Secret Quilting Business

I had a special project to complete this week.

Doll Quilt

Something that had to be done quickly.

Doll Quilt

I really enjoyed doing it.

Doll Quilt

But as it's a big surprise for someone.

Doll Quilt

I can't tell you what it is - or I'd have to kill you!!

No seriously, it's a big surprise for someone very special and I will reveal all when it arrives at its destination.

Now I'm off to start 9 Christmas decorations for the Freshly Blended Holiday Ornament swap. I have a lovely group of women from America, Canada and even an Aussie girl to swap with. And lucky me because one of them is one of my favourite bloggers house on hill road. I can't wait to see what will turn up in the mail.

Coming out of lurkdom to say I love that quilt! It is beautiful! I love all the greens.

I looked at my stash the other day and realized I have barely any greens... gonna have to work on that! :-)

Also love the binding... I am in love with striped bindings!

I enjoy reading your blog and have to come out of lurkdom as well to tell you how much I LOVE this little quilt.
The colors are awesome, what a wonderful collection of greens you have used and with the crisp white...perfect!
the binding is great too, never can go wrong with striped fabrics for binding in mho!
thanks for sharing and boy do I wish I was the lucky receiver of this quilt!

That quilt so beautiful, Louise! I love your combo of greens, and is it all hand-quilted? Very impressive! I've only ever hand quilted one cot quilt and that took about six months.

It is beautiful - those greens with the white are just so fresh - someone is going to be thrilled for sure!!!

that is gorgeous!!
My ornament swap group has loads of Aussie girls - I would think they are probably a bit disappointed most of their decorations aren't going much further!
