She’s a peach!

Oh, hi, are you still there? We’ve been busy cramming our summer into the last couple of weeks, it seems, with an RV trip to OH with some of the family and 2 festivals and concerts, and a baseball game tonight. Whew! I’d like to say that it’ll be quieter now and I’ll be able to blog more frequently, but you know how summer activities stack up!

Peachy Keen quilt for DQSII

On the Doll Quilt Swap II front, here’s my quilt in progress, named “Peachy Keen.” The pieced top is now marked and ready for hand quilting. I don’t know how ready *I* am for hand-quilting, but I’ll give it the old college try.

Of course, it took me 5 years to finish college :oD I figure since I graduated from high school a year early, it all evened out.

The photo on the right is the back of the quilt with the “label” info on the long light-colored strip. I’ll let you know how the quilting turns out. I’ve been practicing, and have gotten great advice from Amy and Marisa. I’ll be channeling them both as I go.

  1. Its looking very good.

  2. Love it!

    5 years – that was quick, I took the 7 year complete with a couple of detours (changing majors…)

  3. I like the label. I have been distressed about the mandatory label detracting from my design. This gives me a lot of great ideas!

  4. This is going to be very pretty, I am loving those warm colors :)

  5. You can do it, Lisa ~ I did! Amy said she likes long needles and I used short, but now the binding just needs attaching and it’s done. This one will be hard to part with since it is my first go at hand-quilting . . . but I am already at work on the July Doll Quilt Challenge ~

  6. oh.. i need to do something creative! i’m going to make some flowers for the scarf tonight or something. i’m going non-crazy nuts!

  7. Best of luck w/ your hand quilting! Hope my tips helped!

  8. ok Way off subject, but 2 weeks ago I found the Owl at the top of your blog, at crafters.org and made it. Today I found your blog. I will be coming back! You have way too many cute and fun things here.

  9. It’s looking good, Lisa. Love those colors!
