I am still in my sewing funk. This is the longest I have gone....I briefly cranked out an angel quilt for dqs7,but that didn't count. The last round of my beloved doll quilt swap has left me with such a bad taste in my mouth I fear I might be done for good. Sigh.

2.Between now and July 24th,make a scrappy little doll quilt that adheres to these guidelines:
- Quilt measures no more than 20" on any side

- Must be made entirely from your scrapbag
3.You may post pictures of fabrics and sneak peeks only...no finished shots until show day,which is Saturday,July 25th. On this day,post your finished entry on your blog. Maybe someone smarter than me can make a button for us to add on our blogs.....anyway,I will host a giveaway. Each participant is entered,as well as anyone who leaves a comment about my finished entry on show day. If you put a link to this site,you'll get an extra entry. Tell all your friends! I encourage you to do a give away as well,but its not necessary to play.

Then there is my tendency to over-involve myself in swapland. :) BUT....I love it. As a swap parent for DQS6,I have 2 outstanding quilts I am keeping my fingers crossed make it to their new homes soon. I have a couple angel quilts lined up just in case. There sure were so gorgeous quilts this round,and the talent that exists in this group never ceases to amaze and motivate me.
A few short weeks left of school,then i will be able to quilt a lot more! I am hoping to host a fun event this summer online,so stay tuned!
Oh yeah....a big thanks to Swapdex for interviewing me...what an honor!

I love civil war repros and 30s repros. I love "cottage style" romantic fabrics. I am not real crazy about batiks and brights....although I do like Amy Butler and Kaffee K's. I mostly prefer traditional quilt styles and I love scrappy quilts. BUT....those are the kinds I make. So for any one who is making a quilt for me-make what you love and I know I will love it too!
I want to learn to paperpiece an applique. Maybe someday.
