Doll Quilt Swap

On Flickr there are tons of swaps that happen each and every month ... crafty swaps, fabric swaps, quilting swaps .... I've been watching the Doll Quilt Swap off and on for a few months now and finally decided to join in this round (Round 6!).

Basically you sign up and are assigned a random partner. The best part is that you keep your partner secret so no one knows who is making a quilt for them! You are able to specify a few of your quilting likes & dislikes so your partner has something to go on. It's so fun to watch the group pool once the pictures start rolling in to try to guess which quilt is being made for you!

I was really lucky for my first time participating in that I received an AWESOME quilt from Kerri at MayaEliseBoutique. She did an AMAZING job putting it together and ended up making something that I just love. I actually had seen it in the group pool and even commented on it how much I loved it. Little did I know that it was going to be coming home to me. I literally squealed when I opened up the mail a few weeks ago to find it in an envelope with a return address I didn't recognize!

Isn't it so pretty? It's now hanging up in my sewing room so I can look at it and enjoy it every day.

to me from Kerri!

She made the cutest label for it ... she printed on material through her home printer a little label she had made in Photoshop! It's so cute!

This is the quilt that I made for my partner. They have yet to receive it in the mail so I can't spoil who it is yet! I had been seeing and loving those darling fabric buntings everywhere so that's what I was inspired by. I really like the way it turned out and I hope she does too.

I used cute cute fabric from the line Bubblegum Basics. It's very bright and springy - I think! Here is what the back looked like:
