Liberty Charm for DQS5

I joined my first swap - Doll Quilt Swap 5 - and was so excited to make something special.

Just as I started to get going with ideas, I also got my very first handknitting freelance job. As all you crafters out there know, you can't do much else while crafting. I can't even get the audiobook thing down.

When my fingers needed the rest, I worked on my doll quilt bit by bit. And last night, the night before the due date, I finally finished this little quilt.

I love the result, and I hope my swap partner does too.

I used some Liberty fabrics and used a solid red to bind and back. I like the simple but colorful result.

As much as I love this little guy, I felt opening a package of just this doll quilt might be disappointing, so I'm including a bundle of scrap fabric from the French General, one of my favorite stores in LA. I hope my swap partner likes the little fabrics. I can't wait to see what she does with them!

lemme tell you, opening that doll quilt would NOT be disappointing, not even a little bit. No no no - opening a package with that inside would be like every christmas had come at once (well, in my little house it would)

(I popped over from flickr just to admire it some more!)

Such a pretty little quilt, and a great way to show off the Liberty prints. :o)

If anyone is disappointed opening this quilt, they shouldn't be allowed to keep it and should sent it right away to me! I love this quilt! Is there a pattern name or did you design this yourself? I am trying o figure out how it went together and it is making my head hurt!
