Finished...

I have finally finished my quilt for the doll quilt swap, phew!
Half way through I started to wonder if I was going to get it finished in time & worse still I really didn't like the way it was looking. I was dreading the thought of sending something to my swap partner that I wasn't very proud of.
Luckily it came good in the end (it is amazing the difference that binding makes) & I am sad to send it on it's way.
Bon voyage, ma petite couette...

It looks gorgeous. I wish I could have signed up but my quilting is nowhere near swap worthy. I am sure your recipient will love it.
