Doll Quilt Swap

I hope I don't regret this decision, but I decided to join one more swap this summer (it's been a busy one for research and travel, limiting my sewing time). I was going to be patient and not sign up for the Doll Quilt Swap this round and wait for the next one when I'm not quite so busy, but all of you out there in blogland and flickrworld completely convinced me that it's going to be too much fun to pass up!

For this mini-quilt swap, the partners are secret so I thought I'd share I little of my likes here for my partner to "stubble" across :)

DQS7 Mosaic for Skovy

I'm really into color. I like colors that inspire and are either bright or in bold or cool combinations. I often try to do to much with color myself, but as you can see from my inspiration mosaic (and my flickr favs), I like a lot of different things (red/aqua, purples, blues, lights and darks, bright colors, lots of white, lots of brown...)

I lean towards the modern styles, so wonky can be good, but so can a traditional style done with modern fabrics/colors. I love when a person's personality shines through, so feel free to take risks and try something new.

I work most of my days in an office without windows and I'm hoping to add this little mini to the wall there to enjoy while I'm getting my work taken care of.

I'm so excited for this swap and can't wait to find out who I'm making a quilt for!


  1. this sounds really exciting!

  2. they haven't set up partners yet.. but we'd make a good team... i love your style!
