already as you can see, and has been rolling around and chewing on it already. So thank you DDG they will both be loved and used.

Little trucker quilt for Austy - Thanks AJ!


This was definitely worth the wait - check out those super tiny triangles! Austy's first remarks as we opened the parcel was "Fabwic sor Mummy" (seeing the pretty pink wrapping fabric) then "Woooooooow!!! Little twiangles!!" Then I told him it was his quilt for Benji Bear and he quickly swooped it up and ran to his bedroom to get BB and his buddies, as well as his own baby quilt to go outside for a teddy bears picnic. Here are a few of the photos I snapped as he played.





And of course the little nameless boy doll (my nappy tester before Austy was born, especialily when my friend told me they'd be too big for a newborn...) Just to give you an idea of size, this doll is about the size of a 5-6lb baby.

AJ - I hope you find a pic there that you like for your quilt diary! There are plenty more, but I've already overloaded the blog... woops (insert blushing smilie here)

Thanks Lily

The lovely Lily sent me this beautiful hand quilted Doll quilt... I love the floral print fabric...I have something similar in blues i think... and it goes perfectly with the beautiful plum colour that it is alternated with.

From Kylie


Kylie has gone with Cate's theme of dogs by using some puppy print feature fabric with a pale pink homespun and hand embroidered a dog motif on the front and hand quilted bones and paw prints! Her backing and binding is multicoloured paw prints and the stitching is divine. And, Kylie also made a little drawstring bag for Cate and added a Schleich pony! Thanks so much Kylie xx

Thank you so much Adds. I LOVE it! The fabrics and colours are just perfect and all the added extras make me feel like a very spoilt girl. It is dark and rainy here today so the pics aren't the best. I will try and get a better shot of the whole quilt tomorrow.

Express!

Posted off my doll quilt today...I so hope my swappee likes it! There's a parcel ticket in our mailbox today, so my husband will go and collect for me tomorrow. It's either the quilt I'm receiving or some new fabric from Equilter. Either way it's going to be a happy mail Friday!
