Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Wow that is beautiful and I love the optical illusion it creates. Just a fantastic play on color choices.
As for my block, I did not make it to the PO. That is on my list to do tomorrow. Sorry I let the deadline catch up with me. I had fun picking out the fabrics (since I had to do two!), learning a new technique and stitching it together. I will post a picture after my partner gets it. Don't want to spoil her surprize!
My sewing machine is calling my name! I decided to make my 6yo neice's American Girl a new wardrobe for Christmas, and Aunt T can't dissapoint.
BTW- did you do a new sign up for December? If so, I would like to do another month. Just could find a link. Please send it to me.
I am also wondering about a december swap. Ive finished last months and sent it out last week but never heard back from my partners if they recieved them nor have i recieved mine yet thou it is still early days if they mailed out at end of month.
Before I start another swap I need to know if we have enough swappers. We need at least 6 people to swap.
As long as there is enough interest I will continue them.
I had thought about skipping Dec as it is such a busy time for most people.
So let me know if we have enough to continue!
1) I'm in for December, if we are still on.
2) Josykatz- yes, I did get your block. Sorry for not posting sooner. This month, I had 3 quilts on my Long Arm- I am not normally that packed in, but it just turned out that way. One was a Bronze Star Quilt, one was a Purple Heart Quilt, and the third was a patriotic one that is going to a widow who lost her husband earlier this year in Afghanistan. That made my blocks a tiny bit late.
3) The two blocks I owe will be mailed by the end of this week, I promise. (probably with a little something extra for being late.)
I would be in for either December or waiting til January. My new job starts on Tuesday. YAY!! Now I can breathe. Bills were coming due and DH's paycheck was not going to be able to pay them, buy fabric and Christmas presents. Unemployment is so hard to get approved now. There are so many hoops you have to jump through. Once they are met, then you have a waiting period. Can't beleive I have been out of work for 4 weeks. I know there are others that have been out longer than that and they are still looking. Feeling blessed.
Well that makes 3 who want to do a Dec one so if you do want to that is alright by me. I just don't have time to make one this month.
Josy and Queen each swap with Shelley works for me unless someone else wants to jump in. I will post a thread for it then. Maybe someone else will join in.
