    This was such a fantastic exchange to do. think we should do another, what about it girls??

    I am thinking about the centre of mine, doing something in the middle with the stars around it, however knowing me it will probably be changed again.

    I love the idea of doing another exchange! Just let me know when and what and I can see if it is in my realm of capabilities!
    I am still waiting for these stars though! And getting anxious! I have the backing material already now I need the stars so I can see how I want to sash, if I want to sash.... so many things to think about!

    I was just thinking that I was kind of sad this one was almost done. It has been so much fun from the very beginning, seeing what everyone was going to do, hearing everyones thoughts on it, then the anticipation of getting the blocks!!!
    I am game for another round!!!! :D I dont have any ideas for what block to do yet.

    YES!!!!!!! I had so much fun with this one. Already have some yellow fabric to finish it. Just need to decide how. I'm up for another one. Sounds great.

    I have been having a think about this and have come up with something along the same idea both time wise and also number of blocks.

    Do any of you fancy doing 12 flower blocks. These could be done either paper pieced, fussy cut or applique. Thinking perhaps Batiks or in the case of the fussy cut flowers an Asian type fabric.

    OR a very SIMPLE Baltimore design

    If not those then I am up for your ideas. If no one else wants to be the Organiser I am very happy to do this. However you will have to bear in mind that all you American ladies would have to post to Spain, but we have a good postal system where I live with no problems.

    All those in favour say YA. If you agree then I will start a new thread.
    Iīm excited already.

    I like the idea of the flower block. I think maybe let it be your own choice of method. pieced, paper pieced or applique, as long as it is flowers.

    I am good with you handling this Elle!!!!! I would be willing to do anything I can to HELP, I know with all the stuff I always have going on, I wouldnt want to commit to organizing and then have something pop up and not be able to carry through.

    Anyone else have any ideas??????

    I'd definately be up for another round, assuming another suitably long time scale for completion. I too like the idea of a flower block, but would be open to suggestions

    This round was a lot of fun! :-D

    Still waiting to receive my blocks though :-(

    Me too, they seem to be taking a time. Glad you are up for another though-

    thanks Melissa, we might be able to work something out there.

    Flowers sound good to me too!
    I do agree that I really like the time frame of this exchange though! It gave enough time to think and plan and complete.
    I would love to participate again!
    That would be a ya!!! from me!

    Yep, I'd be up to for also as long as it had a long time frame like the last one. I've got lots on my plate right now... I don't mind posting internationally.

    Have asked PatriceJ, if its okay to go ahead with this idea as I didnīt know the protocol of doing this.

    Meanwhile I am getting a few things together to help everyone with ideas.

    i think it would be fun - I like the flower idea as I have a few applique blocks I would like to try. So do we make 12 identical blocks using the same technique?

    Looking forward to hearing more!

    Thanks for telling me. I would love to do another exchange. Just keep me posted on 'what' it is we'll be doing. The longer time frame worked for me too...no rushing involved.

    I'll try the flower blocks. My suggestion is to have them smaller than 12". That seems pretty big to me, but I just like smaller pieces. I sure like the star blocks that I see. Good job for those who stuck with it!
