Doll Quilt Swap 9

has begun!  There’s been a lot of chatter going on at the flickr group as sign-ups, acceptance, and matching up has been going on.  The anticipation has been building, and today we found out who our secret partners are.  Now the stalking, scheming, plotting and designing begins!

There are 200 of us participating so you can imagine the logistics of getting all those quilters organized and matched up.  The swap mamas are doing a fabulous job!

I’m excited about my secret partner!  I’ve been checking out everything I can about him/her.  He/She’s given me some good stuff to go on, so hopefully I can make something that he/she’ll love!

This is the 6th round that I’ve been able to participate in and it’s always so much fun!

Here are the quilts I’ve made for my partners in previous rounds: 

1. DQS4; 2 DQS5; 3 DQS6; 4 DQS7; 5 DQS7 (angel quilt); 6 DQS8

And here are the quilts I’ve received:

1. DQS4; 2. DQS5; 3. DQS6; 4. DQS6 (angel quilt); 5. DQS7; 6. DQS8

The deadline isn’t until September, so we have all summer to decide on and to create the perfect little quilt.  And it will be so fun to check out all the sneak peeks that are posted to the Doll Quilt Swap flickr pool.  That’s one of my favorite parts! There are some really talented artists involved so it’s so fun to see all the wonderful creations.

This swap, like so many others, has a button that participants can put on their blog.  Each round there has been a new button, and this time there was a contest.  Anyone who wanted to design a button could submit it to be voted on.  That sounded like fun, so I submitted a button and it ended up being the winner!

So I’m looking forward to a fun round.  I’ll keep you posted on my progress!

Hi Tina! I loved your idea of posting pictures from previous doll quilt swaps--I hope you don't mind my copying it;)
DQS always brings back fond memories of the first round I participated and received your gorgeous beach quilt!
Hope you're doing well:)
