I've been oogling all the wonderful quilts that people have been receiving over the last few weeks for the Doll Quilt Swap. There have been so many wonderful projects this round. I want to congratulate everyone for the awesome effort they put forth and share my gratitude to them for posting photos of their finished quilts. Thanks for all the inspiration folks! My "oohh I have to make that" list is a mile long.
The FedEx lady left me an extra special package on Thursday from Megan of Will Work For Fabric. Inside was my DQS7 Quilt, a bundle of fatties, a cow measuring tape (my 4 year old son has already claimed this as HIS) and a note. I had no idea what the package was when I picked it up in my entry because I was totally expecting the quilt to be mailed via USPS. I was doing the happy dance as soon as I opened it. What a wonderful quilt. I am so pleased with it and tickled that Megan was my secret partner. I've seen her blog before and spent hours going through her posts. She's a pattern designer, quilting teacher and lecturer, and creates the most amazing patchwork. Her lollipop quilt is one of my favorites. There probably isn't a magazine on the shelf without one of her patterns in it. Check out her amazing applique.
Loving the freehand machine quilting and accent fabric along the binding. The shades of blue and white she used makes this a perfect winter accent.
Just awesome all around. THANK YOU, THANK YOU Megan!!
I promise to elaborate more about my trip to the Binghamton quilting shop tomorrow. Till then...
