March Doll Quilt Swap

This is the doll quilt that I made for my partner, Janet for the March Doll Quilt swap. It is on it's way to Florida. It is 18 x 24 inches. The theme for March was Red and White.

Janet almost didn't get the quilt....Rich loved it and wanted to keep it. I promised him that I had fabric left and would make another one for him to keep!

I had so much fun making the quilt that I signed up for the April swap. There is no theme or certain color this month. It has to be at least 12 x 12 inches and no bigger than 24 x 24 inches.

I've been looking at my quilt books and quilt magazines for ideas. I won't know until after the first of the month who my partner will be and his or her likes. Yes, we have men in our quilting forum....and they make beautiful quilts.

Happy Birthday, Bobbie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Birthday to my oldest little sister! I know I tease you a lot about wanting to trade you in for a seal when you were a baby......Awe shucks.....I think I got the better deal. I got a wonderful sister and a best friend! Hope you have a wonderful birthday, Sis!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.S. When Bobbie was born in Crescent City, California I had to wait in the waiting room because I wasn't old enough to go in and see Mom and Bobbie. The hospital sits on the beach and you could see seals and sea lions frolicking in the surf. After being an only child for 11 1/2 years I was used to having a crying baby in the house. So I asked Dad if we could take her back and get one of the seals instead....they weren't noisy like Bobbie. LOL!!!! By the way, Dad told me that they didn't take trade-ins for the seals so we had to keep Bobbie!
