Doll Quilt Swap quilt set finished

Hurray I have finished my group of three teeny quilts for the doll quilt swap, ready to be sent off to my secret partner later on in the year. I can't show the right hand quilt because it is a dead giveaway as to who the quilt is for so I have hidden it beneath a piece of fabric which says "I told him it was unwise to make me choose between him and my fabrics. I will miss him though."
The back makes up the label telling my partner who made the quilt, when and why and and says:
"OK so who is this quilt for?"
"XXXX who calls herself XXXX. Don't ask why she doesn't use her real name, none of them do"
"And who made it?"
"Lynne from the UK who calls herself Lily. Lily isn't her real name so why she called herself that, I do not know."
"And why did Lynne make this quilt for XXXX"
"She made it to give to her in the 2010 Flickr Doll Quilt Swap. Again, don't ask. There's a bunch of quilters who swap little doll quilts that dolls don't even get to play with"
"Mmm. Weird"

  1. I just love it!! They are so beautiful and imaginative! The back is adorable, I love the conversation. The whole thing is so FULL of great ideas! I can't actually express enough how much I really love them! All I can say is "I am Spartacus and so is my wife!"
