More on the Doll Swap Quilt

I've finished the selvage quilt for Doll Quilt Swap 7. I quilted it a lot more closely than I have ever quilted anything else. Which is a big deal considering the "throat" on this sewing machine is about 5-1/2". There's not a lot of space to maneuver anything around.

I'm not going to post a picture of the finished quilt until September, when I ship the quilt to its new home, but I did take a picture of myself holding it.
This looks very easy, but it's not. I'm standing on a small stool, and I can't use a flash. The quilt is really too big to hold with one hand. You do get a pretty good view of my sewing studio.

You can click the photos to enlarge.

The quilt is really pretty. I may have to rethink what I do with all those lovely selvages.

I just love it! The quilting is perfect for this quilt. I think at some point I may need to make a selvage quilt. It is just too cute.

The quilt is gorgeous and the narrow quilting is perfect for it (and I see your talent extends into gymnastics too :o)

I really like this little doll quilt! I like the selvages and the quilting is great - just what it needed, looks like. And being able to hold a quilt, stand on a stool and take a picture (without grimacing) - that's just awesome!

I really like the quilt. I also like the mini-Monty with his arms around both mini-Millies.
