from my friend

Pin It I got some happy mail this week (and in record time from Canada too!)

One day, Krista (of Poppyprint fame) and I were lamenting the fact that we hadn't been paired with someone we knew in a swap...
*bing!* (that's the sound of a lightbulb)...
So we decided to do a little side swap of our own.

Doll quilt/pillow from Krista

She asked me if I wanted a pillow or a doll quilt... I requested a pillow cover with binding so it could masquerade as a wall hanging if necessary.

But since it matches my couch quilt, and another French General quilt I have in the works, I have a feeling it will remain a pillow (though I do need to pick up a bigger pillow form)

Beautiful doll quilt/pillow from Krista

A final note --
Should you ever see that Krista has signed up for a swap -- join that swap pronto, in hopes that she might be your partner.

Her work... flawless.

Even the back of this pillow is gorgeous, and with buttons!

gorgeous back

Thank you Krista!  I adore this little quilty project... adore, adore, adore.

(Now you just need to come to Quilt Market with E and I). :)

So pretty! Great job, Krista :-)

It is lovely! Lucky you. I love her stitching on the dresden.

Regina said...

So pretty! Love the red stitching.

Speaking of pretty pillows. I got something in the mail today. Love it! Thanks so much! Your tag is beyond cute. Did you order them on Etsy?

Mama Pea said...

Very cute and very clever to have a pillow cover you can use as a wall hanging!

Karen said...

This is SO pretty...lucky you!

I thought she was my friend. I didn't realise she was your friend. Now I feel like Denny Crane when Alan Shaw is friend with Gerry Espenson. Maybe it's just me that watches Boston Legal! Lovely cushion (as we call it over here). I'm a teensy bit jealous.

Darling! It looks just like you! :)

Sara said...

Your style indeed---enjoy all that yummy red!!

Angela said...

lol @ have so many friends!

the pillow is beautiful...hats off to Krista!

Elsa said...

It's really nice and does match your quilt!
I saw a quilt in the Sundance catalogue very similar to yours that I want, but now that I've see yours I want to make one now!
Thanks so much for the inspiration!

Manda said...

Very beautiful!

I'm so glad you like it Tracey. That crown in the center was fussy cut just for you, Queen of Dresdens. Thanks for giving me the inspiration to try my first dresden!! I loved making it, knowing you enjoyed the French General line and that you already had a quilt to match!! Sorry it's so big, but with pillows honestly, you've gotta go big!
