A Finish and a Win

I finished my doll quilt for the Doll Quilt Swap hosted by Lori at Humble Quilts.  

The quilt is 16" x 24" and was fashioned after an antique doll quilt I saw on pinterest.  It was so much fun making and hand quilting.

I also made my recipient a sewing bag and pin cushion.

I hope she likes it.  It went into the mail today and should arrive at its destination on Saturday

Now for the win.  Last week I was visiting one of my favorite blogs "Geoff's Mom" and she was having a giveaway.  I won a pattern on my choice.

This is the pattern I chose.  It came on Tuesday and yesterday Hubby and I went for a ride and ended up at my favorite quilt shop "Linda's Country Quilts".  I needed some shirting's for the background and some Cheddar.  They are in the wash right now.  I forgot to take a picture.

So for 2 days I haven't gotten much done.  Hoping to make up for it today. The weather here is fantastic.  Suppose to get up to 60 degrees out.  So the windows are open so I can listen to the birds as I sew.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Cathy

You've had a terrific week and the birds are happy too. Your doll exchange quilt is precious. The ones I've seen so far should make everyone thrilled.

What a charming doll quilt! I love your zipper bag and pin cushion! The pattern you won looks challenging... at least to me!

I couldn't participate in the doll quilt swap but am so enjoying seeing what everyone has made.

I have the blocks cut out for Loch Lomond and ready to stitch. Where they are right now is a mystery though.
