A long overdue post...

Hmm...seems I only post when I finish a quilt. I'll have to try to be better about that.

But guess what! I finished another little quilt. This one was for the 6th Doll Quilt Swap. I chose Amy Butler fabrics and wanted something with a modern feel. And it had to have squares with white sashing. Here are some photos of my progress:

I put these together after this wild idea popped into my head. I really like it, but I'm not sure my partner would have. It is really contemporary looking and like nothing I've ever made before. Not sure where it came from... Anyway, here it is:

So, after much debate, I decided to go with a more traditional setting.

And I like the back, too.

So, for now, the first quilt is awaiting some sort of finish, handquilting maybe, while the second quilt is on it's way west. Hope it gets there safefly!
