185: Doll Quilt Swap # 7

August 25th, 2009

Here is one of those mostly picture posts…hope you don’t mind… I got signed up for Doll Quilt Swap 7, and my swap partner likes owls..so I found some Owls by Amy Schimler…and started playing….I paid absolutely no attention to any rules…it wasn’t easy, but I like the results….Hope my DQS7  buddy does! 

Strips sewn somewhat randomly…

strippy decisions        sneaky owls  more bar blocks

interviewing backdrops   …..bar blocks in waiting 


A  wonky wrench…

Final sashing choice….the tree lines up....kinda

See how the trees in the wrenches sorta line up….kinda…

So I showed you what I have been up to…(actually only a tiny bit, but it is something)…what are you doing???

    What a lucky partner you have. You can get it finished before the deadline, no problem. I also participated in DQS7; thankfully I finished mine a few weeks ago.

    Now if I can ever stop procrastinating on mailing it!

    What fun…what a great way to use up those smaller pieces that are still really cool.
    What am I doing? I just today finished the top and bottom of a quilt for my son’s bed. Now to get busy and quilt it, it just might even be finished by his birthday. =o)

    I am a lucky girl! Love it Scott! First word that came out of my mouth when I opened it, “Owls!” Second words, “Look! A man did this!” while looking disapprovingly at my boyfriend sitting watching t.v.

    Glad you likey! I actually have become a little more attached to owls myself after working on it. (oh, and sometimes I do watch TV too…so don’t be too hard on your man, we all need some sort of zone!)

    LOL! You are so right about the t.v. Actually the t.v. is a good distraction for him while I’m sewing! I forgot to thank you for the fat quarters! I love them too! I’ll have to hide them from my niece who claims the best fabric for her projects.
