Kathy, thanks for hosting.  Got mine on design wall and ready to sew together.  I got 2 sets of each so am making mine reversible and hope to mirror each.

I'm loving all the blocks!

Hi 

I received my hearts yesterday as well.  I think i received some of both groups from the same people, so I have many duplicates, is this the way the swap was supposed to work?

Liz and all....

There was only one group of 16.  Of the 16, 2 dropped out for medical and personal reasons that nobody could foresee.  There were several in the group that did two sets.  Each of those ladies sent 2 different blocks for each set.    Here is what everyone recieved....

3 blocks of your own-1 for each drop-out and one for your set

13 blocks from other members...check the blocks and not the labels as many used the same label for both sets.

Everyone that did two sets-double the above.

Like McDonald's, I filled the orders, double checked the orders, and then checked them one more time before sealing them up.  I also made several extra blocks for my blocks so that I could give folks more variety as some of the fabrics were really similar.

Hope this all makes sense and everyone is happy with their end product.

Kathy G

Kathy, that doesn't make sense with what I got. I was in the swap twice as was Debbie but I did not get what Debbie said she did. I sent a message to your Yahoo account  since this was my first time to sign in to QCA.

Liz, you are not alone.

Happy Hearts Block Swap 2013

Please look at it and give me some suggestions for a name for the quilt. I have to write a blurb for the Heart Association Auction booklet so the quilt must be named!!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the swap. Tonight was the Heart Ball and the quilt went to the highest bidder for $3,230.  Isn't that great? All funds benefit the American Heart Association. Thanks again!

That's great Roxana, and a lot of money raised for a wonderful cause. You must be very proud of yourself, I know I am.

I thought of you when I saw this cartoon.  Do you suppose you can claim the money the quilt brought in as the value of your donation???  That would be nifty!

Roxana, that is so awesome!! Guess we should do another heart theme for Charity again!  Such a wonderful cause!  Maybe a red dress one?  In any case, this was just amazing!
