DQS10 Finished!!

I mailed my Doll Quilt Swap 10 out today. I am really pleased with how it turned out, and hope that my partner will be too.

DQS10 - All Finished

The dress is my embroidery version of Fig Tree & Co.'s Madeline pattern. I traced the outline and then filled it in with patterns from the Sandi Henderson fabrics I used for the half-square-triangles.

DQS10 - Label

I have to admit, it was a little bit difficult to mail it off today, especially because it is heading overseas, and I had a swap package get lost before. I will cry if it doesn't make it!

DQS10 - Received {front}

I also received my DQS10 quilt yesterday from Lael in Alabama. I just love the color scheme she used. It's so fresh and cheery, I cannot wait to hang it on my wall.

DQS10 - Received {back}

The back is also super cute, especially the snail! I'm so glad to have gotten the chance to participate. And this completes my swapping for a little while. I'm glad to have a break, but I'll miss looking forward to quilty mail!
