I received my lovely doll quilt from the wonderful Brittney!

DQS10 Received! From Inaudiblefall

She did a wonderful job making this Roald Dahl inspired little red riding hood. The illustration from his book "Gruesome Rhymes" shows little red holding up a gun, this was causing a bit of a stir in the Doll Quilt Swap group. So Brittney decided to give her a rotary cutter instead, making little red just about as bad ass as I am ;-)
My partner received her quilt as well so that wraps up this swap for me...sad face. It was lots of fun and I can not wait to do the Doll Quilt Swap again!

Yesterday I got an email from the lovely Elaine showing off her version of my circle quilt tutorial. Isn't this beautiful?! I love it.

Did you see the hearts she added instead of some of the circles? Sweet! This turned out such a warm and cozy quilt it makes me want to snuggle up on the couch under this and eat lots of chocolate and watch crappy telly. When you click on the picture it will take you to Elaine's blog where you can read all about this quilt and her other fun sewing projects.

Thank you Brittney and Elaine!!

  3. I love the doll quilt. Lucky you! The rotary cutter is genius! And I love that someone made your quilt and shared it with you. That's very cool. Congrats.

    Elaine's quilt is beautiful. It's such a great pattern. I've got a charm pack and layer cake in my cupboard that I bought after seeing your quilt,about a year ago!! one day...
