I know I said this post was going to be about craft books, but there’s been so much activity in Doll Quilt Swapland, I feel I must give an update:
- Susan M. received one of the pretty patchworks from Maritza, who’s holding a giveaway on her site for one of the other doll quilts she pieced!
- Sarah D. received her package Marisa. I’d posted a sneak peek, but the whole quilt (even the tag!) is gorgeous.
Doh! I just realized I forgot to add the tag to mine before sending it
- Lynn received a beautiful quilt from Beth. Wonderful colors, and its design reminds me of the quilts of Gee’s Bend. Beth, in turn received the pretty repro quilt from Bonnie.
- Sarah G.was the lucky recipient of Kim’s collage quilt, and she’s posted some beautiful photos of both in her flickr photostream.
If you’re playing the “following the updates closely to try to suss out who your sender is” game, maybe one of THESE is your quilt:
- Susan S.‘ appliqued and hand-quilted beauty. And I’m sorry, but that dung beetle with his ball of poop at the top of her post is hilarious.
- This charming log cabin from Liz. Those colors are so nice, aren’t they? I always love a log cabin.
- Take a look at the lovely floral fabric Sarah L. included in her quilt.
- Monica’s bright and pretty repro quilt.
I’ve heard from almost everyone that they have sent or will shortly be sending their quilts, so I’m very pleased with that! We all know how our schedules and sewing machines can sometimes conspire against us around deadline time :o) And don’t forget, US swappers, some of the packages are traveling from the UK or Australia, so don’t fret if you are still waiting on yours.
Next post: craft books, I swear. AND a 100th post giveaway! Yay! *blows party horn*
