Doll Quilt Swap Quilt – Finished!, originally uploaded by Cathi O’Neill.

Package Ready to Send!I got this finished yesterday, woo hoo! It will be out the door and on its way to….???? before our trip to Portugal tomorrow. I feel I cheated on it slightly as I decided to machine the binding on, though I hand finished it…so only the binding was done by machine on this. I really want to keep it, lol, so that is a good sign right? It is the first thing I have hand quilted and finished!

I’ve included some scraps and had fun wrapping it with a wide strip of Civil War repro fabric…

Here is a photo of the back of the quilt, you can kinda make out which blocks are where with the quilting designs…Back of the Doll Quilt

I plan on bringing my sock knitting and a hand piecing project, my applecore quilt, to Portugal for evenings and quiet times, if there are any!
