Doll Quilts

I am so very excited to be a part of Doll Quilt Swap 9. When I read about it on the Fat Quarterly blog, I didn't know that I would have to actually apply and be accepted. But as soon as I found out I crossed all of my fingers and feel so lucky to have been accepted. I also had no idea that the "secret partner" aspect of it would be quite so much fun. Every time I log on to flickr I can't wait to see what new quilts are in the pool and to try to guess which might be mine. Here are a few of my favorites so far.

This quilt is the one I'm working on for my swap partner. She has a lot of white space, aqua, and red in her inspiration mosaic so I'm hoping that this is her kind of thing. It will have a sailboat appliqued to the top portion (she suggested that she'd like a nautical theme) and then the top will be complete.

Further in the spirit of Doll-Quilt-Palooza, I couldn't be expected not to notice the quilts on antique expeditions. This is the only one I've bought so far. It isn't acutally quilted, seems to have polyester batting inside, and looks to me to be from the eighties, but I love the fabrics and colors.
