She has done an incredible job...including the perfectly machine appliqued acorn and leaves, gorgeous woven borders, impressive free-motion quilting and topstitching with variegated thread.
Perhaps it was due to my just having read several heart-wrenching newspaper articles about Haitian orphans, or maybe an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for such a lovely gift, but I was most verklempt when I saw the quilt in real life today. Thank you so much Hazel. Your work is greatly appreciated!!!
I have done some sewing on my DQS8 doll quilt today. It is so much fun (now that my design has come to life - before that I was a wee bit stressed about making just the right thing!). It's exciting too, to secretly design something especially for someone you've never met. More peeks soon!
