Such excitement last night waiting to get the doll quilt swap partners! As a swap mama this round it was doubly exciting. I had to stay up until midnight to synchronise the send out with the other swap mamas. It wasn't easy to work out as 1 mama is in Australia, I am here in Germany, there is 1 in Canada and the other are spread through the different timezones in the US! But we pulled it off. Just a couple of hiccups but otherwise everybody should have got their partner by now and the stalking can begin!
To keep myself going during the wait I made a couple of blocks for the talented Susi. She sent out fabrics this month for the Eurovision Quilters Bee.
Susi wanted a gnome house based on this block.
This is my attempt.
A very cute idea for a quilt and I am lucky that Amelie and Hanna didn't see it or they would be clamouring for a gnome house quilt too ;-)
Susi also asked if we had a chance could we make a toadstool block based on this one. I love the addition of the lace. It really makes the block pop. I am going to have to start adding more embellishment like that to my blocks.
This is the toadstool I made.
All in all quite an enjoyable way to spend the pre-dqs8 day!
But now I have my partner's info I am off to do some stalking!
