DQS 7 Work in Progress

dqs7 badge

I was so excited about signing up for Doll Quilt Swap 7 after seeing so many gorgeous Doll Quilts on other peoples blogs. I was a bit delayed with my progress due to an accident with a pair of scissors… My middle finger on my left hand is now healing up – no stitches needed, just some steri-strips and a tetanus needle (which hurt more than my finger!). I was inspired by this quilt made by Ros's Mum. This is where I am up to, I should have it finished and posted off to its new home on Wednesday. Each block is 6 inches, and the finished size should be 18 inches square.

BTW - Mrs K had a bouncing baby boy named Koby, Rachel was so excited to tell me when I picked her up from school last week. She is looking forward to having a cuddle with him when Mrs K comes to school for a visit.

I found this delightful and different craft book at the library last week.

I am quite a Jane Austen fan (though DH would say I am more a Mr Darcy fan), so this has been a joy to look through. I am not rushing out to make anything from it just yet, too many UFO’s to finish.

With Love

Oh Janelle i can sympathise, i too am having finger problems (that sounds awful)and haven't been able to do much sewing at all. Your quilt looks gorgeous and i cant believe that there is such a thing as a Jane Austen craft book.

Your quilt is lovely! I always worry about cutting myself, but so far I haven't. Actually, the rotary cutter is the one that really scares me because sometimes I am a bit reckless!

That book looks too neat! I am going to have to look for it at our library:)

v.v. sweet quilt! What is on the background print? Can't quite make it out. JA's SB book is just lovely - I borrowed mine from the library too - kindov a crafter's coffee table book. Did you spot the gorgeous Amy Butler print on one of the pages?
