Kathy G:

There has been a suggestion to do a signture block swap.  Because of the possible scope of this swap, I think it would be a great new year project...old friends/new friends-you get the idea.

Anyone interested or have suggestions?  I think it sounds like a great idea and a chance to share a little bit of ourselves with each other.

I would really be interested in this. There are so many blocks for signatures, I think we would have no problems picking a block. Great idea Kathy!

Melissa, I do have a question though based from your post. Would we just choose a block of our choice and sign it OR are there particular blocks for signatures that we choose from?

On the Postage Stamp Swap, it looks like we have a full group. I still have a question mark on one participant. 

Anyone interested in my starting a second group? It'd be the same requirements exactly. I've already cut 24 squares for 16 bags and I think I could easily fill a second 16 bags. That took so little effort.

What does everyone think?

Hello swappers, I’ve been silent as I had major issues with singing in on QCA. Finally resolved. Back in the loop as it were. 


I hope to participate in some of the upcoming swaps, as well as start the LC Winter Theme Swap in October. The issues with QCA were stalling the sign up.
I will get with Roxana at the end of September to open the thread, but in the interim, I wanted y'all to be inspired to use those beautiful squares you collected last year.

Thank you so much Roxana for posting for me the LC information on page 43 of this discussion.

Whatever happened with the calendar block exchange?  Is that going to happen?

I think Melissa is working on it. She wanted the charms all out before she started it. That was my understanding.

Roxana - There are particular blocks that are called signature blocks because they have an area in the middle to sign and are usually a star block. Here's a link for one. I hope it works.

I really like that pattern.  I wonder if others would be willing to make several of them?  How many folks do you think would sign up?  I was thinking that 25 would allow a larger number of people to be included but I wonder if that number would overwhelm...thoughts?

Hi Kathy and everyone - I have EQ7 and there a lot of signature blocks on that program. I think it would be great if everyone did their own block style. Just a thought.

Roxana - I'm ready for the calendar block when ever you are ready to set it up for me. Again thank you so much for stepping in to keep these parties rolling.

I think that's a great idea, then each person could choose a block that would be at their skill level, or one that they were willing to make 25 times. You would set the block size, I like smaller ones like 6"

I confess, I am too swapped up until,after Jan1. I also confess that if I need to make 25. Blocks, it needs to be a really simple block

Melissa,

I will be away from my computer a lot this weekend...if the calendar block thread opens, would you sign me up?  I don't want to jump the line, so if it isn't possible that's ok too.  

Thanks.

Regina
