And were off! With just a few days since signs up have been posted, there is already a lot of buzz in the group! I would like to introduce the swap mama's this round:

Susan- chickenfoot has been around in Doll Quilt Swap all the way since the very first round, and a Mama since DQS2! Just look at this inspiring wall of doll quilts :
Kimmie- quiltinkimmie is a lively Mama in this group, enthusiastic and full of sarcasm! Kimmie has been participating in DQS since round 3 or 4, and has been a Mama for the last 5 rounds. Just look at this beauty she sent out last round for DQS10:

Sue - suejoy70, is one of our Mama's all the way from Australia. She has been quilting for 15 years, and joined DQS in round 7, and has been a Mama since DQS10. Last round she sent out a stunning paper pieced quilt, with lots of amazing movement from the quilting:

Susan - flossieblossoms just started quilting a few years ago, but has been sewing/crafting and doll making for ages. She has been with DQS since round 6, and a Mama for the last 4 rounds. Flossie sent out a bright Rainbow Village quilt for the last round:
 Kandra, mindboggld is a computer programmer and embraces her geeky side! She loves to embroider and quilt and has been participating in DQS since round 9, and joined as a Mama for the last round. For DQS10 she sent out a lovely quilt with wonky house, and cute hand quilted stars:

Solidia, Modernsewl has been participating in Doll quilt swap from the very first round, and has been a Mama since round 8. She not only quilts/sews but also likes to scrapbook, crochet and garden. Here's a great collection of doll quilts she has made made for DQS and a few other swaps:
Carol, Mamacjt is our Angel Mama for the group. That means whenever someone gets a partner who flakes, or a quilt is lost in the mail, Carol makes and send them a quilt! Carol already has 3 (Yes, three!!) doll quilts made ready to be sent out as angel quilts for this round.
Partner emails go out around July 8th, so now is a great time to practice some mini quilt blocks, update your flickr stream with projects you have been working on, gathering up favorites to use in a mosaic if you are in this round, and most importantly- Stay Active & Participate in the Doll Quilt Swap Group!
