Hi Kathy - Just wondering. Should we write our name and location on the blocks? That might be fun to see who did what and where they are from.

 I like this idea!  

went and bought my fabric today for this swap, wow, now I have 9 blocks  to finish for the Blue/white stars (due Nov 1) and these 16 blocks (due Dec 1st) plus getting the HSTs back on Saturday and then I've lost track on the other swaps I'm in - think there's a fall FQs and one other.

there's also the RR, due Oct 1st.  You think I would get a quilt done after all this, wouldn't you?  guess I'm in a sewing mood now, whether I want to or not!

Well, we are labeling our bags with our address, so I guess those who want to mark the blocks for their quilts could.

I like the idea of marking the blocks but since it was not in the original rules I think we should let everyone that has signed up so far have a chance to agree since some may have planned to give the quilt as a gift.  That being said, what does eveybody think?

I would prefer the blocks not be signed. However, at some point it might be fun to do a signature quilt. You could send a solid to each person to sign. That way you have some control over the quilt. Then you could add blocks fron friends in your area too

I would prefer we didn't mark the blocks, though I'm very open to signing a solid piece for anyone who'd like to have it.  

 

I would also like to sign up for a second set of hearts. :)

I would prefer we not mark the blocks as I do plan to give mine to the Wricsn Heart Association for a silent auction.

SInce it sounds like a mixed bag of responses...let's go with unsigned blocks at this time.  Roxanna, maybe we could look at doing a signature quilt in the future (after happy hearts).  That way we can all participate in both swaps, leave happy hearts as a gifting option, and look forward to creating a serious friendship quilt....we might even be able to do something crazy like pick a finished size and have folks sign up for their favorite block ,,,we could end up with a really beautiful patchwork sampler representative of our quilting friends...

Just thinking out loud....

Kathy, that is a swap I think I would like to get into - a block made by all my quilting friends here on QCA and we swap them around - that would make a very nice sampler quilt to remind me of all of you everytime I look at it... that is an awesome idea for a swap - and please consider me should you decide to do that!

Okay Gals....

Lots to report.

Liz, I did not get your message.  please send again

We still have open slots and FQs available to be claimed.  I am continueing to have some tech difficulties but I am going to try and post a pic of a sample block so everyone can get an idea of how cute these turn out.

 

Sorry for the poor photo quality but I think you get the idea.  Be sure and ask any questions.  Hope everybody is finding some fun fabric.  As a side note, this pattern is really cute using other colors so those of you who aren't sure about how you will use yur blocks, consider mixing them up with a few of your favorite fabrics!

Keep on stitchin'

Thea:

I think this is a swap that a lot of folks would be interested in.  I will post the idea in the idea thread and see if anyone is interested.  Because of the time of year and so many swaps happening, I think this might be a great new years idea...something like old friends/new friends stitched together through the ages.

Thoughts?  Anyone?

I would like to join in.  I am new to the boards and swaps, but not completely new to quilting.   Do all of the hearts we send have to use the same fabric?
