NB: Some ninny got the date wrong when the Festival closed, so now I'm just sharing not linking :(
I finished this quilt earlier this year, before I started this blog. Its a small quilt 23.5" x 27.5" designed to fit my Goddaughters doll crib.(Sorry about the bad photos, I took the photos on a very cloudy day) This was the third quilt I'd ever made and it was a gift for Christmas 2010 however I only finished and posted it to her at the end of February 2011, that still counts as Christmas right?

This shows the lovely quilting that by the very lovely Faye did for me over the Christmas holidays.

I also made a little matching pillowcase to got with it. I tried to match the front and the back of the quilt and the pillow so she could reverse them if she chose.

Lastly I put a sweet little label on the back. The quilt pattern was a free pattern from the Marcus Fabrics website. I like to think its both modern and timeless(just humour me ok :) ). All the fabric except the pink sparkly fabric was from my stash. The floral print on the back is more like a voile so when Faye quilted it she put a lining fabric underneath and it worked really well.
I loved making it and it was hard to let go of but I'm told she loved it and she and her doll slept with it that night. So totally worth it!
I'm going to the Craft and Quilt Fair today(wish my feet luck!) but the Bloggers' Quilt Festival is also a great way to spend a Sew-Inspiration Sunday!
