Pushing my quilty envelope...

 
One of the things I missed most when I took leave from quilting was the swaps!  When I saw Lori at Humble Quilts post her upcoming doll swap I joined up right away.  I came across this photo of a vintage quilt that is or at one time was for sale and decided that I wanted to replicate it. The only information I had about the original quilt was that it was about 19" square.  I started with a plan to make the 9 patch blocks finish at 3"  The other elements were guestimates...
 
 
 
And this is the quilt that I managed to piece... 
 
 
I'm excited about getting it basted and quilted before I leave on Friday.  If things go smoothly I may even be able to get the binding and label finished and make the post office before they close.  I hope my swap partner likes it!
