Quilts, quilts, quilts

I am very happy to have several new quilts in the works.
First is a queen sized(my biggest yet!) Denyse Schmidt-ish quilt for my sister Lauren. As it is a belated birthday gift and she has given me a lot of input on the design and colors I feel free to post progress pictures here. I want to be sure that I am making something that she will like and use. There is nothing sadder than an unappreciated handmade gift, yet they are given all of the time! I hope that we can avoid that happening here with some early consultations.
The second new quilt is a miniature quilt I am making for a friend's upcoming birthday. This one will not be belated! Here's a little sneak peek:Once it is given I will share all of the details. I am having so much fun with this one that I am almost done with it, even though the birthday is not for a while!
And of course, we can't forget "Doll Quilt Swap II"! I have not yet started my quilt for the swap but I have an idea that I am very very very excited about. I can't wait to share! I am also excited that so many people signed up for the swap and glad that I signed up early. I am so sorry for all of you who wanted to participate but didn't make it before the early cut off. I am sure that there will be many more opportunities in the future.

    I love your quilts, Liz. Is that a little strippy quilt? I have to make another. I love your sis' quilt, too. I'm making one very similar, but very different colors, for the swap.

    See you around! Can't wait to hear about your swap quilt!

  3. Whew! You are working hard..making me feel lazy. These quilts, I'm sure, are all going to be beautiful :)

  4. Best of luck w/ the queen sized quilt...it's a big undertaking, but so worth it.
