DQS8 ideas

Got some of my ideas finally drawn out for Doll Quilt Swap 8 onto paper this morning! (you can see the photo better over on flickr)
Colors I will be using for this quilt are -lime green/chartreuse, red/pink, and aqua/teal.

1) white stripes with wavy fm quilting, with two rows of tiny hexagons. Ignore how the left row looks, I will be using tiny 1/2 hexagons.
2) log cabin block with a birdie embroidery in the center
3) off center. left will be flying geese, right will be appliques circles of various sizes on a white background. This one is my favorite, and I like that I could do a half-sie kinda quilt and combine two ideas.
4) right side is appliqued circles of various sizes on a white background. left will be made up of three log cabins, each in the different colors I am using - chartreuse/lime green, pink/red, and aqua/teal.
5) top right will be an embroidered bird, or the tree/bird embroidery from little dear. Surrounding it will be strips with varying colors and sizes of squares/rectangles.

Let me know what you think! I am going to go out this weekend to start looking for fabric.

Very cool ideas! My vote goes to one of the embroidered birds for sure. I think #5 is my favorite. tort

I love the color scheme, and cannot wait to see what fabrics you pick out! All of these blocks are great--I can't wait to see how it turns out:-)
