EB Doll Quilt Swap – What I sent

Now that my swapee and received there quilt I can show some pictures I what I sent.

I had this quilt in mind for a while now but had not had the chance to make it, so when my swapee asked for something pink and girly I to0k the chance to make this design.

One of the reasons I liked this design is the piecing is the main attraction and the quilting is quite plain (easy) I know I really must improve my quilting skills and stretch myself, next time I promise

I have been eyeing off this range every since a sneak peek of it was shown on Rosalie blog so when I saw that the lovely Corrie at Retro Mummy was having a giveaway I just had to sign up.

There have been so many lovely quilts designed in this range already the hardest part if I won would be deciding what to do with it

EB Doll Quilt Swap Opening Day - What I received

Today was the day I had been looking forward to all week, I have had a parcel sitting next to me on the computer desk all week, taunting me saying, Open me, Open me and today I was finally able to open it. It was from the lovely Nic and it contained this wonderful wall hanging

EB 2010 Doll Qult that I received

Nic truly spoilt me and the boys, as not only did it contain the wall hanging, which will look amazing hanging up next to the one I received last year from Car, but she also sent me a book for Bastian, some socks for Lachie (that matched his outfit he had on today so went straight onto his feet) and some goats milk soap and some pretty heart topped pins

as well as all of that the wall hanging was rapt in this frog material that is just to cute
