    Thanks so much! This was the first landscape type of thing I've attempted. Well, for the harsh winter they predicted us to have, it's been pretty mild except for the third week in January that we had a snow and ice storm that shut the Pacific Northwest down. As normal, we've had a lot of rain. I hope spring is around the corner. I does seem unusual for you not to have any snow. I'll wish some your way.

    Is there a theme for the March swap?
    Just love the celtic quilt, does it represent a certain place?
    Absolutely love the Washington landscape quilt. Wonderful job ladies.

    No, I have no idea. I think I still have mine. I wonder why it doesn't change colors when I've looked at a thread! Or it used to go to capitol letters when a new post came up on a thread I follow. Now I have to do more looking to figure out what's going on. I hope we can get it fixed soon.

    TammyB, Love your landscape quilt.

    I am waving wildly from the other side of the Cascades... Yup, you were right, that 3rd week in Janaury was a wild one over here too.

    QuiltnCowgirl THANKS you for posting a picture of "Little Okie" So glad you like it. I enjoy creating Mini Quilts.
    I enjoy meeting new quilters.
    I am sorry I have not posted your "The Croplands of California"
    I do really like it. A larger quilt like it would be nice.
    My Granddaughter had a Horse Accident last Sat. It was touch and go there for a while but she got to come home from the hospital Thursday and gets to go to school Monday. Thank you God. I have been keeping my other 2 1/2 yr old Granddaughter day and night. So this week has been something else. Looking forward to meeting more Quilter on QB Doll Swap.

She also sent lots of goodies from OSU & OU, as well as including them on the quilt. Thank you so much uniquedesigner! I will treasure your doll quilt and look forward to keeping in touch with you!

    I've been looking at your all's doll quilts all day and I'm in awe...they are so so beautiful!! I want to sign up for the swap in April bc I have too much going on in March. I've made just crazy and rag doll and mini quilts but nothing following a pattern yet. I've been sewing misc projects for years but I'm new to quilting. I've made maybe 4 or 5 little quilts but I haven't done any binding. I either do rag quilts or the kind where you sew them to backing inside out and flip them like a pillow. So anyway, as I venture into deciding a good easy starter pattern for my first doll quilt done with a pattern, I welcome any suggestions as to a pattern that's beginner friendly. Thanks.

    CKK, you might also want to join the Group. It's not the same as the thread for the month, but there are places to upload photos and also to discuss ideas for upcoming swaps and to share links. Here's the spot to join:

    Just thought I'd post a pic of the Georgia doll quilt I sent to my partner 1234Irene. I haven't heard from her and am hoping that she liked it.

    Joann, it is simply beautiful! I hope she is OK. She might be one of those people who disappeared when the board changed format. Did you receive one in return?

    JoAnn, I'm so sorry you haven't heard back. This is a beautiful quilt. I love your white flowers. They look almost look like the real blossom on a tree. And your quilting is beautiful. And your color story enhances the whole look.

    I hope your partner received it. I had one that went missing in January in a different doll swap. I made a replacement as soon as I found out about it. Thank goodness, She did receive the second one.
