So Sorry

I'm officially a jerk. Doll quilts everywhere are making their way through the postal system. Except for mine. It's sitting at home, waiting impatiently to be quilted, quite embarrassed about its tardiness. I keep telling it that it shouldn't be embarrassed. This is all my fault. But the good news is I should be sending the little darling on its way tomorrow. Only a day late...not too bad! This is so different than the first Doll Quilt Swap. I wasn't working when I did that one and I had never made a doll quilt so I just couldn't wait to make mine and sent it out very soon after recieving my partner's name. This time around there were so many more distractions and much less time for crafting.
The quilt top is done. Here is a little sneaky peek.
I am very happy with it and I can't wait to show you the whole thing. The quilting itself shouldn't take too I said, I'm hoping to get it out tomorrow!
Congratulations to all of you wonderful people who are able to meet deadlines. I hope your diligence is rewarded with equally prompt swap partners!


  1. Well, from this little glimpse I'd say it's plenty cute that your partner won't mind waiting an extra few days!

  2. I think being so very early last time might buy you a day or two this round, don't you?


  3. Your sneak peak looks great! Can't wait to see the rest.. and from the looks of it, your partner will probably be so happy with your quilt that an extra day or two will be like nothing!

  4. Good things come to those that wait, I'm sure it will be worth it :)
