gifts and crafts

It's been a while since I finished a little doll quilt for the lovely Amy.
Finally I'm able to show the quilt on my blog too.

I can't remember when I started this quilt. It must be in in june this year.
I stared to paperpiece the stars with no idea in mind what to make out of these.
The idea came into my mind while looking at old children books.

I added a few Hoppel's to make the quilt even more fun.
The stars all all appliqued by hand (and the Hoppel's too).

I think I worked 2 month (with breaks of course) on this quilt and when I finished it I wasn't sure if it's good enough to send it away.

Do you know the feeling after working on a project for such a long time and starting to dislike it ?

Because I wasn't sure about sending this doll quilt away (because I didn't like it anymore) I started to make a few things for Amy.
I wanted the package to be fun and usefull too.
I decided to add a little iphone case because everybody needs a fun case to keep the phone safe and warm.

I really love Amy's work. Her sense of fabric and colours is awesome. I think I've never seen anything on Amy's blog which I didn't like at all <3
Her work is adorable !!

Because Amy is such a lovely girl she couldn't resist and already sent me again sth. in return.
I sent Amy a few little pieces (with some other fabric scraps) from my fave lecien collection (which Amy really loved) and she turned it immediately in a super cute needle case for me.

She used the left overs from making hexagons. I can't describe how much I love this cute needle book.
Amy must be able to read my mind because I really needed a needle book for my travel crafting kit.

It's really hard to resist Amy's cute work. My little niece was in love too.

Dear Amy,

thank you for making such super things. You are AWESOME !!!!

  2. Such a gorgeous swap between Amy and you! You two are both so creative in your own way and I just love to see what you guys come up with. Isa, how could you not like the adorable quilt? If I were you, I would not be able to give it away. It has so many cute details which make me go eek!
