Doll Quilt, and more...

Well, I've been working on my doll quilt. I have most of the top completed. It's a green sunshine & shadow(same design as my aunt's sort of quillow) with 1 inch squares. I just have a couple more rows to put on, and then I'm going to quilt it.
It's supposed to represent my State(Oregon)
Do you think I should put a few trees on, or leave it like it is?
I'm debating it, as the 1 inch squares are actually pieced together, not strip pieced or paper pieced. That was a lot of work, and the trees will be more work. I don't know what kind of a quilt I'm going to get, I just don't know that I want to put a lot of time and effort into something, send it, and then get something that isn't as nice.
I am not sure yet, I'm going to try to get a few opinions, so please comment! :)

Getting Caught Up(at last)

Well, I have been thinking about my deadlines. I have most out of the way by now. My dad's quilt is done, my Aunt's quilt is done, I don't have any immediate swaps to fulfill, which is nice. I just have the Treadle On Block Exchange to do, and that's the end of the year. I have a few of those done as well, so it isn't like I am really putting it off. I have a bag of scraps to send somebody, as well, but that's about it.

I had joined a few secret pal swaps, and I've sent all of mine out, and I've gotten most of mine(I think there is still one to get)

So, what to do now?
I joined a year round Secret Angel swap, that sounds fun. My main concern is that there is not a limit for the amount to send somebody. I don't want to send a small envelope and get a box, or vice versa!!
It still sounds fun though, so I am hopeful it'll work out.

I also joined a Doll Quilt Swap. I am supposed to do a quilt to represent my state(Oregon)
I'm thinking about a 1inch sunshine&shadow in greens, with some trees appliqu├ęd on.

I seem to be addicted to swaps!!!
