More Swap Peeking

My sewing time has been taken up with swap items recently so nothing new to show apart from the progress I've made with these. I've done some quilting and hand embroidery on this little gift I'm making for the spring swap. I hope it looks spring like.


The picture below shows some more of the Doll Quilt 6 quilt. Sorry but it looks a bit out of focus. It's actually more of a wall hanging than a doll quilt but I think a lot of the members use them as wall hangings. I've added some flying geese blocks and am in the process of making some foundation pieced trees. I haven't decided whether to make one more or two more trees. I thought the little birdies may like some trees to fly off too. Above the line of trees I plan to do another line of flying geese flying in the opposite directions to the first row.




Once I've finished the swaps and the Linus quilt I'm looking forward to making something for myself. I've recently bought some yummy fabrics from America which I've had delivered to my brother who lives in New York, he's coming home for a few days at Easter so he'll bring them with him. It saves on the postage costs and the fabrics are cheaper than here although with the exchange rate as it is it's not as cheap for us as it was.

Bye for now, Maria.

I love, love, love both of your quilts today (as usual)! And I'm curious to know what fabrics you're getting!

Definitely looks like Spring. So pretty. I also love how you did your flying geese on your doll swap quilt. I've never seen them staggered like that before.
