DOLL QUILT SENT FOR EXCHANGE

This is the doll quilt that I made for the Doll Quilt Exchange that Lori of Humble Quilts organized.  I already had made the 9-patches out of fabric from my basket quilt and picked out a really cute red and white shirting for the alternating blocks.  I mailed it to Debra and today I received a very sweet thank you note from her that she had received it.



When I was trying to decide what to put on the back, I happened to see this FQ of toile fabric and luckily it fit!  It was the perfect fabric for the backing!  I hope I'm not the only one who machine quilted their quilt.  I've kind of given up on hand quilting lately - bad me.  I've done my share of it, but don't really enjoy it very much.


Again, here is a picture of the wonderful quilt I received from Laurie:


You can read more about it in this blog post.  Thanks, Lori for organizing this exchange!  This is the first exchange I have participated in for something that it a finished item!  It was fun and easy!

Your little quilt is adorable and as always, I love your fabric choices! I don't think it matters if the quilts are hand or machine quilted. The quilt I received was a little of both. This was a fun swap!

Both quilts are really lovely!

I love your little doll quilt! Great color choices. I really like the one you received too. I have been seeing other quilts from this exchange on some blogs,I think everyone did a great job.

Your little quilt is very sweet, and I don't think it matters whether it was machine or hand quilted. If you don't enjoy the hand quilting, then what is the point? Your hobby shouldn't become a chore!

Your little quilt is adorable and I love the toile!!
And I've seen lots of machine quilting- no problem.

Love the quilt you sent! the little red shirting is so cute and looks so great with the blues. The back...love it.
Of course the quilt you recieved is a beauty.
I don't think machine quilting is a negative, it looks great. Everyone isn't able to quilt by hand and that is ok. :)
