    A couple of years ago I did the quilt along challenge of "Marry A Farmer" on the board here? I paper pieced all 111 blocks. I have an EQ program that helps me turn traditional blocks into paper pieced blocks. I'm still going to do some Spring Themed blocks as well however, cause I love them! Thank you ladies for your kind comments.

    There are a lot of links to different weeks, but I didn't take a picture of mine all done...sorry...they're 6 1/2" and are done in the more muted tones and someday they're going to make an amazing quilt, but for now they are in a neat stack in a sewing drawer with my bazillion other UFO's? LOL!

    I'm sharing a tip with everyone regards this swap...it seems like there's tons of time before the deadline and there certainly is ample time...what I am doing is to make just one block every day or so and then I move on to all the other quilt alongs and personal quilting I've got going...this way, I don't feel like I'm spending too much time or feel guilty that I'm not spending any time to get my sets done? I have two card trick blocks made and will post when I get a set done. Have a super fun day PPing! Be sure and show us your work and blocks...we love to oooohhh and aaahhhhh!

    Okay, this is one block I'm considering doing for this swap. It's not a Spring theme, but is done in spring colors! The name is Card Trick. What do you think? These will be 6" finished blocks.

    I picked my patterns and have a basket of fabrics that I want to add some more colors too. I am not sure if I will stick with these paterns but I will make atleast one of each to see how they work out.

    Lovngrandma, I have a program that lets me re-size blocks and that's what I did with the Card Trick block. You can find it for the 12 1/2" size on Quilter's Cache for free? Good luck!

    Anna, sounds like you have plan...I have been pulling out various patterns and have a basket/flower blocks also that I'm going to give a try to...and an egg...had so much going on and haven't had time to sew much...but hopefully tomorrow will post my first set of blocks! Yahoo! Has anyone else made any blocks yet? Just curious?
