    Okay I have to say this. I'm getting really frustrated. I have been sewing all weekend to get my blocks done, and each one comes out just a tiny tiny bit short. One way measures exactly 12 1/2'' and the other 12 1/4''. I know I was told only 1/8'' margin...but I still want to participate. I want to send my blocks out, but I do not want to put the money into postage if they're just going to get sent back.

    I really really want to participate, and am very excited about this. However I don't have the time or money to start sewing these agian from scratch, and if they're not going to be accepted as-is then I need to know up front before I send them out.

    Please let me know what the vote is. I really want to be included in this, have spent money and time to get these done...but I really don't want to be forced out for a 1/4'' error.

    Not trying to ruffle any feathers or offend anyone, I just want to be included in this. Thanks.

    Just a suggestion but can you cat the side that is 12 1/2 down to 12 1/4 and then put a border round either white or blue. Canīt think of anything else at such short notice.

    Although when this was posted I thought I'd work on it right after Christmas, by the time Christmas was over I'd completely forgotten about it. Rather than rush to get them done at this late point, I'm going to withdraw from the exchange. I thought I could pull it off, but I don't want them to not be of the quality that I'd want them to be.

    I'll be watching for future block exchanges and pay more attention when I commit to them - I really want to do an exchange but don't want to disappoint others.

    I'll still check this thread, though, to see the pics of the blocks - and hopefully completed quilts - that are posted. There are some really, really nice ones so far.

    Well Thank You for the thank yous!!!!
    I am excited about this too!!! The blocks are all so pretty!!!! I cant wait to see which ones I get and then to figure out what setting to use and what fabric to use with them!!! Its just going to be so much fun!!! I am planning on making a label with everyone's name, and where they are from on it!!! Shoot the lable might be big enough for half the backing since I sent in 2 sets of blocks! :D

    Good idea about the label Melissa. I'm going to use my 6 1/2 " stars that I made from my big star fabric and I got enough blue and white fabric for finishing it. I hope!

    Ok, my 12 blue/white sawtooth stars are in the mail (I sent them priority to assure arrival by Sat.) They are just a simple block (as I am a beginner), but I just loved the blue and white print on the fabric. It is actually my first star block. I hope you enjoy how it will show off your more complex stars. :lol: I am so looking forward to the collection coming back in the mail.

    Take care, Maribeth
