A Doll Quilt for Lily from Linda in Ohio

Because Lily helped with the chequerboard quilt that I made for the doll quilt swap on the Quilting Board forum, I asked my partner Linda (not the same Linda that I have swapped with before) to send the quilt straight to Lily.

We visited Lily and her family yesterday, a really enjoyable day trip to South Wales.  While the grown ups all sat around drinking tea in the front room the dolly was watching us, snuggled under her quilt.

Didn't Linda do a fantastic job!  She managed to choose colours that go perfectly in Lily's house, and the quilt has nice soft wadding so it wraps easily around the doll.

Also, what makes the quilt extra special is that Linda took the opportunity to start her granddaughters off using the sewing machine, choosing a basic strip design so they could have nice easy runs of stitching.

Thank you Linda and granddaughters - Lily loves her quilt!
