    Kind of sad.. I finished my partner's quilt last week and told her I could mail it Saturday and havent heard from her or Jillaine. I know it's been just a few days but I was exited about exchanging the quilts already. I guess the wait is just hard after all these months working on it.
    I love what I've seen. Any others waiting for the exchange?

    Hang in there Andrea! This is the time of year where vacations, visitors and outdoor stuff drag us all away from our computers. Who is your partner? Check her profile for recent posts, there may be a clue there. Yup, the waiting is the hardest part, but so worth it!
    May your blessings be many, your troubles few and your fabric stash endless!

    OH yes it is so worth it!

    EMC there is a new Round Robin on the quilting board starting! if your looking for something fun to do you might go check it out they are setting up groups of five and its open til the 15th of this month for sign ups. It is a bit different than a row robin as you start with a center piece that is then sent to the next person. they make a designated size round to go 'around' the center, then its passed on to another player who makes the next round and so on. In the end you have a quilt top that has been beautifully designed by the whole team. I think its a fun way to play with different fabrics and colorways without having to do a whole quilt top in each style.

    WOW, some pretty quilts. Love those patterns. I have to behave, lots to do with what I have.

    Jillaine is on vacation right now, she posted that a "few" pages ago. Just in case you needed to know. Saw someone asking earlier is all. Just FYIing.

    You sales person Elisabrat. Hey how about that Boom 10 swap going on, any takers there?

    Elisabrat...
    I have been thinking about that one, but don't want to second guess myself for a year on whether I am up to snuff or not. So... my other thought was I would have a round robin all by myself. I would make the center, but then add the rounds by drawing a "rule" for that round. I'll have a finished top when complete and maybe the confidence to join in the next time. Thanks for pointing the swap out though.

    glad you like it---not as bright as i originally thought it would be but ended up more French Provincial romantic which i think would make it very much yours and not likely to be grabbed by the hubby.

    Yosamitesa and Roseirish what beautiful quilts you have made for each other. I think I could curl up easily with either of them!

    Happy 4th of July everyone!

    I love all the quilts posted. They are so beautiful!

    Oh my, Please tell me I am not the last one finishing? I really hate missing a deadline. I am plugging away every minute I can spare but my arthritic hands and Carpal Tunnel are slowing me down. Jillaine's quilt is about 90% done with the hand quilting and then just the label/binding/washing.

    Am I really the last one? I am so sorry Jillaine. I can tell you that I really love it and hope you do too.

    Has anyone thought of doing/or has done a bed runner swap? I've seen them in magazines and it looks like a really neat way to change up your bed say for the holidays or the seasons. Plus my cats always sleep on the end of the bed and it would be easier to wash a runner than a quilt. It also would keep your feet warmer in the winter. I'd be interested in joining a swap.

    No you are not the only straggler. I am waiting on the quilt for my partner to come back from the quilter and my partner is plugging along on mine. We will get there very soon.

    I have mine done but haven't heard from my partner to mail it. So waiting here. I hope she and her family are all right. She mentioned her brother had health problems and she was going to visit him.
