Quilting Frenzy...

I joined the Doll Quilt Swap 5 about 7 weeks ago. I thought "I've got plenty of time". Then the swap momma emailed me and reminded all of us the deadline is December 1st! So I decided to use this quilt top for the swap. I quilted and bound it this weekend and I hope to get the label on tomorrow night while watching Dancing with the Stars. I hope my secret partner likes it. I "simply" quilted a 1/4 inch from the seams...ah...that's 96 triangles...perhaps I should have re-thought that idea! It took A LOOOONG time to quilt.


I broke the monotony by rearranging ALL my fabric...it looks much better now as I can actually see it. But that means I can actually see it. I have toooo much fabric...if that's possible. Oh and I just ordered more from the Fat Quarter shop ( a small 'we just sold our other house" celebration gift). Unless the FQ shop has a whopper of a sale...I'm done for the year..LOL that's what 5 weeks? Easy peasy...
