    Yosamitesa, I forgot to add that I am not opposed to doing a whole cloth It definitely will stretch my skill set!

    but you have till August, so if you used some UFO's then you would only have to spend a couple of hours a months on it, that's only about 15 - 30 minutes a week???? come on, come play with us, you know you want to

    I have been watching this thread with interest. It is getting closer to what I can do. I was looking for a partner who is on such a tight budget that they feel they can't really participate. I am a faux quilter. I can only piece and quilt by hand and the old hands are no longer cooperating. (Chemo left them numb to boot!) Applique I can do as long as it is by machine, so I guess I am classified as a topper. So I could do a top, add the batting and backing and my partner would have to do the quilting, or add borders or piecing then do the quilting.Too weird??

    I found that I have not one but three Christmas ufo's. One is red/green/cream sorry not white.. then one is aqua blue/ red/green/white more modern moda pattern I think and another that is blue/white with hints of red and green more vintage like. I am willing to make a nice quilt out of these blocks if someone is interested. I can perk them up with a lovely border and well think they will be a pretty addition to someones holiday décor lol.. ok ufo's trying a hard sell here lol. I have to get that box under control or go nuts! wait there is a Halloween set also that I could use.

    I LOVE Halloween... I am working on a quilt that will have a checkerboard in the middle, the white squares are glow in the dark fabric and the black squares will have Halloween embroidery done in glow in the dark threads....

    I'd be happy to partner up w/ Debbie. I really want to see applique up close. It's one of the things I'm interested in learning more about. Seeing the back side will help me learn more too. I also qualify in the tight budget department but a lap quilt won't be a problem.
    Debbie, I have neuropathy in my feet from chemo so I have some understanding of what you're going thru though hands would be far worse. I hope your treatment is successful and that you're doing well.
    One thing though, I'm a beginner at quilting so while I'll do my best perfection isn't going to happen. I've seen a lot of truly beautiful quilts on this board and I'm just a bit intimidated.

    Oh my gracious, do not be intimidated everyone is different, with different skills I am sure your work is fantastic!

    One thing I learned over the years "No one is going to value your work if you do not value it first!" Try not to be too hard on yourself.

    I am so excited Just got a new book on quilting for the long arm, and it has some absolutely stunning patterns in it I would love to try out Plus trying out the quilting motifs as well. It is great to be able to do something for someone new.

    No I think I might match with you but I am not sure how we would work this.

    Oops it looks like Debbie is already snatched up. If you still need me just send a PM.

    I am thinking of posting a sample block from each group of blocks I have so you can see what I am taking about on my holiday quilt sets.. is anyone interesting in seeing them? I would love for these quilt blocks to find a reason to be sewn together and made into a quilt that would be enjoyed. (ie holler if any of them speak to you!).

    Annaquilts and Applique, I'm open to whatever works best for you.
    Annaquilts, if you're a better match for Applique, that's great. I think I misunderstood Applique's intent anyway.
    Applique, if I'm correct you were looking for someone who wouldn't participate due to finances who could help you finish your quilt and be able to participate that way.
    I originally thought Applique was looking for someone who wouldn't mind receiving an unfinshed quilt. I don't mind that at all, but if helping Applique finish her quilt gets someone who wouldn't participate otherwise into the swap then I'm all for it.
    I'm going to play regardless of who I'm partnered with.
    I'm open to anything on this swap so it's whatever works best for everyone.

    Hey Brat - post those pictures! Now since you and I were partners last year, I can brag to everyone else that the quilt you made me is gorgeous, treasured and in demand around here. I had to take it OUT of my mother's suitcase before it was stolen right off the guest bed on me. This is such a fun swap, and accomodating everyone's skills, finances, whims and enthusiasm will be half the fun. Rodney - are you going to use one of your vintage machines??
    May your blessings be many, your troubles few and your fabric stash endless!

    TwinRiverFarm: Yes. They're all I own. After using them I really don't have any desire for a new one. The old ones are just too much fun. I do have a Singer Touch & Sew waiting for restoration and a Monkey Wards that's probably from the early 70s but that's as new as I want to go. I may end up using one of those for the actual quilting. My 1948 Singer 66 will get the piecing work. It only does a straight stitch but it does it quite well.
    The quilt snatching sounds like something my mother might have done. Take it for the compliment it is.

    Thanks everyone! I have signed up for the swap and think it will be a blast! I plan to do a show and tell as I go so everyone can enjoy (and comment)! Here is a quilt for the guild. The flying owl has now been stitched down and needs one more row of blocks so I can do the backing. If I can get the piecing done (I will force myself) then it should be done by Wednesday since it will only take a day to applique the back which is sitting there patiently waiting while I grumble about piecing! The penguins are waiting too but I promised to not touch them until this is done and off to be quilted. I wouldn't bet on it though....
