I joined the DQS7 on Flickr. This was my first time and I was so thrilled that they let me join in on the fun. The partner that I got said, "I love modern, improv quilts with lots of bright colors and solids." Can I just say, "Eeeeek"! Well, I DID just say Eeeek! I can't say that is in the realm of what I usually do.
When I was still trying to figure out what I was going to do, I ran across this post by Cherry House Quilts. I was inspired to try to make those flowers and use those in my quilt.
I can't say they were easy! I know they should be, but I had a tough time getting them to look the way I wanted them to look. And I'm not really sure they come across as flowers, either. Which is okay.
I have to say, I can totally understand why people make two doll quilts - one to send and one to keep. You can become quite attached to these little babies.
Especially after we spent a few hours bonding while I ripped out about
I really enjoyed the different types of quilting. I've never done the water effect in the blue, or the pebble quilting, but they were really easy to fall into a quilting groove with. The pebble quilting was inspired by crazy mom quilts, specifically, these pillows.
Okay,two more pictures. The back.
And ready to be sent.
I certainly hope that my partner likes it. I already told her that if she hates it, she can return it - no questions asked! Heck, I'll even pay for return shipping.
Now, I can hardly wait to see what quilt I get to replace it!
