I got this finished yesterday, woo hoo! It will be out the door and on its way to....???? before our trip to Portugal tomorrow. I feel I cheated on it slightly as I decided to machine the binding on, though I hand finished it...so only the binding was done by machine on this. I really want to keep it, lol, so that is a good sign right? It is the first thing I have hand quilted and finished!
I've included some scraps and had fun wrapping it with a wide strip of Civil War repro fabric...
Here is a photo of the back of the quilt, you can kinda make out which blocks are where with the quilting designs...
I plan on bringing my sock knitting and a hand piecing project, my applecore quilt, to Portugal for evenings and quiet times, if there are any!
The cool protectors for the ends of my sock needles I bought off of etsy from lunastrixae
I can't believe you made those tiny, tiny blocks! Wonderful doll quilt.
Have a great time in Portugal!
Now that is an amazing piece of quilting. Anyone would certainly long to own that! What a beautiful little doll quilt.

Can't wait to discover the lucky quilter who will be receiving your darling doll quilt! It

It's lovely. Have a nice holiday in the sun.
A finish - woo hoo!! Beautiful little quilt :)
I have been lurking through your blog and want to say hello. I am so impressed by your many travels and jobs. And now you are living in Ireland!
Your quilts are beautiful. I learned to quilt while living in Oregon when my daughter was small. Unfortunately I barely have time to knit, let alone quilt.
Wonderful seeing the doll quilt finished...you did a great job--hooray! Lovely fabrics. That applecore looks like fun--neat effect. Have a splendid holiday! ((HUGS))
What a beautifl quilt. Wow, all hand done, save the binding. I need to get busy, you have helped inspire me to work on a top that needs hand piecing. Have fun in Portugal.
Well done, Cathi--blocks from Dear Jane, right? Hope yo uhave a great time on your trip.
I love the Doll quilt Cathi, will you keep the one you receive or will it go to one of your girls?
Thanks for the encouragement on the weight loss, that was earlier in the year! At a standstill now, but it is winter time here! My excuse.
I have tagged you on my blog, not sure if you have done it before or not. No pressure.
What a beautiful quilt, it looks lovely.

Love the doll quilt. Great job!http://nikisventures.blogspot.com/
I really admire those itsy little blocks. I like to make small quilts myself, but I am not technically gifted. So they don't come out looking like that LOL
Your doll quilt is adorable! What a lot of work! Glad you had a great time in Portugal, too.
