I think I told you how much fun I had creating little quilts recently for the "Doll Quilt Swap" (DQS #7), right? Well, when I thought about how much work was involved to organize 190 plus swap participants, my mind frazzled!!! Who in the world would want to take on a job like that?? Imagine the pitfalls of 200 plus e-mails hitting your system all at once. E-gads! Not only that, but the current swap MAMA has done it more than once!! Eikes...talk about torture!
Right then, I knew I had to do something to at least show my appreciation...but what??? (((Can you see the idea forming here???))) It had to have a supreme being and little beings too.....it had to be whimsical and light, because that is how she is.......so out came the paper and pencil and this is what I drew:
Next, I went to my copy shop and had 4 complete copies made of the whole thing. After that, I got out my fabrics and "Steam a Seam" and went to work cutting and ironing.
It took all day just to piece....so the next day, it was the quilting:
Ooops, not done yet!!! Binding and dowel cutting, and attaching the little "O" was next. I sure was hoping she'd hang it. Then...naturally, I had to take pics. Outside, inside...which were best? My motto is record it all, you can always delete the crummy ones. LOL
Finally, may I present, "CHICKENFOOT ET AL" with gratitude and appreciation:
Cool huh? I love it and hope that she does too....BUT, for someone who prides herself on neat quilt backs (me), please don't look at this one. Eikes!!!
