April's Doll Quilt for Joni and . . .

Well, I haven't heard yet but I am hoping that Joni has received her April Doll Quilt in the Doll Quilt Swap as I sent it to her last week.  I have shown you the back previously and now here is a picture of the front ~

I have never tried anything like this and it was fun to make.

Below are the close ups of the four different blocks and if you click on a picture, you can see the quilting.  This is the first time I have ever tried "custom" quilting.  Compared to the gorgeous quilting so many of you do, it's like  child's play but I sure had fun doing it.  And it's funny, how the eye can see something in a photo that it could not see in person!!  It will just make me think more in the future as I put quilts together!!

And now, here is a sneeky peek at the May Doll Quilt Swap quilt I made for Wilma.  I showed you the darling quilt she made for me this month in an earlier post!!

I just need to put a label on it and then it will go out in the mail on Thursday, so hopefully I can show you the front next week!!

Oh, man, it is sooooooooooooo nice to be able to do some quilting again!!
