    Yes, that's why I was wondering if this group (a very talented and creative group) who makes quilts that are for Display would have seen a few examples. The idea is not mine- I stumbled upon an old pattern at a thrift shop which predates the Internet and professionally printed commercial patterns. Remember all those cutsie geese with bonnets and hearts and homespun? But you never know- it may only take one person to restart a trend, right?

    JenniePenny, interchangeable, removable....That sounds so cool. Look forward to seeing it.

    I'm still in the designing stage of my doll quilt. Although I did pick up some special fabric from the quilt museum to use in it. It was designed and released in the 2011 Quilt show. Sure hope my partner likes it.

    How Exciting for me! I want you to know that I am working on your doll quilt Moonrise, in fact the top is nearly complete, so just need to find the perfect backing, quilt, label and and bind it and it will be ready to mail.

    Oh my I can't wait to see the interchangeable one. That sounds so intrigueing. I am going to Australia from March 15 to May 1. Then I stop over in New Zealand for a two day stay and then home to the USA. In Australia they have different candy that we do not have in the USA. So it is fun to try those. A lot of their candy is made by Cadbury which is very yummy. Also in Australia they have Chocolate tours. Many of them. The chocolate shops there sell chocolate that they make right their in their own stores and every store has their own secret way of doing it so taking a tour is an awesome experience. Being here in Las VEgas for the week and not having internet that is reliable at my Niece's home makes me feel like I am on the moon. Today is a good day for being on line. I started my March Doll quilt in Feb and have it all done except for the quilting. When I go back home I am hoping to finish it up and mail it off to my partner. I already have an idea for the April one. I can't wait to see what every one does. I love seeing the pictures.

    My little jewel

    Look at the spring JEWEL I received from my March swap partner(Krystyna). Isn't it beautiful. She also sent me a sachet that smells of lavender and all the scraps from my DQ, and a lovely card. Bill's doing much better, he felt well enough to go to the Dr. today. I love my quilt. 2nd picture is a sneak peak of your quilt.

    Ooooo! I can't wait! I'm so glad you liked it. Sort of rushing spring, but I think we need it!Goldsberry, I am giving up on finishing your quilt as completely hand sewn. Tomorrow it goes on the machine so it can still be fun -- but also DONE!

    Krystyna, paper piecing?? Wow! Fabulous little flowers, K! Good job.

    And the one that is coming your way is looking great as well! Another great month at the DQ swap.
    Reading, cooking, sewing in retirement! Heaven!

    ok, just dropped way too much money at a local store for fabric (surprise) for my gd olivia. she is moving from a 9month size to 12months and it is already summer in texas. i will be making short 'frocks', hats and bloomers. ooooo, i love baby clothes!! don't tell my dh. he thinks it's all for quilting. tee hee--he's beginning to understand THAT, at least! do you know it's cheaper to buy little kid clothes than to make them?! but nowhere near as much fun!! off to play with my new things--anyone want to come over and play? (bring in the last couple of bags on your way past the car, ok? thanks!)

    Thanks, everyone. I'm now officially hooked on paper piecing!

    Just so you can get your creative juices flowing for upcoming months -

    April - Colors of Spring - Use only two colors - but you can use as many hues of the same color as you want. No restrictions on thread color!

    May - Get Crazy! - This means you can make a crazy quilt or take a traditional pattern in a crazy direction. You decide.

    Related to the May theme - as some of you may or may not know, I earn my living by designing mantillas and chapel veils. Consequently at the end of the day my studio floor is covered in lace snippets. If anyone wants some PM me with LACE in the subject line. I can't promise what colors it will be -- generally whatever I'm working on at the moment.

    Oh, that DOES look like fun, but I'll have to pass for now. I'm swamped with getting my spring veils out the door. Maybe next month ... unless the gardening bug gets me!

    I just thought I'd give everyone a head start. I'm starting to get spring fever and can't wait to get away from my machines and into the garden and onto the beach! So take advantage of these last few cool and windy days to sew, sew, sew!

    Great quilts-from Krystyna and to Krystyna!! PPing is lots of fun! I'm thinking spring, too, and my March DQ reflects that. I'm ready to start quilting it, but not totally sure how to. I have gorgeous pink Hellebores blooming under a little tree outside my kitchen window.
