All is revealed!

I can finally do a full reveal of my Doll Quilt III swap quilt.

The reason I was being so sneaky about showing the whole quilt was because my partner had posted a photo of a sunrise in Alaska, where she lives, as her inspiration for the quilt she was making.

So I decided to have a go at a sunrise quilt myself.

Doll Quilt Swap III

I found this pattern on line - sorry I can't remember where as it was some time ago. I think it was actually called 'Rising Sun' or something equally obvious.

Well my apron package is ready and I'm currently finishing off my next little quilt for the Lemonade Doll Quilt Swap quilt which was also due yesterday. Unfortunately I've put my neck out which I haven't done for a very long time. I've ice packed it as that's what usually works but my goodness it makes my whole right side ache including my head!!

I worked yesterday and lucky for me I got to meet the gorgeous Christie from Pigeon Pair who was at Amitie for a blog meet. I also had a quick hello with the glowingly pregnant Corrie - I swear she has so much energy and the most beautiful skin! And you can now get our patterns in Corries shop!

And by the way, if you are interested, the Doll Quilt 4 swap is up and running as of today. They are taking 100 participants so if you want to join in (yes I mean you Kellie!) get your email off to Susan.

I promise I will post some photos of the quilt and apron swap goodies later this week when I'm feeling a little more myself.

I really love the sun rise! I love orange and yellow and I bet most of those fabrics are folded nicely somewhere in my stash. I read through this post with fear of being 'outted' .... thank goodness you resisted! :)
I hope your neck feels better soon!
