DQS 10 Finish!


I finished my doll quilt for the well known flickr swap, and it is in the mail off to my partner...



As I previously mentioned, the pattern for the base block is the Ice Cream & Pie pattern by Anythingbutboring Quilts.  This was the pattern that was used in a paper piecing class that I recently took at my LQS and for those of you that have asked, if you call they'll be glad to send it out to you.  The instructor used a similar setting for multiple blocks and I just modified it to fit the DQS size constraints.



I think (and am hoping I am right!) that my partner likes blues and greens so I used a scrappy mixture of prints in those colors, with several prints from the Nicey Jane line. 

It was a windy day here so it was challenging to get a photo, but William held the quilt on our sidewalk so I could get a photo in the sunlight which always shows the truest colors.


If you haven't been following along on flickr, I suggest you check out the group photo pool for lots of eye candy that will have you oohing and ahing!
