“And they’re off!”
It’s been about a week and a half since most of us received our partner information. While many swappers are taking their time deciding what their quilts will look like, others hit the ground running.
Swap Mama Susan knew right away which design she’ll be tackling this round: layered, appliquéd circles in her partner’s favorite colors. Love the dots-within-dots, and even dotted fabric!
Samantha searched her stash for the colors her partner prefers and came up with these vibrant fabrics:
…which became these blocks:
Rebecca got right to work: sketching, planning, and sewing a bird-y quilt, but her son fell in love with it, so she’ll have to come up with Plan B!
I’m guessing Megan‘s having so much fun with her new-ly acquired free-motion quilting skills that she might just use them for the swap!
Lynne had made some charming wonky butterflies and flowers for another project. She liked them so much that they might appear in her DSQ4 quilt.
(p.s. if you want to try the butterflies yourself, she’s generously provided a great tutorial for them.
I loved seeing Leah‘s sketch becoming quilt-y reality, in the form of scrappy LeMoyne stars.
Laura Jay is busy turning this stack of fabric into an I-Spy crazy quilt. *I* spy a cutie quilt in the making ;o)
Great work, all! How are YOU doing on YOUR quilt? We’d love to hear your ideas and see your progress on the Doll Quilt Swap flickr group discussions or photo pool.
If I’m your Swap Mama, e-mail me (losabia at yahoo dot com) a link to what you’re doing, and I’ll be happy to include it in the next update!
