Doll Quilt Swap

This is the quilt I am planning on sending my swap partner for Doll Quilt Swap 7. It is from the book Miniatures in Minutes. The book uses a paper piecing technicque different from any I've used before. You also piece on vellum so that you can see through the paper.

It took some adjusting to but I got the hang of it pretty quick. There are some other quilts in the book I would like to try. This quilt isn't actually in the book. The author Terrie Sandelin posts a project on her website once a month that uses the pattern sheets from the book in a new way. This was August's project.

Today hopefully I will get time to quilt this little quilt and maybe the bowtie quilt that I posted the other day also.

Have a pieceful day!

I am the chosen one! Caryn was generous enough to send this lovely quilt to me. Believe me when I say it is adorable, and it will find a place of honor in my home. Thanks Caryn...and I have really enjoyed looking around your blog. So many lovely things to see!
