Doll Quilt Exchange

I received my doll quilt from Lisa of Stray Threads yesterday.
I simply adore it!
She even took the time to hand quilt it.
I don't have a doll bed, so the only doll I have from my childhood (she is a Hawaiian doll given to me by my grandmother--her grass skirt has disintegrated over the years) proudly took possession of the quilt.  Since she is lacking in apparel, the quilt will keep her warm and I will be shopping for a doll bed for the two of them while antique shopping this summer.
Thank you, thank you Lisa for this lovely doll quilt and thank you again to Christine for organizing the exchange.
This is a lopsided picture of the quilt I sent Lisa.
It was my attempt to reproduce a doll quilt in the Mary Ghormley collection from a picture I had seen.

Now back to the sewing machine.  It is National Quilters Day and I am 2 blocks behind in my Barbara Brackman Civil War BOTW.

    Yours is lovely Cheryl, your colours are warm and welcoming and your borders are strong but not dominating.
