I'm here...

I am here, but I about to become more quiet - weekly instead of daily posts, kind of quiet - unless something "big" happens... Too much going on & something had to give...

In the mean time, my GF showed me how she finishes a binding, not how I wanted to do it, but it works...

So I finished my Doll Quilt II swap quilt & mailed it. (I'll blog it when it gets to its destination.)
& I finished one for me:
doll quilt

One more to bind for a one to one swap...

I also mailed a gift quilt, that I will also wait to blog until it is received.

But I do have some neat eye candy, from my fellow Sew-n-tell members (that is what we call our mini-group.)

If you have anything that you want me to check out, or that you want to tell me, send me an e-mail...

Hi Amy! It is a voice from your past! I don't comment much anymore, but am trying to change that. I love your doll quilt you kept for yourself...great fabrics!

I am in the swap as well, and as my partner likes CW repros, you'll never guess what I will be doing for her quilt, lol.. Yup... Dear Jane blocks...

Hope you are well and married life is treating you well!

hi Amy-I have been dreaming of a taupe storm at sea. Love your doll quilt!! I want -need one! I am doing a one on ones swap with a friend and I am going to use my curve master and try to do a really small drunkards path. I have printed the patterns but not the fabric. Any ideas? Maybe Kaffe Fasset>>>>>hmmmm so many fabrics so little time! My travel blocks are also pings..

Hi, Amy! Very nice "keeper" quilt! What width did you use for the binding?

I thought the show-and-tell quilts were very pretty, too.

Fiona said...

Now that's my kind of doll quilt! Bright and cheerful. I like the basket of flowers quilt too - I have some of that basket weave fabric ...maybe one of these days...

Although horses aren't my thing - I really like that wedding ring with the fussy cut picture fabric in the centres - I'd never have thought of doing that - that's the great thing about blogging you get so much inspiration from other people

Nice doll quilt! I picked up a half-dozen doll beds at one point and made little quilts for them...it is a great "I have a finish" feeling!

Hope the stuffed meatballs come out OK. Like the idea of the soaked mint! Silly me had just used it to make tea!

Holly said...

Hey Amy, I'm playing catch-up. I love your bike! And the doll quilt you made for yourself is absolutely darling. It reads "happy" all over it.

Deb H said...

Can't say as I blame you Amy. It does take a lot of time this blogging thing.

Cute little quilts!

Amy, I hope that all of the things that are keeping you busy are all good things. Take care while you're "gone."
The doll quilt turned out really pretty - great job on the binding!

Libby said...

Love that keeper quilt - I like to have a keeper, too *s* Hope your days settle down and you are back with us soon.

Amy said...

Can't wait to see your quilt for the swap...and it's always good to have one for yourself :)

Morah said...

I too have cut down on comments and computer time. It's amazing what can be accomplished in a day...away from the computer!

atet said...

Oooh, what a lovely little doll quilt! I know what you mean about something having to give -- been there. Hope what is keeping you busy is fun. No matter how often you post, I will still be coming back to see what is "new".

Your work is beautiful. I found you through Michael (an old childhood friend.I live in Israel and finally mustered up the courage to send a message)

I don't know much about quilts, but I'll be popping in again soon. Thanks for sharing.

Marisa said...

Ok, WOW, that doll quilt is nuts. All that color! So beautiful! I hope I'm your partner...if not whoever she is ...one luck girl! Nice job. Can't wait to see the real one.

I absolutely LOVE that flower basket!
