Down Under Doll Quilt Swap

I finished sewing down the binding on this mini quilt for the Down Under Doll quilt swap and have posted it off to my partner this afternoon.
I ended up hand quilting around each "petal" of the block in a matching thread colour -  I was going to do something different but I am glad that I went with this instead.
The back of the quilt is made up of a paper pieced block using a design by Leila at Where the Orchids Grow.
Because this is a local swap, hopefully it wont take too long for the minis to reach their new homes.
