DQS9 complete

My entry for the Flickr Doll Quilt Swap #9.

The piecing is pretty good if I do say so myself, and the quilting isn't bad either. I stitched a few lines of silver filament through the dark grey squares to give a chain impression, gives it a lovely subtle sheen. The binding, however, is not great. I've really struggled lately with binding and I made many mistakes on this one. Oh well, hopefully that will be overlooked by it's new owner...

After being loose for more than 4 weeks it finally came out. It had to be 'helped' a bit, we had corn on the cob for dinner and he was wincing every time he took a bite because the tooth was so loose it was stabbing his gum... so he let me pull it for him.

He has been a slow teether his entire life. His baby teeth were slow to come in, they've been even slower to come out (he's 7 and this is baby tooth #4 to come out). His big brother was the same way though.

Fabric is really, really fun to buy, and really, really hard to get at a decent price in Canada. So I do most of my shopping online. This is my latest acquisition... it's not quite as bad as it looks, these are mostly precuts and were mostly on sale.. can't wait to cut into these puppies!
