This was seriously FUN!

I finished up the doll quilt this afternoon and can't wait to make another one. Here are 3 photo's and I'm even including a close-up of the hand quilting. Except for the wonky center, it's not too bad considering I haven't hand quilted anything in several years AND I've never hand quilted without a hoop.

Click on the images to see a larger view. This also counts as a UFO finish (#14 this year) since these blocks were made a very long time ago!

It looks great. And I love the baptist fans on the RWB sampler, too. I have two baby quilts and another Heartstrings quilt to finish and then I'm going to play in my scraps -- just for the pure pleasure of playing!

That is so darling! Must have been wonderful to have a complete change of pace working on this little one by hand. Change is as good as a rest they say!! Bet you won't want to give it away now :)

That's lovely! I must give that hand quilting without a hoop a go. My hand quilting is pretty sloooow (But enjoyable!)
