    As for green ideas - I was thinking along the Celtic lines....maybe a traditional motif on a green background - but maybe I will have to do an orange shamrock just so I can say I have seen one! LOL

    I don't think I'll be doing anything Irish this month. Thinking more of sneaky peeky green ... what does that mean? I do not know ...

    Counting down till I get my partner. I am super excited about this swap. I have done many swaps but this is my first doll quilt swap.something exciting about a small project with scaled down blocks or a pattern. I have several ideas but have not locked in yet.

    Just a little reminder to everyone ... please be sure that your quilts are at least 12" one way or the other. We love minis here, but not TOO mini!

    Oh don't worry. I am used to King sized so 12-24 is mini enough. LOL

    Tomorrow hubby and I will be out for most of the day meeting with a new private insurance adjuster, attorney and structural engineer to finally try getting somewhere with tearing down / rebuilding our house ... and ... don't know if I should be happy or sad. But at any rate, if anyone is signing up and doesn't hear from me ... patience please! I'll be back in the afternoon.

    My quilt will just be green, nothing to do with St Patricks Day or shamrocks or leprauchans. I want to try out a new block idea so will enlarge to suit a DQ. That's what I love about this swap, being able to 'audition' new blocks/techniques before tackling a large quilt.

    OK. I'm back. Sort of. Awful head cold today. I guess it's my turn. The house has settled more since we were last there, but this fellow is a lot more professional than the last one. Fingers crossed.

    Yes, and despite the fog in my head, I am feeling rather positive. My son came over this evening and helped move some stuff around and ... mostly importantly ... he put Darlene together for me! She's a tall one! And we enjoyed trying on her wigs.

    I've just pm'd Krystna to join in for March. It's been a few months since I did the doll quilt swap but as it's March, green and I am Irish that was the push I needed.

    So what do most people do once you know the theme for that month's doll quilt? Do you wait to be assigned your partner and decide what to make after having contact or do you pretty much decide what you are making based on the theme?

    She really is attractive. What do you use her for? Are you a garment maker?

    Anna, if it's a theme you just start stitching. If it's sender's choice, you can get in touch with your partner. Always fun to get to know a new quilting friend that way.

    No. She will not be named Sandy. I make veils and had a head statue, but it didn't work for the longer veils. I also make scarves and aprons and used an antique dress for for those. When we went to an estate sale last weekend that advertised mannequins, I thought ... hmmm. Let me look up store suppliers. And you know what? Even with shipping, mannequins are pretty cheap! A lot less expensive than a good dress form. Her wigs were only $10 each.
