Another Doll Quilt

I'm having a lot of fun with the Doll Quilt Swap on the Quilting Bee Forum!  Our theme this month, set by capable host Debbie, was applique, so I made a winter mitten quilt with a snowflake background.  It flew to New York, and its recipient seems to like it a lot.  I wonder what Debbie will suggest for next month's theme.

My quilt this month was from host Debbie in Idaho.  She used the darling paper doll prints, including a large doll on the front of the quilt.  I'm afraid to show it to my granddaughters, because they'll want to take it home.

Doll Quilts

As a member of the Quilting Bee Forum on Delphi Forums, I have the opportunity to participate in some really interesting swaps and group projects.  One of our swap hostesses, Debbie, has sponsored five swaps of doll quilts, which range in size from 16 to 20 inches.  I have participated in the last two, and these are my contributions to the wholecloth and winter blues swaps.  They went to quilters in Idaho and New York.  I received darling quilts from North Carolina and California.

We just started the sixth swap, an applique swap.  I have already gotten a good start on my quilt, which will feature bright colors.
