My Monthly Doll Quilt Swap

 A few months back I began to participate in the Monthly Doll Quilt Swap.  You can connect with them using the Button on the Sidebar of my blog.  I've had so much fun.  Of course it's really nice to receive a quilt you didn't make (and I've received some really neat quilts!) but it has been fun to create a quilt for someone else....someone you haven't known and to spend a bit of time getting to know them.

Last month I got to know Karen and I decided to fore go the suggested theme of "animals" and go with SPRING.  I had an idea for a daffodil quilt and was quite pleased at how it went together.  Here is a pic Karen just sent to me of the little quilt with her own vase of daffies and a pic of her grands.  Looks pretty good, I think in its home.

This month Patty and I were teamed up and since we both like Civil War Reproduction fabrics we went with that as a theme.  This blue bordered quilt was made by Patty and sent to me.  Isn't it wonderful?  I love the fabrics and the little baskets of poseys.  I shall treasure it.


Patty hasn't yet received my quilt yet (it's in the mail.....!) and I'll post a full photo when she receives it.  But here is a tiny sneek peak.



I'm taking a break for the month of May (super busy for me), but I'll be back in June.  I enjoy the making, sending and receiving of these gems.

Hey Brenda those daffodils are too cute and perfect where she has placed the little quilt. Nice work.
What a lovely setting she did.
