Doll Quilt Swap 5 - Received!

I came home from work yesterday to find a package with this gem at my doorstep. I am absolutely over the moon. It was made for me by Gina from Wales in the UK. You can see Gina's pictures here, on her flickr page and check out her blog here.

It's 18-1/2" x 20-1/2". The star is foundation paper pieced, and the glittery rays are embellished. The triangles that make up the star are 4" and the "logs" are 1/2". The star is applique'd to the blue backing. It is exquisitely quilted.

Reading through older posts on her blog she describes me thusly: "I got my partner details today for the Doll Quilt Swap that I've signed up for. I think we were separated at birth. My partner loves deep, bright colours. Just my sort of girl."

Thank you, Gina! I just love this.

Oh! And it came with goodies!
