DQS8 - Mission Accomplished!

I received my quilt today. It is a wonderful little quilt made by Brenis, aka Hey Diddle Diddle Woolies on Flickr.

See! Isn't it just perfect?? I love polka dots and the bird in the middle and the circles and the quilting and...well, you get the idea.

I enjoyed this round of the Doll Quilt Swap very much. I am already looking forward to the next round!

And since I've been a very lazy blogger, here is the quilt I made to send to my partner:

It has a lot of black, which is a bit different for me. But really, this quilt just sort of made itself. I started with the little baskets in shades of aqua and green with the white and black spotted background. From there, it just sort of came together on it's own. The only fabric I purchased to make this quilt was the border fabric. Again, kind of bold for me, but it seemed to suit the quilt. Hopefully my partner will like it. I don't think it has arrived yet; it had quite a long journey and I've got my fingers crossed it gets there safely.

Can't wait to see what is next in DQS9!!
