Oh My!! DQS opening day

Today is opening day for the 3rd annual EB Doll quilt swap. It is the first year I have taken part, and I am so very glad I did!!

I was sent a beautiful quilt by Cylie and I am in LOVE with it! So much work has gone into this quilt and the colours are wonderful. I have not yet seen all the other quilts from this swap, but I am pretty sure that I must have the best one :)



The back

I was outside this morning, in the rain, trying to remember how to use the manual settings on my camera so I could take good low light photos!

I posted a quilt off to Alissa. I hope she likes it, I did! So much so in fact, that I am making one for me as well!


  1. Pheeeeewwwww. That is the sigh of relief that you liked it. Swap anxiety always hits me. YAY, YAY, YAY!

  2. Both of those are fantastic, the one sent and received well done

  3. Wow, love the quilt Cylie has made you - the circles are fantastic. The the gorgeous quilt you made for Alissa too, beautiful work, well done!

  4. I LOVE MY QUILT!!! (yes I'm shouting)Thank-you Becky xxx

    Oooo your's from Cylie is great too!

  5. They are both gorgeous - cant wait to see all the rest from everyone!

  6. Wow Becky these are both gorgeous - the one you made and the one you sent!
    I do love the circles though it's such a modern and grown-up looking quilt.

  7. Both quilts are just gorgeous! I missed taking part this year, but have had trouble keeping up with my own sewing - may have to join in next year again though!

  8. Wow they both look fantastic. I love those circles

  9. I love them both, fantastic workmanship :o)

  10. The quilt Cylie made for you is stunning. I saw her sneak peek and couldn't imagine what she was doing with the circles on the white. The borders set it off perfectly, and the backing is as good as the front.

    I am also very taken with your little blue-bird of happiness - wouldn't this make a sweet centerpiece for a baby quilt.

  11. thats deginatly a WOW! They are both amazing

  12. You are soooooooooooooooooo lucky to get this little beauty - I actually lusted after it when Cylie posted her sneak peek!

    And your little birdie is so cute :)
