Doll Quilt Swap received........are we twins..........

Wow what a great mail today................I got my quilt from Maree in the Doll Quilt Swap.................
are we twins or not............actually it is quite weird with us girls..............so many times we do/say things the same it is scary..............in a good way..............
remember my quilt in the last post..............yep nine patch set on point.............I cracked up when I opened the parcel..............wondering how Maree kept it together and quiet once she had opened the parcel from me knowing we had both made pretty much the same quilt................
Maree's hand quilting is much better then mine...........you can't quite see here but the cross hatching is all over the quilt............it just doesn't show in the pic on the middle.............
I am stoked and I love it............
Better pack it in with the show and tell for Girls Day in the Country..................only a bit more binding to do on the Gardener's Journal...........but it is just too warm and steamy here tonight to have a quilt on my lap...........
Oh and I had some other things to keep me busy I helped a couple of girls get started with blogs................
you all know how exciting it is once you get a comment .....
........head over and give them a welcome and introduce yourself...........
Catch you later..............

  14. The doll quilts are very nice, both of them. I've made LOTS of doll clothes, but never a doll quilt. I'll have to try it.

    I went to visit your new bloggers and give them a welcome. Lots of people were ahead of me so they are getting a satisfying number of comments.
