doll quilt in progress

This time around I'm taking part in the amazing Doll Quilt Swap, DQS9 to be precise. It is an extremely inspiring group of people, and it took me a while to decide on the design for mine. My partner's preferences, inspiration mosaic, and flickr favorites all came into play for my inspiration. In the end I decided on an abbreviated double wedding ring design, which will be raw edge appliqued onto a bright white background. I can't wait to get to that point, as I want to play with some hand stitched details, and I think hexagons for the quilt back, mmmm, decisions, decisions. Oh well, off to the LQS for supplies, happy wednesday! ♥

what I've been doing lately...

....lots and lots of quilting bee blocks! Being part of three different quilting bees sure keeps a person busy, not to mention the odd swap here and there, oh and the plans for a couple of new quilts for my kids! Ahhh, stop, I'm exhausting myself! No, but seriously, it's a wonderful challenge, and a way to keep myself sewing when it would be so easy to be lazy, well as much as summer with my kids at home can be, that is!
Hope you're having an awesome, but creative, summer also! ♥
