I have loved making this doll quilt and taking part in DQS9, even though our house move (right in the middle of it!) did mean I couldn't be as active in the group pool/discussions as I would have liked. I would love to be involved with the next one, when my life will have (hopefully) calmed down a bit.
I got an early start on this and had just about finished it a month ago. However the move really set me back, and even though it was just hand sewing left and I fully intended to get it done during the house move (over optimistic as always!) I have gone practically up to the wire with finishing it.
Anyway, here are some close ups of the different trees:
The 'autumn tree' with an owl nestling amongst it's leaves.
Owl can fly out of the tree and around the forest!
It is the big bad wolf! I decided to make the wolf stay put, that way red riding hood, the owl and all the birds will be safe!!
here. I was teasing you then by showing you the 'secret door' but not what was behind it. It isn't that exciting, but here we go...
I will show you my back label when I know the quilt is safely with it's new owner.
A big thanks to all the swap mamas for their faultless organisation.
I would also like to say a big thanks to Gwen at Celtic Fusion Fabrics who pulled out all the stops and got another piece of red riding hood fabric off to me before she went on holiday, as the first fat quarter didn't include a whole standing wolf.
She also very kindly sent some free small pieces of fabric, just because she is nice! Thanks Gwen, I will definitely be using your store again!
So that's it, I am packing it up now to get it in the post today, along with some treats including one of my 'little tree pincushions', which I thought would be appropriate.
It is hard to say goodbye!! but it is made easier by the knowledge that I will be receiving my own doll quilt very soon!
