Catchin' Up!

That's the goal of the next week or so...the end of the school year and early summer are always the busiest time of the year at my house. Next year will be even worse with a high school graduation to add into the mix. (Not even thinking about that one yet...) Anyway, I hope to do some catching up on things I enjoy, but have to set aside when family activities call.

So here is a much overdue blog post.

My last post was about DQS10. As usual, I stalked my partner and came up with a multitude of quilt ideas. I only wish I had time to make all of them into real quilts. After much deliberation, here is the quilt I made:

I had been wanting to make a Wedding Ring quilt for a very long time, but wanted to try to make it more modern looking. I decided on this setting which looks like a chain. I was very happy with how it turned out. I think my partner liked it, too. I have some other ideas I'd like to try with variations on the wedding ring pattern. Maybe someday...

And here is the fabulous little quiltlet I received:

I just love the colors and the much fun to look at. It is currently hanging on the wall in my sewing room where I can see it when I sew. It was made by Tina (aka needles-n-notions). And she kindly sent some very fun little extras, too!

I just love my growing collection of doll quilts! I've had so much fun swapping with other quilters around the world!!
