Doll Quilt Swap Quilts - Sent

These are the quilts I made for the Doll Swaps. The size is supposed to be anything between 12" x 12" up to 24" x 24".

The Four Seasons Quilt from DQS8 is about 21" x 26".
My swap partner had two sons who play stringed instruments, so I used fabric with sheet music as the backing, and made a special house with music coming out of the chimney.
The quilt for DQS7 is 24" square. I added a message for my swap partner on one of the selvages.
For DQS6, my partner liked quilts made with one shape. This one is an homage to the square. It's made with Seminole Patchwork. The squares are 1" finished.

My partner for DQS5 indicated the quilt would be given to her 2 year old daughter, so I made a quilt suitable for a little girl to play with.

For Doll Quilt Swap 4, I was matched with a partner who liked blues, aquas and teals. Her first name began with the letter "L" so I made that one a bit special.

Tomorrow, I'll show the quilts I received in the Doll Swaps.

Oh, you are so clever...I love them all! I have to tell you that when I first saw your free-pieced trees in your Four Seasons quilt, I had the courage to try a couple myself! They weren't half bad, and now I've made 4-5 to put in my liberated lady swap top. Thanks for the inspiration!

In stitches,
Teresa :o)
