    Yes!! I can. Name:  Sunshine.JPG

Size:  66.7 KBTimes past when I was young and in my prime, I had a riding mare...who walked across the strawberry bed on our first ride, so she was named "Strawberry", lovely sorrel colored mare. Thanks to the PC rider who sent this fabric to me.

    Trail of the covered wagon trail, which stopped every night under the starlight, and the bright moon light showed the landscape in its moonlight glow.

    **whistling a happy tune*

    QNSue ... wonder whom that might have been? Great block with Strawberry's story. Thos wagon wheels really look like they are rolling along!

    CarrieM ... oops! maybe the wheel fell off that covered wagon? Your fabric choices present such a tranquil feel.

    MiraB ... More *sighs* ... are you as enraptured with these fabrics and how they go together as the rest of us have become? I'd say that's one elegant telephone.! Must be for the boudoir!!! Have a great quilty get-away!!

    Anael ... Pretty-ness for sure! And would go with your Ode to Mom quilt. Good to "see" you here with us! Pleeeeeeeease, pretty pleeeeeeeeease with sugar on it .... would you join us for the Bonus Block Swap? You really should!!!! Pleeeeeeeeease?

    All ... please help me lasso Anael back with us for the Swap!!

    Yeeeeehaw!
    The general gist ... you make a block for each of the people in the swap list. I think with you we're at 12? You can make all the same blocks for everyone or can make different ones and label whom each is for. Any block pattern, finished size the same as the PC blocks. Some are planning to include them as part of their PC quilt. Some on the backing. And some a different project. Due Date not until 2013. CarrieM is coordinating and can give you the fine details!! We will be mailing all to her and then she'll shuffle them around mail the mixed set back to us.

    So we can count you in, right?

    Others ... please add in what I have forgotten to tell Anael!
    And twist her arm a bit too!!!!

    Yes, Anael, we decided to extend the PC Trail a bit more by making a special block for each person on the PC trail...eight and half inches unfinished...our personal choice of what block to make. Anne (honchey) did not want it to interfere with PC trail, so we are finishing it up in December, and then starting officially on the bonus block in January...do not know if we are going to do a show and tell or just ship the blocks to Carrie. She has all our addresses and info to ship the complete blocks on to each of us doing the bonus blocks....I think...you would be the 12th one to join, so that makes it an even dozen to make.

    I plan on adding directly to the top of my quilt; I have asked, along with some others for no white in the block, just off white or cream color... And am brainstorming about the block itself with ties back to the state of Missouri...an embroidered block with the state outlined in red and a blue bird sitting in the center of the area...done on a cream colored background. No decision yet...we do have a pattern for a Maple leaf for OuiltE, and a frog pattern for Mirabelle, if you let Carrie know, she can forward the patterns to you.

    I read in a different thread that your son & wife are having triplets??? Congrats. Wow!!.

    Anael...QuiltE has covered most of the bases. This came out of talking about substitute blocks and it grew into sharing something with everyone. We'll send Carrie our blocks as well as what postage will be for her to send blocks back to us so she won't bear that expense. We'll sign the blocks with our CB signature. I was going to put them on my PC quilt but am reconsidering. A wall hanging would be on display all the time and the quilt will not. I do hope that you can join us. You do such lovely work.

    Good add ons of info QNSue and GGal
    ... also, there was a tulip block created for you, Anael!!

    However, I don't believe we have to use any of those created blocks in the swap.
    For sure, I'm going to make one of each of those blocks for my quilt.

    I haven't been doing the PC lately ... haven't been near my machine since the first of August!
    However, I have committed that absolutely I WILL have my swap blocks done on time!!

    I I have decided on what block ... just haven't finalized what fabrics.

    I didn't do any PC blocks lately and didn't plan on finishing all the blocks. But I will participate in the swap. Only problem is covering postage from the US to Europe. I will talk with Carrie about that. Signing the blocks means on the front? Or on the back?
    Maybe we could start a new thread for the bonus blocks in Januari?

    Just got home from a nice lunch with a friend from church and then grocery shopping. I see most everything has been covered for Anael regarding the bonus blocks. Re: postage, Mirabelle mentioned just using Paypal and sending me the return postage that way...will that work for you both (QuiltE and Anael)?

    Here is what I have typed up for details:

    We are making 8" finished blocks…like the PC ones

    Not sure yet how many...I will send a final count hopefully by mid-November as we are finishing up the regular PC blocks. We have 11 counting me...if Anael joins that will be 12.

    What block design and fabrics is up to you. If you want to do something that will remind us of your location, of you, or of our PC "ride" that would be great. If you want to make all your blocks the same that is fine or if you want to make certain blocks for certain people, that is good too...just be sure to label individual blocks so I know who gets what.

    Please sign your blocks on the front. How much info you include is up to you. Some ideas: QB name, real name, date, and location (state/province/country)

    Do you want white or cream if used?
    Cream or Off White: QNS, Carrie, Oksewglad, Honchey
    Either is fine: Dublb, QuiltE, JanRN, Mirabelle, Gardnergal970, Jeanie, Deranged_damsel (?)

    I think that is all. Any questions, please ask.

    Oh and Anael, if you decide to join, can you please send me a PM with your name and email. I can send out emails so no one misses the posts.

    Carrie, I just PMd you!

    Either white or off white if possible please. I didn't use cream (as far as I can remember).
    It's good we have enough time to think about what blocks to make and how to sign them.

    PayPal is ok with me.

    I'm thrilled you are going to be with us on the Block Swap!

    Not sure which blocks to post this week. I think Honchey watched another debate and hit the merlot (or just skipped the debate and went straight to the merlot LOL). Here's some blocks from either this week or next.Name:  Sunshine & Telephone.jpg
