Finished my doll quilt!

I finished sewing down the binding and now my doll quilt for Doll Quilt Swap 4 is ready to be sent! I'm so excited, and very nervous! I really hope my swap-partner likes it!

I used an Amy Butler print as backing, I think it matches the top very well! It will go out on monday....

EDIT: I forgot! I went on my second run today....Can't wait until it starts getting easier. LOL!

Of course she will love it - how can she not? I really like those freestyle stars, I must try them sometime
Keep up with the running - you are amazing! A student, a mum, a quilter and now a runner too - I feel exhausted just thinking about it LOL

I love the quilt and the backing you used. I think it goes great with it.
Stick with the running-you'll be glad you did!

That doll quilt is SSSOOOO pretty! I love the crazy stars, too.

Running doesn't get easy until about the 9th run, but then...it becomes fun and relaxing!

Your wonky stars are growing on me. They look good! And I love the backing; it's so very perfect. Your swap partner is sure to love it, too. Congrats on the running; you are allowed to stop and walk when you get tired, you know. ;>}

You really get things done when you put your mind to them. Your doll quilt is so sweet and your swap partner will be so happy.

I absolutely love the quilt. The backing, is of course perfect.

And you must let me know if the running gets any easier. I haven't started yet, because I'm sure it won't get any easier if I do!

Cheers!

What an awesome doll quilt! The backing is the perfect compliment. Thanks for visiting my blog - I hope we can both get to the place where running is "easier"! :)

I love it, Tine! Especially the quilt backing. I have that same fabric for the backing on Sydney's Christmas stocking : )
