dqs7 received

I received a package in the mail today....it was my quilt from my dqs7 partner, Gale!
Aren't these fabrics beautiful? And look at all that quilting.
I had to include a photo of this great pieced binding. I think it may be my favorite part!
I must admit I wasn't sure what this cutie was for a minute---duh---it's a measuring tape! How clever.

This has been so fun to participate in. Thanks so much Gale for the doll quilt and all the extra goodies. I really appreciate the beautiful work you did for me!

And maybe you are wondering about the quilt I made for the swap?
I haven't mailed mine yet. I finished it the end of July or the first of August. So why haven't I sent mine? Well I'll tell you. I found out I was supposed to put a label on the back. I've never labeled one of my quilts before. Uh-oh. I'm making myself sit down and figure that out TODAY! I'll let you know how it goes. Ugg.

*gasp* never made a label! That's like breaking a commandment, lol. You can do it!
Your swap partner did good - what a lovely little quilt, and I love that measuring tape!

I am so glad it got there safely!

I loved the pieced border, too. I had so many scraps the right size, so I just went for it. I hope you enjoy the quilt for years to come.

The measuring tape is a Betz White design. She has a blog with lots of tutorials, so check them out!
