Here are some photos from my group ~ These 15 have either been received or are on their way right now. There are 5 others also on their way, but I don’t have pics for them.

With only a few weeks to go, thought I’d share some progress shots from my group!
Marilyn has a yummy selection of fabrics.
Amanda is doing some 9 patches.
This beauty from Alison is already on its way to it’s new home.
Megan is still thinking how to quilt this stunning design.
And Tamara is thinking about this cute skipping girl.

I can hardly believe some quilters are finished so soon with their dqs5 quilts ! Wow ! I’ve looked around at what my group has shown us and found these from diddledaddledesigns, Michelle Brown and TLHCrawford.

I must, because our swappers are smoking! Just take a look at some of these quilts:
While you are busy drooling over those beauties, I thought I’d also put in a special request. Please email your swap mama when you have sent your quilt off and please be sure to post at the group (you can email us too if you’d like) once you receive your quilt. It is challenging to keep up with where everyone is at in the process, so any help you can give will be most appreciated.
Quite late, but an update nonetheless!
Lynne has been working on this beauty,
Alison Marie has an update on her blog
Here is a little peek at Cecys start on her blog
One of our fearless leaders, Tanaya started a crafts blog just because of little old doll quilts!! Go check it out and maybe she will post something for us. She even made the ultimate sacrifice and bought a new machine!
Anita has a lovely little peek over here at flickr.
Lucette is off and running!
Lurline has been busy. You need to check out newer posts for the gorgeous scarf that takes 3 weeks to make!
Check out the yummy fabrics Andrienne chose.
And my last update is for our rooster in the henhouse, John. He is using some of my favorite fabrics.
That’s about it for me. I hope you enjoyed our time together as much as I did. :0P

“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!

Hi, Doll Quilt Swappers!
Lisa K. here. The Swap Mamas are nearly done pairing you all up and will start sending your swap information tomorrow. So hold on j u s t a little longer, and soon you’ll have all the info you need to know about your partner.
To help make your wait more bearable, why don’t you take a look at the flickr pool (see the sidebar on the right) for ideas and inspiration from rounds 1-3? Our swappers have created quite an exciting and marvelous body of work so far, and will no doubt continue to do so!
If you don’t receive your partner information by Wednesday morning, we’ll have a discussion set up on the flickr group for you to let the Swap Mamas know and we’ll re-send it post haste! (Please make sure to check your spam or bulk mail folders before contacting us.)
Well Ii hope everyone that wanted in, got in. We are at 100 members and have officially closed off sign ups. Thanks to everyone for your interest. This is looking to be another great round. Give us a little time to match up all of you and then we can get started!!
We will be updating DQS3 soon too, and thanks to everyone that played in that round.
Hello! Sarah smallfox here. Just wondering if my swap bebehs could send me a quick email, letting me know if they’ve sent/received their doll quilts. I know a bunch of you did, but like an idiot, I deleted them while I was cleaning out my inbox. So, if you wouldn’t mind, I’d really appreciate it!
Also, if you posted pictures on your blog, it would be great if you cold send me a link(s) to that(those) post(s).
