Valentine Swap

On February 28th our Dallas Modern Quilt Guild small group participated in a doll quilt Valentine Swap. This is our second swap as a group and we have a 3rd one planned for April. Our next one is to incorporate a recycled fabric or item into the doll quilt.

We all stuck to hearts for our theme but they turned out so different. I did some beading and embroidery on my swap along with some fun fur to add character. It wasn't exactly how I wanted it to turn out but I did learn a few things in the process.

I love the color combination that Kristie chose. I drew her number and so this is the one I received.

Susan made this quilt using a weaving technique. It turned out so cute and I think she should make a tutorial on this technique.

Some people are overachievers! Pam did a design on both sides of her swap.

Angie participates in lots of swaps and does such a great job on them. She always goes the extra mile.

If you ever want help with color, Sarah is your ticket. She always has fun color combinations.

Janet did a lot of beading on hers. The pictures probably do not do it justice but it looked like a lot of work.

I am always amazed at how much these ladies get done. They all have families and very demanding jobs and seem to always find time for their passion.
