My little quilt arrived from Margy in Belgium -- it took a month and was totally worth waiting for! She calls it Shopping Birdie (the back is a turquoise print with ladies and their shopping bags "drawn" in black) and I LOVE it! Hand- and machine-applique, hand quilted ~ and due a little freshening steam after its long journey. How could she know I like birds? Maybe she read the "About Me" page. Merci, Margy!
I have three other little quilts in the works now, and more in my head. One is for the girls, one is to be a surprise gift and one is the August Doll Quilt Challenge. that last is going to end up too large to qualify, but I am loving it the best of the three. In my head and on some sketch pages I am beginning to think about the LQS challenge quilt. For ten bucks I got five fat quarters that have to appear on the front of this small quilt with finished dimensions between 12" & 24". Yesterday I stopped in for some template plastic and a half a yard more of one of the additional fabrics I'd already selected.
Waiting in the wings: a full-size Amy's Lotus Brick Path Quilt, her free pattern that I've already modified a bit in order to use every bit of fabric. I did the cutting ages ago, it seems, before I was led down the doll quilt path!
