    Traci can we have an update? Just wondering if you have them sorted and if they'll be on the return trip home tomorrow.

    2 packages are en route but not here yet... Bear with me, it will be worth the wait! Such pretties. I will try to take pics and post so you can see what you're anticipating.

    Any ideas of what batik swap should be next? More blocks? Table runner/wall quilt? Bag/purse? Chickens?

    more block or table runner/wall quilt works for me, I am not into making the bags.

    Cindy-

    There's a few of us that have a thing for chickens... and at some point, I'd like to do a batik chicken quilt.

    I am not into the chickens, but I understand. I am into snowmen and hummingbirds. but that doesn't mean I wouldn't sign up for the chicken swap.......might be fun.

    Traci, those wall hangings are cute for someone, just not me. I do like the idea of a picture wall hanging made from batiks ..... I'm thinking of making a winter-themed one (Christmas, snowman, or snow theme) for me. I'm putting different sizes of blocks together for a quilt when blocks are received.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Mary Mo... I am with you, I would like a winter themed one as well. could also do a fall themed one. may have to go to the batik store soon and look for some good one for winter themes.

    I vote for the winter/Christmas or wall hanging themed batiks next time.

    Waiting on one last package and will get to sorting... my kids get back home tomorrow but the packages should be heading back your way by Monday at the latest. Roughly 70 sets to sort through... Phew, nicely done ladies!!

    I'm leading towards a batik only table runner/wall quilt, with a twist of 10" squares so put your thinking caps on.
