Doll Quilt Swap 10, again

Ok, my second run at the doll quilt swap- which might still not be the one that I mail.  Who knows...


My partner really likes the colors blue and orange together.  (just like me!)  So as luck would have it, I have some Blue and Orange fabric.  The quilt is backed in -old- orange Heather Ross fabric.


The applique shapes are all stitched down by machine, but NOT raw-edge appliqued.  Every edge is folded under and stitched using a unique "facing" technique.  The machine stitching through each shape is ALSO the quilting lines of the project.  {{two birds, one stone, you know.}}

I added in "ghost" shapes using grey embroidery floss.  The floss is quilted through the three layers, too.

I really like this one.  I might have to keep it.
*Fabric used in this project are designed by Jen Eskridge and are for sale over on Spoonflower.com and SOON will be available on the ReannaLily Designs website.

I see that you're doing a tile quilt. I just got the Reinventing Tile Quilts book and I'm working on a small block. I love the effect on your quilt and my block.

Oh, and I love blue and orange together too...

Very cute!
