Wow - can it be true? Half the year is over? Well just about, but where did the time go? We had a Winter that would not end, no Spring, and now nothing but rain. I hope the other half is a little more pleasant.
I totally forgot about design wall Monday - I managed to get two more flower blocks done. I love this Boho fabric and a great way of using up my stashed Shot Cottons.
And since this photo, I have added three more rows to the Jelly Roll QAL. It is taking a little longer as I have been re-pressing blocks that get flipped opposite direction so I can mesh the seams.
And since I have a lot of stuff for NewFO, I will share the Monthly Doll Quilt Swap piece that I sent to my partner. The theme was 'Fantasy' along the Midsummer Nights Dream idea, but my partner and I agreed to make a guilt based on our dream wish. Diane's was to go to Tahiti - so my Tahiti quilt and dollie to her.
And mine was to have my own little cabin in the woods - she got this so pegged with all the special scenes and setting. I cried when I first opened this as it so reminds me of my Dad and all the connections to the homestead and mountain. And a very sweet homemade card and tiniest of jointed felt teddies.
