Okay so I have done this Doll Quilt Swap thing….uh….let me check…four times now….(I had to go check how many I have here about the house)...This time I was actually only ONE day late sending it out—(a near miracle I might add) So without further adieu, here is the one I sent out to Kim:
Kim said that she loved owls and Amy Butler fabrics so here is a little of both with, of course, other scraps from my cutting table messes.. The owls are from Amy Schimler, and I actually had to look for owl fabric because I had none…I originally wanted something more vintage looking…but I have kinda fallen in love with these little guys…so I will be making an owl quilt for myself with the remainder…one of these days…
And here is the back:
And I sent these fat quarters with it for an extra treat:
And here is the one I received from Rachel....I love how the hexagons are asymmetrical and not completely finished—Rustic but Contemporary!
That’s it for Doll Quilt Swap pictures…probably for this year. I am wrapping up two more quilt for Free Spirit Fabrics right now, and those pictures will be posted soon. Anna Maria Horner is coming out with a new line in flannel and Douglas Day already has a second line to follow up his Be a Man line that debuted this spring! I am doing both of those quilts for the Free Spirit Booth for Quilt Market in Houston…coming up fast!
I apologize that I haven’t written an entry in here since the end of August. I have been so busy with these latest projects, my head has spinning…there are some other projects that are even bigger bubbling under the surface to that are even more exciting to me…but for now I gotta get back to the studio! Drop a line and let me know what your last few days of summer have been like…I think we only have one or two official days left and then it’s Autumn folks….like it or not (frankly, I LOVE it!!)
Keep Sewing, Keep Happy,
