All Doll Quilts, All the time

I just posted an announcement over at the Doll Quilt Swap blog that we are ending the registrations early. At 100 swappers! I hate for anyone to be disappointed at missing the signups, but I had noooo idea that the swap would become so popular. I’d hate more if the swap experience was lessened or compromised by us not being able to keep up with questions and stay on top of the swappers’ progress, so it had to be done. Boo! Please help spread the word on change if you happened to post about the deadline on your blog.

In much, much happier news, I received my swap quilt from Michelle last week.

Isn’t it pretty? It was showcased on Whipup for their May miniature quilt challenge, and rightly so. All the stitching: the piecing as well as the quilting, was done by Michelle’s own two talented hands.

 The binding is stitched and mitered so beautifully, it’s ridiculous, and I mean it in the nicest possible way.

It took a while for me to recognize that the rows progressed in rainbow order. I was just so agog at all the fabrics and handwork. The quilt includes batiks and calicos, a mix of new and vintage cottons. This is one of my favorite sections.

I’m humbled and grateful at having received such a work of art. What a treasure. Thank you, Michelle.

    Now I’m worried about signing up for the quilt swap. I hope I don’t embarrass myself!!

  10. Oh, Lisa, you’re so welcome. You deserve it for running such a fabulous swap, and encouraging me to sign up even though you knew that meant you’d get your quilt late. Funny about not noticing the rainbow effect, I told my husband it took you a while to see it, and his response? “Oh, you did a rainbow?” Ha!

    Oh, by the way, would you be my publicist, or my agent should I ever need one? :0)

  11. A truly great quilt. Wonderful fabric selection.
