DQS11 Received!

A parcel arrived in the mail today which in itself is not unusual, but this one  ~ from the Doll Quilt Swap Group ~ I had been stalking the postman for rather impatiently and was therefore a welcome sight.


How cute it this?  Made by Mary from Mary on Lake Pulaski these teeny tiny squares are just 1/2 inch squares.  The quilt itself measures only 9 1/2 inches x 9 1/2 inches and is called Rainbow Trip Around the World ~  it is perfect in every way!


I really love these tiny squares, the matching seams, and the flowing colors.  Mary, you know me well!  You've made the perfect doll quilt, perfectly pieced and quilted, in a timeless layout that I truly love.


This doll quilt is already hanging on the wall together with a growing collection of doll quilts.  There it will be admired every day. 

More doll quilts can be seen in the Flickr DQS Group.  Join up for the next swap round!

  1. How lovely to own a gorgeous doll quilt from the lovely Mary! And you have taken such beautiful pics of it Rita. I look at the one you made me last year every day, it hangs in our living room. I'm sure you will cherish this one. xo
