I sent you a pm. Please include me in the list. I am so excited for this. I have never done one of these before, but it sounds like so much fun.
I will try the Checker block star-Original.
I have only one spot left in the Blue and White Star Block swap. I am hoping to get this spot filled soon. If you have not given me your block name, please get it to me. Check the original post to make sure I have your name and block name.
If I get enough interest, I will open a 2nd group. Since some might be in both groups, I think that the second group would have to be different blocks.
It was a hard choice Judi, but I think I'll do Morning Star #2 from Quilter's Cache. If there is enough interest I would like to be included in the second swap as well. I have some other star blocks in the running if need be. If not then I'll make them from my stash to make a bigger quilt. Thanks for running this swap and thanks to Roxanne who has taken the burden off Barbara as she recovers from her surgery.
Please sign me up! I will pick my star and let you know by tonight.
Okay! Going with "another star"
Here's where it gets tricky...we are doing 12.5 inch blocks but these patterns are for 12 in only. What is the trick to fitting in that 1/2 inch and have all the blocks match up? Sorry to be the dorky one here.
The 12 on Quilters Cache means it finishes at 12 but when you make it, the block will measure 12 1/2 because it's not sewn into a quilt yet. Hope this helps.
We have filled the 12 places. If I get enough interest, I will definitely set up a second set of swaps. The only thing is that the participants would need to choose other blocks as some will be in both swaps. Should I put you in a list for a tentative second swap?
Sure....my second star would be Variable Star from Quilter's Cache. I won't be too upset if there is only one set of swaps but I know I'm going to want more than 12 blocks to make this quilt. Thanks for putting me down for a tentative second swap.
Thank you! Makes perfect sense now that I think about it.
I would like to do a second set of stars as well....I think I would like to try the Empire star...If there are enough others!
Judi, I sent you a PM.
Judy, I am going to see how the second group comes along before I commit to it. I am thinking about it.
for the block Whirling Star 2.
Hi Judi - I would really love to do a second block swap also. I'd like to be included if you are doing a second group. I just love the block swaps.
Georgetown CA I'd Rather Be Quilting
Roxana opened a second thread for the second group. I will post everything again on it with the sign ups I have so far and remove them from the first group's post.
i should have it set up by tonight.
