Doll Quilt Swap: Quilt Received

Hi Everyone,

Goodness, I'm a day late and a dollar short posting this!  Spring is upon us and I've been doing lots of gardening, yardwork, and babysitting recently and that is keeping me from stitching as much as I like!  Oh well, soon the heat will keep me inside in my sewing room.

The last post I shared detailed the quilt I made for the Reproduction Doll Quilt Swap hosted by Lori at Humble Quilts.  Making and sending a quilt off is lots of fun, and next was the true excitement when the mail came each day to see if my quilt was there.  Finally, one day, my husband brought in the mail and there was a package for me!  I confess, I was so eager to open it and see what it was that I didn't even hear him telling me about his day.  I think he was a bit miffed at me about that, but frankly, non-quilters just don't get it...

Anyway, what came out of the package was simply stunning!


This totally gorgeous quilt, plus some fabric, a pattern, and some awesome RWB measuring tape ribbon bundling it all together.

The quilt is so fun.  I'd never seen any pattern like it before--it reminds me of houses.  Just a few days later, though, I was looking on Amazon and they had "recommended books" for me to look at.  One was this:



It's the pattern, or at least the inspiration, for my quilt!  It was like recognizing an old friend.

Meanwhile, lets take another look at mine.


I made the photo as large as possible so you could see the gorgeous backing fabric.  I love the label as well.

I've shared the quilt, but I've not told about the very talented creator.  My swap partner was Patricia Riley, owner of Prairie Hill Retreat in Janesville, Wisconsin.  She included a brochure for her retreat center and it looks like a wonderful place to go with friends to quilt.  If you are interested, it is on Facebook.

I wanted to write this post yesterday when Lori put up the linky party, but I had plans to be down in Indianapolis to garden with my daughter.  We had a lovely day and the weather was perfect, so it was more yardwork last night when I got home.  My husband and I are in the process of building a raised-bed 4 feet wide by 20 feet long so I have lots more room for dahlias this year.

Have a wonderful day!
JoAnne

  8. Adorable quilt - I've always thought it looked like houses too - glad your partner turned the blocks to be upright instead of sideways like the book has it. Lucky you!
