We're all quiet because we're sewing....you're the only one finished-LOL
If you listen close, you might be able to hear us all stitching all around the country :)
I know you're crazy busy with lots of swaps but wanted to invite you and the other blue and white star swappers to join the red and white happy hearts swap. I think the hearts and stars might be an interesting mix or could be a lot of fun for twin beds/bunk beds. Check it out! Hope you decide to join!
PS..one set of stars done and half way through the second...only 18 more to go Woo-Hoo!
The thread is open for the red and white happy hearts swap...check it out! Hope you'll join!
Hi everyone. I am wondering how everyone is doing. I am almost finished with my first set and plan on being at least half finished with the Ohio Star set for this group by Saturday. Maybe, if things go as well as today, I will be done!
i am going out of town from 9/29 to 10/5. Please do not mail to me until I get back. I just don't want to not be here when things arrive!
Could you PM me your address, Judi. I don't think that came when you added me to the groups. Or I just can't find it. Thanks.
My blocks are done and waiting to be found again! My sewing room ate them along with every inch of table top space half my floor space and most of my sanity! Here I may have some responsibility to claim in this the latest disaster zone but I choose to acknowledge it as creative explosions... I used batiks for the block except in the center of the one pictured on the right. It has a white with a metallic shiny white scroll print in the very center square but the main star was a batik. I just can't remember which one I ended up f the fabrics that making but know it was one of these two! Below these two is a close up of the center and a beginning attempt at a different arrangement of colors that I know I didn't make, heck the picture was as far as I got making the block and had decided not to finish it!
This has been a very quiet group! I guess everyone is busy quilting! Here is the list of the Blocks that I have received' I nposted the first group on their thread
Judi (that's me)
SEW WHAT'S THE LATEST COUNT ON HOW MANY BLOCKS YOU RECEIVED. I CAN HARDLY WAIT TO SEE THEM.
please be sure to mail your blocks on time. I must have everything mailed on time.
Could you please pm your info to send my blocks to.
For better or worse they are done. The colors look very good.
I'm pleased with my choice of fabrics. There are a couple I would
have liked to have done over but the quilt shop no longer had
any of the fabric. I would have had to start over for the 12 blocks
to be the same and I had already spent $60.00 on the fabric. I had
bought extra to use on the quilt I was going to make the blocks out of.
I used up my extra fabric due to trying to get the blocks to come out correctly.
This is my first block swap and I'm not very good at getting everything to come
out right yet. For me this has been a stressful and expensive experience so far.
I hope with experience it won't be quit so stressful.
Please everyone in this swap bear with me, with practice I should get better.
I'm looking forward to seeing all the beautiful block,
I SENT MY BLOCKS AND YOU POSTED YOU RECEIVED THEM 11-6-13, AND NOW I SEE A POST 11-13-13 YOU NEED TO RECEIVE MY BLOCKS ON TIME???? DO YOU HAVE THEM OR NOT????
SORRY I GUESS THOSE NAMES ON 11-6-13 ARE THE ONLY ONES YOU'VE RECEIVED SO FAR.
Granny's. I have yours. I listed the ones I have
Today was the day you all were to mail your blocks! I do not like feeling like the 3rd grade teacher who hounded you for your signed permission slips. But I am beginning to feel like that(ggg).
Please, please get them in the mail to me. I really have to mail at least the Monday before Thanksgiving. If I do not hear from anyone and the date passes, I am going to swap the ones I have and mail. I have no other choice. I have a houseful coming for Thanksgiving snd I need to have this mailed by then
i really hate scolding but....the HD wants the dining room back!
