Doll Quilt Swap #13 Finish

I have been beavering away on my entry for the Doll Quilt Swap #13.

After doing as much stalking swap-partner watching as possible, I decided to give this paper pieced pattern a go.  It is a really lovely design and since rainbow colours seemed to fit the bill...

DQS#13 All Finished

The middle square looked a little empty, so I couldn't resist using one of my special Japanese charm squares to make a sewing machine/notions hexagon applique.  I have hand quilted around that with a lovely red Pearle cotton thread.


Here is the label on the back.  I went for an English Paper Pieced block.

My swap-partner's name has been blurred as it's a surprise swap.

I am so happy with how it turned out.

I love the little pop of colour that the flange adds to the border/binding.

What have you been up to?

Cheerio for now


  1. it's so lovely!!! (and you said "flange" - hehehehehehe!)

  2. That is a gorgeous mini - lucky partner. Love your colour choices.

  3. Lucky partner...I am looking at feathers now thanks to you :) I have been wanting to try AMH's pattern...

  4. It is a beautiful mini and the flange works well. Di x

  5. Gorgeous quilt - I love the pink and red dots especially! Flange is very cool too, I might have to give that a go as it finishes it off so nicely! I have been unpicking quilting - urgh! Very boring, I'm afraid. XXXX

  6. I love it, and that little sewing machine in the middle is just perfect? What fabric line is that? Glad to see you are doing some hand quilting too - it looks lovely. What a lot of techniques in one mini quilt :-)

  7. Love that cute wee hexie in the middle!

  8. Happy belated Birthday, Liz! I hope you spent a happy time with friends and family!

  9. Love it, flange and all ;-)

  10. Love your artsy back and the addition of your sewing hexagon on the front. Lucky doll swap partner! Thanks for stopping by for the Lovely Finishes project.

  11. Gorgeous!!! I love your addition to the center of these bright blocks!

  12. This is terrific! Your partner is very lucky :)


I can't tell you how much I love a comment. It makes me smile one huge great big smile.
