This is the other half of the doll quilt swap. The 'fly' quilt I made for Leah which has now landed safely at its new home so I can show you more pictures. I was so excited when I saw her colour preferences were for aqua and red and that she wanted a quilt for the wall. I LOVE aqua and red! And then after buying a few of Jodies little girls I knew just what I wanted to make.
I learnt a lot making this quilt, like you are not meant to double back when ending quilting threads, you are meant to tuck them in, and that quilting on top of appliques attached with vliesofix doesn't work that well at all. It was the first time I tried quilting in anything other than straight lines and I am rather pleased with these little swirls and clouds. Leah is a brilliant quilter so I was rather nervous sending this off, but she likes it. YAY!
I do love the finished quilt, faults and all. But as sweet as the front is, I think I love the backing and binding best of all.
