Doll Quilt Swap -- Received!

So I have been obsessively checking my mail every day, waiting for my Doll Quilt to arrive. And look at the little beauty I picked up from the post office yesterday!
This was made for me by Sandi . The colours are lovely -- in real life they are a perfect balance between glowing and soft. Check out this quilting:

The free motion quilting on this little beauty is fantastic. I can do wonky / almost straight quilting, but my curvy quilting is terrible, so I was amazed by her mad free motion quilting skills.

Here is the back, which is equally cute:
And as an added bonus, she sent along this very pretty bracelet! How did she know I love jewelery, especially silvery, swirly things?

I am planning to hang this in my hallway, where it can make me smile as I go through my daily rounds with stinky, dirty children (to the bathroom) and laundry baskets (from the bedrooms to the laundry room) and soon enough snow suits and boots (to the outside world) and wide-awake-in-the-middle-of-the-night nurslings (to the couch so no one else wakes up). Thanks for brightening my day, Sandi!
