    I don't have anything right either but would also be willing to help somewhere along in the process....fabric or blocks.

    that is so kind of you to offer. The quilt sounds like it might be a good fit. I like the description of it. Very pretty. Let me know if Jillaine decides to go this way. I'll send a couple dollars and maybe others could too to make this happen.

    Lindy-2, if this works out and you could send me the quilt top unfinished, I'd be willing to get the batting and back on it - then if someone else wants to help with the rest of it, it would be a true guild group project. Let me know.

    I will also donate money to the backing and quilting. It is heartbreaking to know that someone in this group made and sent her quilt and did not receive hers in return. I just don't understand how someone could do this. Hopefully knowing that her quilt will truly be a group effort and out of love, will make the quilt really special to her.

    As for why we lose people in swaps, life happens. It's been my experience with this swap that sometimes life has gotten in the way. What I really don't like, though, is when people don't communicate. I'd MUCH rather see "Hey, life's getting in the way; I can't meet my commitment" than to see thin air.

    AND having said all that, I am AMAZED that despite what life has thrown several participants in this swap, including bypass surgery and family emergencies, they STILL managed to finish a quilt for a stranger.
