Hi Partner! Did you just hear you have drawn me? I don't know whether you are an experienced quilter or a newbie, but have no fear!
Important rule number one:
I am thrilled you are making something especially for me and I am sure to like what you make just BECAUSE you have made it for ME and put a lot of love and effort into it. So don't fret!!
Number two (and so on...). I am sure (if you are like me...) you are trying to figure out my likes and dislikes and make something I would like. Again, surprise me! I might like something totally different I personally would have never thought of! But to make it a little easier, I have made favourites of the doll quilts in previous rounds that caught my eye. The quilt I received in DQS8 is amongst them and I love that one!
I think in the space the mama's gave for likes/dislikes I allready gave you an idea. I like soft pastel romantic and also Kaffe Fassett glorious colour together. That is quite a wide range! I love art quilts, but also like pieced quilts and applique so again, don't worry too much, I would like it if you enjoy making my quilt rather than do something you think I might like and hate doing...
Not too much into the thimbleberries, civil war repro's direction. I did once upon a time but more into modern quilting at the moment. Websites in that direction I enjoy are Oh Fransson, Red Pepper Quilts and Film in the Fridge.
I also totally love Fig Tree fabrics and Joanna Figuerra designs. Amongst other favourite designers are Heather Bailey, Anna Maria Horner, Sandi Henderson, Joel Dewberry and Echino.
I haven't made a mosaic yet because, as you will see from my blog, I have an exam coming up and the windows are going to be replaced so I am somewhat snowed under (and it would take a bit of time to find out how and to do it...which I haven't got at the moment...).
My favourite colour is turquoise/aquamarine (isn't Hunky Dory darling?)and love the blues but lately also turning to brighter colours and working with reds and oranges. Not too keen on purple or black/white.
I'm not a very experienced quilter myself so you don't need to worry I am expecting perfection, I am not!
Just relax, enjoy the process, and be happy making my quilt. I am so excited you are doing this for me and cannot wait to see what you have thought up!
Best of luck and speak to you late August/beginning of September!
