A Parcel Tied With A Pink Bow...

...was waiting for me when I got home from work today. ( it was in a bubble post pac envelope but that doesn't sound as nice). I had no idea what it could be... I didn't recognise the sender... I waited a few minutes before I opened it. A beautifully wrapped present should be appreciated, once unwrapped there's no going back...and it's fun to savour the anticipation.

Curiosity soon got the better of me and I ripped into the tissue paper... and out came a Doll Quilt!!! Woo hoo!! or should I say Angel Quilt, which is a Doll Quilt Swap term for a quilt that is made for you if the quilt you're supposed to receive has gone missing. In my case the amazing Carol Turznik aka as Mamacjt sent me this little beauty.
What a happy, colourful, sweet, cheery, fun quilt! It's a quilt of eternal Spring! Love that cute little bird with curly tail feathers and the swirly, twirly quilting is so perfect. I love this little quilt!!

Carol very generously included lots of fabulous fabrics as extra goodies. A swag of cotton yumminess!!
Thank you so much Carol!!! You're an angel!!

PS. My heart goes out to my secret partner who has made me a beautiful doll quilt that seems to have gone missing. I still hope it turns up one day or is returned to it's sender. I hate the idea of it being lost and lonely somewhere. Fingers crossed that it shows up soon!

Cheerio

What a gorgeous quilt, I love everything about it and it's the first time I've heard the term angel quilt. I do hope the lost one finds it's way back home to the maker.

What an Angel!!! That quilt is to die for!! How cute is it.....quilt envy now :-) I hate it when post goes missing. I am still waiting for some wool from UK and some crochet squares that are part of a granny square swap I am involved in. Might have to call on the Angels for that one as it is now 2 months late. Still I live in eternal hope :-)

Carol is an angel for making that beautiful quilt for you. It's absolutely gorgeous. I do hope the lost quilt eventually finds it's way back home or to you.

I know this was ages ago, but I wondered how long your quilt had been missing before it turned up? I sent something to someone before Christmas (only four suburbs away!) and it hasn't turned up yet. Aus Post has always been very good to me, so I think I'll wait for at least a few more weeks (or should I wait longer?) before sending another. LOVE both of your quilts by the way (was just showing Zoe - my 9 yr old daughter - your angel quilt and she was so inspired she started a project! Hopefully she will finish it so that I can blog about it!!).
