    It is for July, I am just a little late, I fell down a flight of stairs and damaged both of my wrists. So my wonderful quilting buddies helped me out and finished the hand stitching so I could get it in the mail. For August I am going to finish a UFP that I started a while back, I am going to take a few blocks and tweak them into a perfect Doll quilt, with the help of my friends.

    Did you go to the Long Beach Quilt show? It was a blast, but I guess I kinda forgot about the crowds, I had to sit out a little as my injuries got the better of me, but I did see some really beautiful quilts in the show.
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Come on in Psychomom! I think its still open for more. Marybeth I just checked out your avatar. When did you come take a pic of MY cat? Henry looks just like that and that is exactly how he likes to lay on my couch. He is a bit of a dork however and often rolls off furniture, cupboards.. not the most gifted of cats when it comes to balance. King Henry however can do no wrong. Just look at his face.. and ask him but please not when he is ten feet up admiring you from my kitchen. He falls, and never lands on his feet. I have learned not to notice him up there it scares me to death this klutzy cat of mine.

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    I thought it might be helpful to some of us to share this site with some interesting information about Amish Quilt Patterns and the colors most commonly used:
    http://crafts.lovetoknow.com/wiki/Am...lting_Patterns

    Let me know what you think!
    And I guess we can do Mennonite quilts too.

    I don't know about any of you, but I've really been enjoying "American Colony" about the Hutterites.
    One thing that baffles me, however, is that they don't seem to quilt!

    Hi Judith, Nice to have you as a partner. Working on your Amish quilt, but it won't be hand quilted. I do only machine quilting. Looking forward to working with you. Mary

    Yay! So glad I could be in the swap this month after all - Thank you Krystyna! I have your package ready to go with this month's Amish DQ and the QAYG block for your soldier friend. I'm including an American Quilter magazine with a really interesting article about "Pot Holder Quilts" made for Civil War soldiers. It's a lot like what you are doing for your friend. They also had an article about Broderie Perse quilting, something I had never hear of until KrisB talked about it on this swap.

    You know how you wash big quilts before gifting, so they will look cuddlier? This is not such a good idea with doll quilts. Of course I had to find out the hard way on your quilt. It does look cuddly, but also a bit wonkier. I still like it though and hope you do too!
