I -told- you Mom has been lurking in the Quilt blogs! She even joined a Swap group. She joined a Doll Quilt Swap. There are 100 people (99 ladies and one gentleman). They will each make a small quilt between 12" x 12" up to 24" x 24". It must be quilted, and have a label on the back that has the maker's name and location. The quilts must be shipped by September 1. It is a secret swap. Mom knows the identity of her swap partner, and her color preferences, but Mom doesn't know who will be making a little quilt for her.
Mom was going to make the little Doll Swap quilt after the SSP was finished, but she is waiting for something so she can't work on the SSP for a couple of days, so she decided to have some fun and tackle this little quilt. She didn't expect to get so much done so quickly.
Anyway, I was happy to see that yesterday, everybody agreed with me. I liked the ABC's WITH the flowers.
Of course, Poppy Q was absolutely correct that the quilt needs a balance of colors. So Mom decided that one of the letters needed to be made in the same fabrics as the flowers. She picked the hot pink because it is one of the colors that appear in the letter "G," shown above, but she also tried this dark red-violet, but it doesn't photograph very well:
Here is the letter L made in the Hot Pink:
Here is the letter L made in the red-violet, the other color in the flowers:
Mom will replace the blue L with the pink one, and add the flowers somehow. She doesn't like the empty space above the flowers, so she'll play with it.
Don't worry, I'll tell you ALL about it!
