DQS7

Although things have been a little crazy in my neck of the woods recently, I managed to get my Doll Quilt Swap quilt all done by the deadline. I'm stamping a few cards to include with it tonight and I'll send to my unsuspecting partner tomorrow and I hope that he/she likes it!

I'm in love with the Neptune fabric I used and I'm already plotting a little mini quilt for myself using the other charm pack I bought. I hope my partner doesn't think it's too busy. I was going to use a solid background but then I laid out these strips and fell in love.

I stippled for the first time and I think it went pretty well. My partner will be able to see that it's not close to perfect and I had some tension issues in a couple spots, but overall I'm quite pleased with it. I didn't quilt over the bubbles and I love the way they pop off the quilt.

I even made my labels bubbles on the back. I hand sewed all the bubbles using Cheryl at Naptime Quilter's great tutorial. It measures about 12" x 24"

Update: It arrived safely and my partner, Norma (aka Petit Debutant) loves it! She even had it beautifully displayed on her dining room table. Check it out!
