It's Here!! My Doll Quilt arrived!!

Oh, this morning was so exciting, I tell ya... The postman came and there was an envelope with return address Marianne Penner.... (Maripen Quiltmom) As I knew she wasn't sending me anything I knew off... I realized immediately it HAD to be my doll quilt and it was!!!

It was this lovely quilt with the birdie on the tree and the gorgeous girly fabrics on the back! (It arrived fine Marianne, no worries!)

Just look at the detail Marianne quilted in this! The legs are embroidered as is the centre of the eye and the fabrics are so cleverly chosen to make the eye pop out!

The back is lovely too with those gorgeous fabrics and fantastic label! In fact, I commented on this quilt on several occassions as I really loved it but never thought it would come to me! Lucky me!!!

The quilting detail is lovely too with swirls and leaves..

Although you see this better on the back of the quilt.

To top it all off it was lovingly wrapped in a lovely Heather Bailey FQ. One of my favourite lines (I made an entire quilt in Pop Garden and Bijoux) and can't get enough of this particular one!

Definitely one of the quilts on my wishlist and what a surprise! THANK YOU so much Marianne for all your hard work. You wrote: "Hope my partner loves it. It's a little hard for me to part with but I'm glad it is going to someone who I know will appreciate it!" and you are SO right! I appreciate all the hard work you put into it and the loving wonderful quilting and finish (even hanging sleeves included... now why did I not think of that?). I love the quilt and will find it a place of honour in my sewing room!

That's such a gorgeous quilt! Love the little bird and all those pretty fabrics. How lucky are you!!

Marianne said...

Yay, Marguerite. I'm glad it arrived safely. I hope it all steamed out OK after I had packaged it in a rolling tube and then had to disassemble it at the post office!

I'm glad you like it and it meant so much to me that you commented on it in flckr before you knew it was yours, so much easier to part with it then!
