    I don't think buslady is worried about it, I know she wasn't expecting one with all you went thru...and i promise I won't put your name in RED for not sending your partner a DQ! lol

    You are welcome. And that was salvaged from my pre-Sandy studio. Today I am going to make curtains. Thanks to the gifts of some Joann gift cards and a 15% off everything coupon, we went last night and I found some delicious fabric in the 50% off Red Dot section! Since we are going to be in this apartment for at least a year, we might as well make it feel homey as best we can.

    And poor Buslady is getting a DQ, like it or not.

    Thanks Lisa, they change my meds again to Gabapentin boy the names on these meds. I also take Cyclobenzaprine, take them both together and I get sleepy and end up sleepy the day away, that's why I'm up all night long...LOL

    December 2012 DQ WIP

    This is my first doll quilt swap - I had a great partner this month - I finally finished her quilt and got it in the mail after a bizzare set of circumstances or maybe misfortunes would be a better word. Any who Lyn I hope you like it - this is a sneak peek of my work in progress.

    tesspug, that sure is an adorable doll quilt. I love the quilt block you choose. And, it is no secret....I LOVE polka dots.

    Nise, I love love love the wintery trees you designed. They are just darling! I love the border fabric. It's so cute.

    dabbler, love your sneak peak. Your points are just wonderful. Can't wait to see what you've come up with.

    That's the same fabric I used on the one I made! I love it!! In fact our quilts are sort of similar. Guess we both got the same inspiration from the tree fabric (and we both goto JoAnn's)!! Great job on yours -- love the addition of the snowflakes.

    That might be a fun theme some month -- pick a fabric we can all get (like a solid color or common print) and see what everyone does with it.

    Lisa, nice to see your real face

    I like the idea of all using the same fabric too, but we have to be careful as some of our members may not have "it" or the ability to obtain "it" if we are too specific. Just a thought.

    I'm with you, Paula. The general swap rules are that it has to be open to everyone -- and not everyone can afford a particular fabric. I know that some are on very limited budgets, so I'll have to put on my thinking cap for this one. My guild does a challenge every year - you need to make a mini quilt using a particular fabric. Apparently everyone gets the fabric, but hardly anyone actually makes the quilts! If you give me a couple of months, I think I can come up with a solution ...

    Krystyna - one solution might be to pick A color - say Green. The challenge would be to use A fabric with Green as the focal point of your DQ or the major fabric in your DQ. That way we are all the same (green) - yet still individual.

    That's a neat idea about using the same or "like" fabric. It's always interesting to see everyone's own personal view.

    Well, my doll quilt decided to take the scenic extremely cold route by going west before it goes southeast. Don't ask me why it's in Tulsa, OK. It's supposed to go to FLORIDA!! Partner, I am keeping an eye on it. And should our trusty postal workers(and I use that term loosly..) loose it while it's going the wrong way, I can whip up another one fairly quick. So be patient. I am tracking your cheer up heal quickly quilt! I am sooo sorry for the wait.

    That's the way I took it.... using a LIKE color as a focal point... not really the same "brand" fabric. If we went with say a "green" focal theme, some may use lime green, some grass green, some a pastel green but all quilts would still be using a "GREEN" or whatever color is chosen, as the main attraction in their quilt.

    Got my DQ from GIQuilt yesterday. I love it. When hers arrives she will see just how much. It is funny how closely our fabric choices match!! Thank you for the wonderful DQ. And the soft socks that were folded up inside the package. She evenincluded a dowel for the hanging!! Here are some pics. ENJOY!!!!
    She calls it "Starry Night", so appropriate!! Again, thank you, I love it.

    Yeah -- that's what I meant. And, of course, theme optional.

    dabbler312 has received my dolls quilt and I know she has been poorly of late and hasn't been able to post a pic so I will help her out. It was fun to make a quilt for dabbler and here is her first dolls quilt in this swap.
