Doll Quilt Swap (DQS10) - Tile Quilt Completed!

Finally finished the hand binding on my DQS10 quilt.  I think this is my best work yet - of course the pattern and the beautiful fabric made this possible.

This tile quilt was raw edge appliqued with matching or variegated thread and quilted in the ditch.  I chose to finish up the quilt with just a simple binding so not to distract the eyes form the image.   

Here's the back view of the quilt!  I haven't added the label yet, who could it be for?   

Here are two close up views of the quilt!  

I hope this quilt has a place in your home, partner!

After thought:  I feel so fortunate to be participating in Doll Quilt Swap.  These doll (mini) quilts are perfect for trying out new technique and challenging oneself.

Doll Quilt Swap (DQS10) - Tile Quilt

I'm so lucky to be participating in this round of Doll Quilt Swap.  Here's our swap button

After stalking through my secret swap partner's inspiration mosaic, I came up with the following pattern and fabric selection.

This is a pattern from the book "Tile Quilt Revival" by Carol Gilham Jones & Bobbi Finley.  My partner likes bright colors so I'm going with KF fabrics.  Hope she'll like it!   ((Find it at Flickr)
