Doll Quilt Swap 7

I decided to participate in Doll Quilt Swap 7. I've been in DQS 4, 5 & 6. It's a secret swap. I'll be making a small quilt for somebody, and somebody else will be making a quilt for me. The partner matching emails went out last night and I have received my partner.

The goal is to make as perfect a quilt for your partner as you can, and to that end you have to give your partner information about yourself. So here's a little bit about me.

I love bright, saturated color. This is my computer desk.I have Fiestaware dishes. More color on my dry sink.And my bathroom is painted school-bus yellow.
What I would really like from my swap partner in DQS7 is a quilt for this empty wall in my bathroom.Partner, make me a quilt that will look good on this wall. Do not worry about "matching" the other items in the room. The space can only take a quilt 24" wide, but that's the outside dimension of the swap quilt, so no problem there. The only other things you should be concerned about is any embellishments must be able to withstand moisture, and I am not a fan of brown.

I am, however, a huge fan of black and white, and I love checkerboards.
Can you tell?

Lynne-My main computer has crashed with virus so I am very "aggrevated to the the lease and out of sorts". I have this lap top but really have never used it much...I don't even know how to get to my email from here so please bear with me, which is why I'm posting here to let you that yes, I did receive my doll quilt 7 swap information for my secret pal. I'm working on getting more info for about me for the person who has me, have been thinking about it and now after seeing your post, maybe I can put a post on my blog in the next few days to help her better. Thank you. Contact me with via blog right now, my email is down, sorry for inconvenience, will let you know when it is back up.
