I have been checking out the flickr sites on doll quits and it is so inspiring - I have so many ideas in my head!

Here are my swap answers.

2. What colours DON'T you like? black, brown,
3. What style of quilt do you like best? (Abstract, arty, traditional, modern etc.) Any.
4. What techniques and trimmings do you like? any

Hope that makes it a bit easier for my quilt partner.

Lily's answers :)

I’d love a quilt for Romily’s dolly bed. The ‘quilt’ that came with it is definitely not up to scratch! The size of the current quilt is 17” wide and 19” long, so around that size would be great (although I am the first to admit it’s not an exact science!!)

1. 1. What colours do you like?

Anything suitable for a little girl’s dolly quilt, but I'm a little partial to raspberry and pale green...

2. 2. What colours DON'T you like?

Still laughing at ‘poo brown’

3. 3. What style of quilt do you like best?

Arty, but for a dolly quilt, anything goes

4. 4. What techniques and trimmings do you like?

Applique is great and ric rac could be good on a doll quilt! Oh yeah, and I don't like yo-yos.

5. 5. Is there anything you DON'T want on your quilt?

No Bratz for us either! LOL they give me the heebie geebies!

Adds Doll Quilt swap answers

Cate would like a "blank-let" for one of her soft horses, she's really not fussed on the dimentions or colours or techniques, but if you could use some puppy dog motif fabric that would be fab! Cates fave colour is pink but she will be happy with anything you choose to make xx

How big is your child's bear/doll?

Obviously I can't ask just the person I am making for as it would give me away, so I thought I'd ask the question generally of everyone. It might help someone else too. Hopefully my swapee will add a comment with her child's bear/doll height ;)

I know you might have a few bears or dolls who will use the quilt, but just pick your child's favourite one to measure up for me.

I want to make a little extra something to go with the quilt, which is why I need the size. A height from head to toe, and a chest measurement would be PERFECT.

Thanks in advance, Joy

Ingrid's Doll Quilt Swap Answers

1. What colours do you like? Girly girly all the way! Pinks greens yellows, sunshiny or soft
2. What colours DON'T you like? Poo brown, muddy green, dirty orange
3. What style of quilt do you like best? (Abstract, arty, traditional, modern etc.) I have no idea. Surprise me!
4. What techniques and trimmings do you like? Applique, embroidery, yoyos, foundation pieced blocks, rik rak, lace, ribbons, buttons...? These all sound lovely to me, although I am not generally partial to lace.
5. Is there anything you DON'T want on your quilt? Ummmm, I hate licensed stuff but I am pretty sure that most of you don't have a hidden stash of Bratz fabric you will try and use up. Well I hope not anyway.

Happy Quilting!

Joy's Doll Quilt answers

1. What colours do you like? I like most colours but like Helen would rather not have a multicouloured quilt - please stick to 2-3 colours. At the moment I am in love with the children's Michael Miller prints (especially good for a doll quilt!) so having one of those in there as a feature print would be FANTASTIC!!! As the quilt will be for Austy's boy doll and some teddies, boy colours would be good thanks.

2. What colours DON'T you like? No liscensed cartoons and no pinks please.

3. What style of quilt do you like best? (Abstract, arty, traditional, modern etc.) Any

4. What techniques and trimmings do you like? Applique, embroidery, yoyos, foundation pieced blocks, rik rak, lace, ribbons, buttons...? Any except yoyos

5. Is there anything you DON'T want on your quilt? Already covered above
