Finish - Down Under Doll Quilt Swap 2

I love this quilt and it will be hard to give away.

New Liberties with Perle cotton hand quilting.

Backed with a cotton / linen blend call Raw Workcloth (Cloth Australia).

Binding lovingly attached by hand.

And so incredibly soft to touch.

It's going to Aunty Cookie!  I hope you like it Shannon.

I decided to use 80% cotton / 20% polyester batting to try and achieve a more antique look.
I'm happy with the result.  Although I think it will look even better after a wash or two.

I want to thank my gorgeous friend, Kathleen, of Kathleen's Sewing, who sent Mary these gorgeous gifts for her first birthday.

Love the rounded corners!

Thank-you Kathleen!  Mary and I love them!
