Doll Quilt Swap


Getting There

Posted on August 20th, by Amy in Doll Quilt Swap, work in progress. 24 comments

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!

Swap Til You Drop – Spring Flowers mini from Tracy!

And extras :)I love the concentric square quilting on this one too! This is why I have loved getting into swaps – the quilty goodness that comes back to me :) There’s a link in my previous post for a swap … Read More »


Doll Quilt Swap 6

Posted on April 22nd, by Amy in Doll Quilt Swap, finished quilt. 39 comments

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.

Blessings ~Amy


DQS6 Sneak Peek

Posted on April 9th, by Amy in Doll Quilt Swap, work in progress. 23 comments

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 »


Doll Quilt Swap 6

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 »
