Howdy pardner

A message to my partner in round 10 of the Doll Quilt Swap:
I am guessing if you are my partner in the DQS, you might have made it as far as my blog and might be reading this post so I thought I'd stop you right now and tell you that I've put my inspiration mosaic up to inspire you but please don't feel restricted by that at all.  Feel free to take inspiration from anywhere in my photostream, faves, galleries or blog and to run with it and make whatever you will love making.  Last time Penny sewtakeahike made a quilt for me and her inspiration was that she thought I had a good sense of humour so she made a quilt which would make me laugh.  I'm not saying you need to make a quilt that make me laugh - just that you needn't feel limited by my mosaic.

Because I always like to have a picture in a blogpost, here is the blog header from the Doll Quilt Swap blog made up of Amy Badskirt's Blythe doll, Smith, and the quilt blocks she's been working on:
So please enjoy the swap and enjoy what you make because that way I know I will love it.  And please don't go out shopping for any new fabrics - make it from your stash - however big or small your stash is.  The one thing you might want to know is that I will hang it up somewhere in my house but every room in my house is decorated in a different colour scheme so that needn't limit you at all in colour, shape, size  or style.

  3. I've spent the morning stalking my partner. In any other walk of life I'd get arrested for being *that* nosy! I've made a sketch and got a few ideas in the pipeline but think any pics I post will be of the slow tease variety...

  4. Really not mad on your inspiration, maybe have a rethink.

    Nancy Johnson, how incredibly disrespectful to Lily. I happen to agree with you but I would never let on, it just wouldn't be polite or proper. Next time keep your opinions to yourself.

  8. Patricia, I have the right to express my opinion. End of.

  9. I wish my partner had been as easy to please as you! She's more intimidating than accommodating! LOL!

  10. Hi, I came across your blog when trying to get some ideas on how to make a union jack block. I am not sure if you make your block like you do an asterick block, but wanted to see if you did, I am having a little bit of difficulty working out what sizes to cut, maths is not my strong point!!! You had a tutorial but it doesn't seem to be available anymore, is there any chance you can post it on your blog again? I am from England, now living in the US and just recently got into quilting and would love to make my son a union jack quilt. Sam
