    Rainy, here, so I put on a pot of Chili. Can't wait till I get my partner, already looking at patterns. But can't pick the material out until I get the Name. Neighbor and I are going to Atlanta to pick up some material..all we have here is Hancock's and Hobby Lobby (Its a 2-2/2 hr drive), but we make the trip about every 3-4 mos. Wanting to look at different material..Hope we can find a JoAnn,s..Anyone shop in Atlanta??

    Okay... with one exception (we've got an odd # of participants right now), I've identified matches, and will begin sending out PMs to you over the next 24 hours. We need to find one more person to play -- Someone who would like to make something traditional and/or scrappy and might be open to receiving a quilt with novelty prints (for example, food) and/or green fabric in it. ;-)

    I want to remind folks to re-read the opening post. For those who are repeating, there are new rules about regular contact with your partner and with me. I'll include details about this in the PMs I send out.

    Get ready... start your engines... ;-)

    While you're waiting for me to contact you, why don't the veterans from last year share here what they found most helpful in the early communications with their partner-- what helped you know what kind of quilt to make for your partner? Anyone else can chime in, too.

    Mainly I went by the colors....next the pattern...but my partner said to surprise her, so that wasn't to hard for me...I decided on the Spool Quilt using differnet colors for the spools...I think to enjoy this swap, you need to stay in touch with your partner and also on the board.

    I did two the first time around then two others, then helped on last. I must say that I have now made some great gals to talk with and enjoy sharing our quilting successes with. Only one really challenged me and that was a pastel since I do not do those very often and not a lot in my collection, it was nice to step outside my box. Would I do it again, NOT! Once was enough for me. I have truly enjoyed my quilts I received and they are all over the house. Being sure even if you pm or post once a week to your partner, it helps to know the other is working on it or at least thinking about it. Best to get started on them right away so life does not step in the way and you can't finish it on time or unable to. I know that a couple of my partners loved the chitter chatter and that is what they needed for reassurance on making the quilt.
    If you are my partner, be sure to answer question after question after question and I for one would love sneak peaks. That was the fun part to show the progression we had but did not show the last so as to not spoil the surprise. Well enough of my two cents worth. Looking forward to your pm Jillaine. Give me something to motivate me to get some things done and a direction. After finishing my 120 ufos, I feel a little lost because I don't have any new goals yet this year. Ugh!

    I've started PM'ing folks. Don't panic if they start dancing over here and you haven't received your PM yet. I just have to take a break and have dinner. More coming later.

    OH BOY was I excited to get my partner! I wrote and will wait to see what she has to say. Praying she is smiling still. Yosemitesa guess we didnt get partnered but the upside: we can now share all our secrets if our partner doesnt want to know and still keep the suprise going Nexxus I always wondered about that..

    Jillian thanks so much and I figure a ton of questions up front makes it a tiny bit easier to do. Twinriverfarm I am pleased to partner with you!

    Got my partner's name. Glad to meet you, jclingaanrey (did I spell that right). I will be sending a PM in the next day or two. I have a WONDERFUL collection of Asian fabrics, so can perhaps make you the Asian style you astericked. We'll talk over the weekend.
    Last year, what helped me most and made the process more exciting were the sneaks - just a pile of fabrics, you could see the colors, but not the pattern they were being done in - then when a row or two was done, a picture of that, a real teaser. Had lots of fun with that. Toward the end, Jillaine set up an album that we could post our finished project - and if your partner wanted to look, she could or she could avoid that thread.

    Okey dokey. I've communicated with everyone. At least I think I have.

    If you believe you've registered for this swap and you have NOT received a PM from me, send me a PM and we'll figure it out.

    We're still one shy short of an even number (and therefore have one participant without a mate), so I will take at least one more person even though we've gone over 20. Since we've got 12 days before the deadline, I'd rather try to find another participant than take advantage of those generous offers to make more than one quilt. We may need that offer later...

    Have fun, swappers!

    Nclauri, Yep you get the easy girl. I sent you a PM with some questions and requests. I also put some offers in it too. Please no one worry but I am currently in the hospital with pneumonia so if I become a little loopy it's probably all the drugs. LOL I will be fine and hopefully be able to leave by the end of the weekend. The good things is I can do planning from my bed here and I can web search the heck out of it. I have no hubby or kids bugging me. I just tell the nurses and docs that I need nothing and they love to run away. Hehehehehe.

    Nurse bonnie! You are my partner! I think you were in the first block swap I participated organized by lovingizabella. I worked 10 yrs in a Traveler Nursing Staffing company. AMN and OGP, so I admire nurses for what they do for others.

    I don't have your preferences, I am dying to know what you would like. I am very exited! Just so you know, my Engish is not perfect, So be patient with me! Please!
    :-( I wish I was a full time quilter!

    I did get a message from jillaine with some info. I have gotten to think about it more & maybe can answer more questions. I will send you a message tomorrow & give you a better idea. I understand you are going to machine quilt. I plan on the same thing also. Talk to you tomorrow. Bonnie
