    Tax Time Doll Swap Quilt

    On another forum I am on, I participate in the doll quilt swaps. This round, the theme was, Tax Time, rules were, red white blue - 3" or smaller blocks, sampler style. Here is what I came up with. It will be heading out to Iowa this week. I really like how it turned out and think I am going to put it on my list to make myself one.

    I am not a very good paper piecer - one I don't like wasting the fabric - two some times I can't wrap my head around doing it all backwards but I powered through and got it done. I lost a few points but overall, I think it turned out pretty good.

    Mini stippling is my favorite.

    Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.
    Happy Quilting

    I can tell why mini stippling is your favorite. You are so good at it. This is a wonderful quilt, well done.

    It's terrific, and I like your choices for the sampler- they are different, but coherent. A really superb effort- thanks for sharing!
