No Doll Quilt Yet

Boo-hoo, I still haven't received my doll quilt from my partner.  I thought I'd be posting a pic before now, but not yet.  (I sure hope it's good!  I'm going nuts with anticipation!  I was thinking.....wouldn't it be funny if my partner was a flaker and I'd have to send an angel quilt to myself?  LOL  That would "fix" me, huh?)  Oh well!

In the meantime, I'll give you peek of what I've been doing.  I joined another swap called the 6"-12" mini swap and this month the theme is "spring fling".  I was dumbfounded on what to do until I saw a napkin at the grocery store and came home and drew my rendition of it.  I must admit that at first I thought it was spectacular and due to that I made 6 of them.......yes, 6.  Why?  Who knows?  I must have thought I would be blessing the neighborhood with my creative wonder.....???  Or, maybe I just needed to stay busy.  In any event, I'm not loving them anymore and have created a different one.  That one though is still a secret until my partner receives it.  (I sent it out today, so it shouldn't be long.  In the meantime, here is the first which I have already given to several of my friends.  Of course, I have to show the work in progress first, you know:


And the result. It's about 7 inches square. (And I only have 2 left, thank heaven.)

The end result

It's adorable!! I love your work in progress shots.
A long time ago I used a pattern from a Family Circle magazine, or was it Women's day? Either way it was the cutest bunny with an Easter bonnet on. I sewed 2 of them for a friend. Loved that bunny. I still have the pieces that I used for templates! Maybe I should make one.
Or maybe not. My hands are full right now with the bigger quilt projects I'm doing.

CUTE!!! I can't believe how much sewing you get done!! I hope your DQ arrives soon. In the photo group it looks like several people are still putting the finishing touches on theirs before mailing, so fingers crossed it will be en route soon. The waiting is so hard!!!
