    Loving the Little quilts this month. Got a new table and need a topper, I'll have to look into one of Bratts runner swaps. LOL I made one, but would like another, and some for the holidays...... Oh my, another obsessions!

    Well that's perfect timing, BertieD! I am just finishing my top, hoping to add the boarders tomorrow and then finish up on Saturday! I did end up with a couple of other ideas but I couldn't pull them off - maybe next year.

    Hi Brat...the candle fabric with gold accents is being carried by Joann's (no candle fabric at all at my best LQS that carries over 12,000 bolts of fabric and probably 500 of holiday fabric...go figure!). It's CM6163 Mosaic Candles. Wanna a free leftover piece? PM me your address!

    I will be mailing Quiltymom's DQ out on Monday. Hope to have it out this week, but I didn't get it done. All I have to do is put the label on and send it off. The toughest part of all this for me is actually getting the quilt in the mail!

    Ok, for the Nov. Dec. swap, I find myself hesitating....why??....I think because there is no theme. Now I have to decide what to do?? Hehe, I like some parameters I guess. If I sign up, whom ever is my partner, do you promise to tell me what you want?

    All you gals are a hoot. I enjoy reading the conversations and seeing all the pretty doll quilts. This is a great group.

    sapphire rae I will be your partner and you will get clear defined directions lol.. and also Jaba would like someone who wants Christmas but will gladly share with you what she wants.. she is also very good at directions (lol um yes MA'AM!) as will all of us. I think that part is easy..

    Oh Chasezzz I would love scraps of that fabric!! I am about 3 hours drive from the next Jo Anns. not exactly close but I love that one so much. Pay you postage

    Omacookie, silent one, I am mailing your dq on Monday. This is killing me having it sitting here growing old all by itself on the kitchen counter. I put it in an envelope last night and its going to have to fly home to you. I hope you will enjoy it I had a lot of fun making it with you in mind.

    from tesspug

    My doll quilt came yesterday from tesspug along with a few extras.

    It's beautiful with all the different Christmas fabrics and the glowing candles. I'm using it as a wall hanging and have the perfect spot to put it at Christmas time.

    She sent a jelly roll pattern and a pot holder she crocheted that is too pretty to use, too. Also, her card had a lake on it, Mono Lake, which is a place in California I would love to see.

    Karen, I love my little dq, and thanks for being my partner.

    Wow Kif, you did burn the midnight oil to get things finished for the baby shower - so glad it went well and you can now have a little rest before new bub arrives.

    Went to send out emc118's DQ to her today and we hadn't exchanged address details LOL so it will go out as soon as I get those.

    Spent today finishing quilting two lap size quilts and basted another 3 little ones ready for quilting...

    AND after having some Maxine fabric for about 2 years, today I finally found a pattern that I think will suit the fabric just right.

    Skaduzy, so glad you like the candles. I used to pattern to determine the size of the candles. It was very fun being your partner.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    Wasn't this a fun theme afterall? I think all those worried about signing for it and how hard it was going to be.. sigh.. now you look at the creativity put into these the beautiful colors that were used and well I think this was a great idea Quiltinkrazy. I look forward to more push your thinking doll quilts in the future. Everyone here is a genious when it comes to taking an idea and just running with it. I can't wait for more and MORE!!

    ps Kiffie I absolutely love metalics in fabrics too.. sometimes I go on ebay and search for just those in a certain holiday and end up wanting this one and that one and oh maybe some of this also.. its dangerous but fun to see just the huge variety out there. I wonder do they wash better thn they did say 15 yrs ago? I found those were lovely but after a wash or two the metallic lifted off. anyone know if they stay metallic now after a wash?
