Well, Sharon and I both belonged to the Doll Quilt Swap - Sharon still does belong. I dropped out in the spring because I had over committed myself - anyone else out there do stuff like that?? A couple of months ago I was leaving a comment on one of the darling quilts she had made for that month's Doll Quilt Swap and said I was sorry we had never had the opportunity to swap. She emailed me back and said lets do it anyway!!
So we did and here is the darling quilt she sent to me along with her signature dolly that matches the fabrics in the quilt!! Our "theme" was the state we live in. As you can see, Sharon lives in New York and here is what she said about what the different blocks represent:
"Mine is a NY Beauty block and the printed stamp is something I bought at a quilt show vendor maybe 3 yrs. ago(?). Dutchman's Puzzle is my heritage as well as where I live was settled by the Dutch. The Hole in the Barn Door with the cabin is certainly representative of Vroomans Quilts. And all those apples - guess because I have been doing up so many apples, but we had a huge orchard once - even had a roadside stand where we sold produce from the farm."
So, now I have something to always remind me of my sweet friend, Sharon. Thank you, Sharon, I love both the quilt and the little dolly!!
Here I am showing off Sharon's quilt at our first Quilt Guild meeting of the year ~
