You may have heard the rumors, but yes ... I am here to tell you that they are all true: signups for Doll Quilt Swap 7 have opened up.
So much for my mini quilt swap hiatus.
Anyhoo, the first 200 people to sign up are guaranteed spots ... and they are filling up fast. So what are you waiting for? Go! Go!
But be sure to come back, because I thought this was a great time to post the recap of DQS6 that I've been meaning to get to for a few months now.
As you may remember, I was an admin (aka "swap papa") for the Doll Quilt Swap for the first time in round 6. And let me tell you, I think I was given the best bunch of quilters in the whole swap (well, except for Joy, who sent me the best dang quilt of the whole swap (IMHO)!!)
I wanted to honor their talent and hard work by posting this gallery of their quilts. So sit back, relax, and enjoy!
We'll start with Bronwyn, who sent this fantastic quilt to fellow Aussie Helen:
Love that Tula Pink fabric!
Helen made one of her signature minis for lucky Kerri:
In turn, Kerri sent this little cutie (one of my faves!) to Erin in Utah:
And Erin made this for Tina ... although it looks like Tina's daughters have claimed ownership:
What a creative idea! Those little pennants are so original.
In turn, Tina made this sweet little quilt for Jennifer in Virginia ... or maybe for her daughter?:
I paired Jennifer up with Darci in California ... I had a feeling it would be a good match. Here's what Darci received:
Oh, hey Darci! Cute pic.
Darci, in turn, made this mini for Stefanie:
And Stef made this pretty quilt for Sarah:
Here's what Sarah sent to Indiana to live with Solidia:
And here's Californian Rhonda showing off her little beauty, handmade by Solidia:
I think Karen from Washington was (understandably!) very happy with what Rhonda made especially for her:
What better for a cat lover than this little quilt made by Karen for Molly in Oregon:
And this retro mini traveled from Molly's place in Oregon all the way to Virginia to live with Liz:
Here's what Liz sent to Anastasia:
Check out what Anastasia sent "down under" to Hayley in Australia:
And finally, another Aussie-to-Aussie package from Hayley to Bronwyn:
... which closes out my little circle.
