Sneak Peeks 1 & 2

During DQS7 (my first doll swap), I made a special quilt for "Chickenfoot", the head Mama of the group.  I'm sure you've seen it.  (If not, it's in my photostream in the mini section.)  Well, anyway, I thought it would be fun to continue the process like in some sort of sequel.  At first I was going to have her playing in the snow with the 8 swap mamas, but in the process of the swap, I got a better idea which you'll see next week some time.  I'm not spoiling the surprise just in case she reads my blog!!  I did mail the quilt today so I'm sure she'll get it soon.

In the meantime, I'm going to reveal one sneak peek a day.  So here are the first two:

Do you remember these knees?

Sneak peek #2

This was so fun to make, but really involved. Believe it or not, I had to free motion my pieces on because I couldn't manage the applique foot with the tiny pieces. I hope I remember this for DQS9.

Your little quilts are so darling! I'm trying to figure this one out! I hope someday I'm the lucky recipient of one of your beautiful creations

Well your free motion applique is certainly looking fabulous!! Were you a cartoonist before quilting? Your drawings are really, really excellent!! She's going to flip out when she gets this!

If I had known how you were going to dive into this hobby, I would have bought stock in the fusible web market! LOL
This is just darling, Carol. The foot stuck in the icing is my very most favorite part of it. LOL
