This is what I have been working on in the Doll quilt swap over at Flickr. We make a quilt to exchange with another person. My person usually likes very frivolous things with applique but she said she wanted something different. I free pieced the circles and then continued the curved piecing to the outside to give the illusion of movement. I hope she likes it. My original plan called for this gray linen which I may still do.. but she seems to like color so I will see if this catches her eye...
Ok. I am going to try to start this blog thing again.. as I am shit at it.. excuse the french... I have been following along Lynne over at Flickr and she is having a Quilt A- Long... they are encouraging us to use our blogs and well I have been slack at it. Sometimes I am just too tired to write and near the end I was just sending over things from flickr with out even saying anything. Now I think I will try to start again.. even with baby steps of just a few words at time. Any way you all should go over to flickr and see Lilly quilts.. QAL...


  1. Hello Mary! Good to hear from you. I have to tell you that this mini is very appealing colorwise. I'm not so sure of the style...but then I already have the most beautiful quilt you've ever made!

  2. so good to see you posting again~!!~

    LOVE the doll quilt and you really did manage to capture a wonderful feeling of motion with it~!!~
    it has both a contemporary and a primitive/traditional (Gees Bendish) feeling to it.


  3. Thanks for posting .... Cindy I do love that southwest quilty.. maybe I will post some pictures from past doll quilt swaps.. and thanks Lynda...I was aiming for Gee's Bend
