    I havent posted to the group but will do so now. my bad!

    been busy cutting fabric for my boom swap. I was wondering if any of you have Tina Givens Anabella fabric its brown with yellow roses and brown birds on it. also has lime green leaves. if you have it you know it its .. modern-ish. lol. I would love to trade some thing I have for a bit of it if you do so let me know

    I cant wait to see the rest of the quilts. This has been wonderful to play in, wonderful to watch now as we are finishing. yahoooo!!!

    Tomorrow sounds great and no it's not weird that you want to touch and feel, that's what quilts are for.

    So many of us sent our quilts out to be long-armed. I'd love to compile a list of who you send your quilts to.
    I sent mine to Charisma Horton. She did a great job. (I can't show it to you yet, because my partner and I haven't swapped yet.)

    I mailed mine today also, should arrive next Tuesday, wonder why the difference? Must be farther to go! My Partner mailed today also and I will get my quilt on Tuesday as well! Doing happy dance!

    I feel really good getting a lot of projects finished that have been on the back burner for a while! But I have very sore fingers doing a lot of binding by hand!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    I sent mine priority mail because it actually was cheaper than regular 1st class.

    I envy all of you who can hand sew binding on, my arthritis just won't let me, thankfully my longarmer puts the binding on for me. I can machine sew binding on but it isn't pretty.

    So excited to see photos of everyone's quilt, have a great week all!

    Oh I agree, the binding gets me everytime. I still have about 6 quilts to bind.

    I know how you feel, my fingers get so stiff when I bind,my arthritis also kicks in. I try and keep my fingers moving but I pay for it. I may have to have my right knee replaced soon, Dr says it gone?? Will wait & see for sure.

    oh that is not a fun surgery buddy's mom! I wonder where that knee went too? you have to keep a leash on those things I think as mine took off on me years ago several times!

    when I bind I can do about 2 to 3 hours of hand stitching then the old finger cramps kick in. Suddenly what my fingers go from just being short and stubby to.. CLAWS! like some magic act happens and they just contort into amazingly different shapes that I have to pull and stretch out to turn them back into stubby fingers! but anytime I try to machine stitch my binding down it looks fine on one side and goes on and off on the other. I hate that so its back to being the claw for me. ps love the sneak peak. all those quilted flowers how pretty can't wait to see the entire quilt.

    I can tell you I'm glad my partner and I have finished our swapping - - - we each have our quilts. Done! I'm looking forward to seeing lots of pics of others' quilts. Jane
