Tax Time Doll Swap

I took part in a Tax Time Doll Swap using the colors red, white and blue. It was a challenge to make the blocks measure about 3 inches or smaller. I signed up because I needed a distraction. I was going to have surgery on my cervical spine in April and didn't want to think about it.

As the deadline loomed near, I realized that I had to finish it before surgery on April 6th. It was not due until April 15th. I finished it on April 4th except for the label on the back. Doctor said NO SEWING for 2 weeks! I'm thinking, "Yeah Right"! Ouch! Ouch! Ouch! Ouch! Motion is painful, but I was determined to do all of the mini quilt myself.  It came out really nice. I was able to add the label by hand on April 11th.
