Doll Quilt Swap 5 (DQS5)

After spending all day carving at the GOOD WIVES COMPANY quilt, fabric, and gift shop I came home to this wonderful doll quilt, that had arrived in the mail. This little quilt was made by Denise Enberg (Sewz4fun). It's about 24 inches square, and is the most precise and accurately made piece I have seen in a long long time. It's made of civil war reproduction fabrics, and is quilted with a combination of "in the ditch", straight line diagonal, rope design in the border, and different florishes in the corners. Dang! there's probably more too. Every time I look at it I find something else.

This was the first swap that I have ever been in. Daughter Tracy talked me into it. I am glad she did. I am, however, going to be spending some additional time in an attempt to improve my own skills in quilting. Thank you Tracy for the nudge to get involved in these doll quilt swaps, and a huge thank you to Denise for such a grand doll quilt.

What a lovely quilt, she done a remarkable job. I love the fabrics she used. Looks like you had a great day at the quilt shop as well. I have to tell you I received your package today and they amazing. You have so much talent. I can't possibly tell you just how much I love them. I will cherish these always. I plan on making you something in return, but must tell you it won't be near as great as what you have made. These will be on my tree every year from here on out, and after I'm gone I plan to pass these down to my daughters. I can't Thank You enough. Hugs Donna
