Doll-sized quilts are flying all across quilt-land as part of Doll Quilt Swap 6 (DQS6). After seeing the fabulous and creative doll quilts being made, I finally joined in during DQS5. It was such fun, I joined up again for DQS6.
Today I received my quilt. I can’t stop looking at it:
It was made by the talented and wonderful Tia at Campfollowerbags–I’m sure you’ve heard of Tia! She makes bags and quilts from military uniforms. Most recently, she conceived and spearheads an effort to make Bushfire Quilts for families in Victoria, Australia. I am amazed and inspired by how much she does! With that in mind, I am totally blown away by receiving my DQS6 quilt from her. And I am blown away by the quilt–there is so much detail in this quilt!
There are ZIG ZAGs, hand stitching, machine stitching, shot cottons, Kaffe prints, Liberty prints, gingham, black and white text, map fabric. I think she’s been up inside my head rooting around to see what I like.
I can’t get over it. Did I mention the back:
I aspire to all of this detail!
Look at these weensy (as opposed to wincey…) strips in the triangles:
Those are some tiny AND FLAT strips!
That binding is awesome!
Tia also included some gorgeous fabrics and a great Australian mag:
Thank you so very much, Tia! Thanks also to the DQS6 organizers and my group swap mama, Katy!
Pardon me, I have to go back to looking at my quilt…
Oh, I don’t know if/when there will be a DQS7. We’ll let the organizers catch their breath for a while and then start hounding them for another round. Keep an eye on the DQS Flickr page for announcement, if you’re interested.
