I once again participated in a Dolls Quilt Swap (DQS) with some quilting friends this year. My fourth year I think now, and I love the challenge of coming up with something interesting, colourful, to the taste and requests of the recipient.
This year I was making for AJ, who requested a wall hanging. So my mind wandered through AJ's blog, checked out what she had received in past years and also spent quite a bit of time on pinterest for some inspiration!
I made AJ a small rectangle size dolls quilt with scrappy houses, a rolling hill, dark skies with the sun poking through and some pretty rain drop quilting with a combination of variegated and metallic threads which sparkle in the light.
I received this year from Rachel, who made a little dolls quilt for Miss 4 - which quickly found a new home on her bed keeping a selection of her dolls all snuggled up for bedtime.
