doll quilt swap

i signed up to join in doll quilt swap 6, and am so excited. not that i really needed something else to add to my list of sewing projects, but i couldn't pass up the fun. with this swap it is a secret to who you have, and who has you. now if you know me, i have the hardest time keeping secrets so that means i better get this done quickly so i can spill the beans.

after searching my partners flickr fav's, her blog, and the preferences that came with the email; i now have the fabrics picked. the fun flea market fancy fabrics were the perfect match for my partner. they are bright and cheery and will add a little sunshine in her life. :)

i think i've decided on the double hourglass quilt, which was inspired by netties oh, so lovely quilt. i think all the white in the quilt will help offset the lovely brights of the flea market fancy. nettie mentioned it is a bit of an undertaking, but hopefully with this being a doll quilt it will be fun, but challenging. :)

i also made a fun mosiac for my swap partner, to give some little hints of what i'm drooling over! :) these are popping up on flickr in the doll quilt swap group, and are so fun to peek at, seeing what everyone's favorites are.


hope everyone has a magical day!!

  5. Sounds like alot of fun - you make one and send it and someone is making one and sending to you?? Is that how it works? I'd be WAITING for the mailman to bring me the package!
