    bed runners would be a fun faster swap wouldnt it? My bedspreads are a solid cranberry and a solid white so how easy that would be to match up.. it might be harder if you have a patterned quilt to throw say a Christmas runner on it I think. A bit busy.. hum... let me think on that one..

    Jillaine, I hope you had a terrific vacation I'm still plugging away. I totally underestimated how long it was going to take me to hand quilt your quilt with the arthritis in my hands. I've been spending some much time doing the Boomerang swaps and just making blocks that it has been awhile since I actually did any quilting and it was a surprise to me. I'm pretty sure I will get it done this weekend and will be able to slip away from work on Monday to mail it off.

    :-( I wish I was a full time quilter!

    I've been quilting all day long on all my days off other than doing whatever errands need done like mowing, laundry, grocery shopping, etc

    The good thing is I'm really clearing out my DVR. I've watched the entire season of "The Following" along with tons of other stuff I recorded

    Should be done soon!

    Andrea, my partner has had eye surgery, so is a little behind. I hate that you haven't heard from your partner. Last year that happened to me, so just hang in there and Juliann will help you. I know its hard, when you are seeing all the nice quilts, it will be worth it when you get yours...

    Maybe those who havent heard from their partners can work with Jillian to perhaps swap with each other instead? so no one is left behind. I understand eye surgery can slow things down but if they are not talking its not good at all. So surely there is a solution to that mess. Ask Jillian if that is possible. its a shame when you work so hard on a quilt and then someone goes missing. I hope you have held onto yours and havent sent. Then it would be really unacceptable and those people should be given negative feedback by the host and the partner so that there is a warning flag in other swaps to not allow these people to play until they are cleared of back commitments. Just my humble opinion. I know I do it in my swaps .. its not ok to go MIA and then just waltz back in to do it again.. no way.

    You all may remember last year's swap, where I was an abandoned person. Everyone came together to specially make me a quilt (thank you!), and I will be very happy to help do the same for any of you! One good thing this year is that no quilts were sent before confirming a swap was happening. Last year I had already completed and sent my partners quilt to her, and never heard from her until months later, when she actually e-mailed me to tell me how much she was enjoying it! But she never made one for me. Hey Brat, how is the new place? All settled in yet?
    May your blessings be many, your troubles few and your fabric stash endless!

    My sweet partner loving grandma and I are staying in touch...we have both had a few delays but expect to be done very shortly and swap our quilts. You are right that communication makes all the difference. I would also be happy to add to a quilt for anyone that does not get their quilt...I have been in that situation too and it is hurtful. The quilts displayed in this swap are just beautiful.

    My partner and I have been in contact during the process just a couple of times. Last I heard from her was close to the deadline late June. She offered me extra time if I needed it but didn't say she needed extra time. She mentioned she might be traveling to FL but didn't say when. I think she will be back, it is just the waiting and luck of communication what is bad.
    thanks all for your support.

    I was in a swap last year and my partner went MIA. Come to find out she unexpectedly was put in the hospital, ever since that I let my hubby know what swaps I'm in so if something happens he can let my partners at least know what's going on.

    My partner and I are in touch with each other, just a unexcepted life crisis, eye surgery. She needs prayers from us, I would hate to loose eye sight even just a little where I couldn't do quilting. The surgery is later this month, so please keep her in your prayers. Oh, its Boop56 (Peggy)

    Oh no eye surgery is not good but maybe a good thing also? perhaps she will be able to see better than before. I will keep her in my prayers losing eye site would be beyond scary.

    I am doing well Twinrivers! I love Wyoming. It so peaceful and beautiful and well country how can one not living in the country? Its exactly what I needed. Now to get the DH working again and out of the house lol and to find a bigger place so we are not crammed in so much. This is an excellent launching point for us. Its nice to be around the horses, cows, fields and fields of hay and alfalfa and then of course the deer everywhere and the cute antelopes (they are cute) and well cowboys... sigh.. if only I was younger . ok the older ones aren't too bad either and they are so polite its sweet. If you havent come to Wyoming before I suggest a visit. Yellowstone is only an hour away.. and lakes and rivers and the buffalo bill museum in Cody.. if you like the outdoors you will LOVE Cody

    Oh twinrivers I did not realize you had send yours already. I had a similar issues but had not send mine, just sheer luck, and after some juggling and the help from the swap host I received a quilt and send mine on to quiltermomma who made lots of quilts for many people. Yes, I second do not send unless you are sure people are ready and able to finnish the swap with you.

    TwinRiver, I am just in shock that some one would have the gall to email you and tell you how much she was enjoying your quilt and she never made one for you! Now that is just wrong~ Sometimes things happen, sometimes life is tough, but there is never a reason not to stay in touch.

    I also would add to a quilt for someone who did not get one. I love love love mine! My partner, Libby made me a great quilt! The cat thinks it belongs to her though!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Well, I just decided not to fret over it, all things happen for a reason, right? And this year Elizabrat made me so happy with the beautiful Frog Pond, now proudly displayed on my loft railing! And next to it is the lovely quilt that everyone chipped in to make me last year, so I think I came out ahead when it comes down to it.
    Cats and quilts... they just kinda go together, don't they? I had to kick all 3 of mine off the current project yesterday, they were trying to get a nap in while staying close to me. Love them all though.
    May your blessings be many, your troubles few and your fabric stash endless!

    I must say that I am privileged to enjoy the ones I received last year and this year. Anna, yours sits in the family room, Linny's in the living room, Tam Moo's comes out when the air conditioner is to cold, then Whigrose's, since it is applique, hangs on the wall in its own glory. I love each one!
    Linny, your's looks so beautiful over the back of my love seat. For this weekend, I am going to be laying a couple of them over the sofa in the family room to hide the holes in the sofa for the birthday party. Want the house to look cozy as ever!

    I owe my partner an apology - a BIG one. I was looking for a picture to send to my sister and couldn't find it on my computer. I went to the camera to check - just in case - and there was the picture for her, but also, the picture of my quilt from my partner - Jane. I had taken a picture to share with everyone when it came, but never downloaded the camera. I am so sorry - guess that looks like I didn't care, but I DID!!!! Here is my beautiful quilt - just love the colors.

    No problem, Kathleen. I posted a picture when I sent it.

    I am glad you "love" your quilt, my cats were banned from it while sewing the binding on. Glad yours got to break it in all on her own. I thought my sister was going to swipe mine while she was here, but I checked her handbag before she left!

    If a quilt needs to be made for someone I volunteer to add to one also.
