I got my Doll Quilt from Swap #6

I received 2 packets today at the post office and I just figured they were both blocks for the Bush Fire Quilt project. Wow was I confused when I opened this packet! I am so used to looking at liberated stars when I open a packet....for a moment I didn't know what I was looking at! It was my quilt from "Doll Quilt Swap #6" See me down below grinning like a fool? It is because I am so stinking thrilled! Anita (Rhubarb Patch) made it for me. I still need to finish the label on my quilt so I can send it off to my partner...but maybe tomorrow. For today I am just so happy to sit and look and my happy little quilt. Anita named it "Red Cross"...I love that name too! Great great work, Anita!

Me and my new quilt!


Look at the lovely loot she sent along with!


Can you see the hand quilting as well as the machine quilting? I love that....well really I love everything about it! The vintage Amy Butler prints...the happy dots and gingham, some text! Ahhhhhhh I LOVE it!!!!!!!

It is already hanging up in my sewing room beside Sarah's Little chicks.
thank you so much!
xo,

Even the back of the quilt is so pretty! I have some of this fabric....I have been saving it for something special.
Thank you Anita!!!!!

I love the string of mini quilts in your sewing room.
What a fun way to brighten up the room and remind you of all the lovely quilts you've received.

Wow, what a slick little quilt! I'd be grinning like a fool too if I'd received a gift like that :- )

I, too, love the clothesline display.
