Doll Quilt Swap
Hi there! Just a quick post to check in with all of you. This has been one of those weeks – you know the kind. When nothing is normal, and finding motivation is a challenge. Little Sophia seems to have a flu bug, and is currently asleep on the couch. I’m praying that it doesn’t spread – say a little prayer for me too – k?
Yesterday I finished up my DQS7 quilt top – I really like it! Now to decide how to quilt.
Also from the list, the sample bag is half complete, and I’m half way around Sophia’s quilt binding. I think I will go sit for a bit more with it now.
Many blessings to you today ~Amy—————————————-

I’ve had a couple of good days of mail! Friday my Doll Quilt arrived, and Saturday my STUD mini arrived :) Time for some pictures –
Doll Quilt from Maggistitches -
Over in the discussion thread for DQS we agreed to post a pic of us with the quilt we receive, make it a little more personal. Fun idea – here’s me :)
Here’s the back of the quilt – notice the addition of the front fabrics in the back! So cute.
I really love the quilting too!
Thank you Maggi!

So I peeled myself away from the computer for most of the day and managed to get some quilting taken care of. Feels good too!
For DQS, the partners are secret – it’s fun as you never know who or where your quilt is coming from. I got some ideas from their favorites and slowly developed my plan. I love the end result!
I also finished a quilt for the STUD swap I signed up for this month – but need to wait to share it :) Next up – my swap blocks! I’ve drafted my plans, I just need to find a couple of quiet hours.
This week of Spring Break has been great! No schedule, except for Owen’s naps – don’t want to mess that up :) We started the week with sunshine, however yesterday and today have been WINDY and rainy. Just as well, the colds have been going around with the kiddos – Owen and Emmalie are really congested, and Sophia still has a cough from last weeks ear infection. Just the way this month has gone! I’m so thankful that they are healthy otherwise.
I took all the kids to the dentist this morning – not to bad really! Ella and Em got the full cleaning treatment, while Sophia and Owen sat/laid on my lap while they got checked out. So now Owen is down for a late nap, and I am doing my best to … Read More »
This last week I stumbled on to John’s announcement that DQS was taking sign-ups for the next round! I quickly made way over to flickr to get in on the action. Having done a few swaps in the recent months I was hoping to get in with DQS as they always seem to have beautiful doll quilts for each other. There is no theme, but it is a secret, so you have to “stalk” your partner without them know you are creating for them – fun!
Here’s a little inspiration that I found on flickr . . . all the flowers and birds . . . pretty sure I’m ready for spring to be here :) We still have piles of snow, with a north facing home, it sticks around longer even though it has been warm … Read More »
