    Judith -- loving the heart, the fabric "flows" so well into each block! Perfect choice!

    PamelaOry - so hoping I get one of your embroidered blocks!I don't have that type of machine so it's fun to see what you can create!

    This was the block I worked on this weekend, after this and the basket I might want to find a pattern without triangles! The two pieced parts of the block are called West Wind.

    IrishMom, love the block you chose. I Love triangle blocks. I am working on a mini right now that is at least all 1.5 half square triangle blocks. That is such a sweet flag print in the corners of the block. You have a really interesting stash.

    The next block I have ready is the Ohio Star.



    Only one more set to finish piecing. I am having so much fun.

    IrishMom, when is your surgery? Are you piecing blocks while recovering? Be safe, be careful.

    Love love the polka dots!!

    Thanks for asking about my surgery -- it was a week ago. I'm waiting for everything to heal before I can get a new prescription --so far away things give me a headache. But near things, like reading and quilting, are fine. So the quilting has been a wonderful activity to do.

    I'm watching this swap, cheering you all on, but won't be joining in. I have a RWB Sylvia Bridal Sampler in the works (slow going! 6" blocks are more of a challenge than I originally thought!), and I just ordered Eleanor Burns "Victory Quilts" book and a fat quarter pack of '30's/ patriotic fabrics for it. I love RWB American quilts!

    I love all the blocks posted here so far! Hopefully you have a good sign up group, Judith! For anyone on the fence, Judith hosts great swaps and keeps them fun.

    Quick question. Are any of these fabrics not okay to use in the r/w/b blocks? I would like to use the red & white pin stripes and the chevron pattern in a couple of blocks. I think the third fabric is a little too pink.

    Hi Queenbarbie,

    I think the Chevron and stripes are awesome. I agree with the bottom one maybe being a bit too pink.

    My next block is a diamond star. The middle doesn’t look as dark in real life.

    Hi All. Not sure I understand the swap completely. (By the way, All the blocks are awesome).

    - If I only send a set of 4 blocks, does that mean I only get 4 blocks in return?
    - Do all of my blocks need to be the same?
    - Not understanding return postage requirements. (It is way-y-y-y past my bedtime of O'dark o'clock).

    I am thinking I'd love to join in, but just not 100% sure of the requirements. I've never swapped before.

    Thanks for your patience.

    Hello Anita,

    The block sets are sets of 4. I'm not being really strict on the block sets this time as the swap has not grown. So, basically, that means for every 12.5 unfinished block you send me, I will swap out and send 1 to you. So, if you send me 4 blocks, you get back 4 blocks. If you send me 8, you receive 8 back. (Maximum allowed to send is 20 blocks.) Please mark the blocks with your board name so I don't mess up and send you your own blocks back.

    Usually when I send my block sets (I make sets of 4, it's just easier for me to keep track of them. You can use different fabrics if you want in each set. Or make different blocks, whatever you want to do. I will swap them out, as long as they are the right size and appropriate for the swap.)

    But, anyway, mailing. I address everything. The envelope I'm going to send them in and the return envelope to me. I put the blocks in the envelope with my address written on a paper inside. I do not seal that envelope yet. I have the post office weigh it this way. Then I put the envelope that is addressed back to me with the return postage on it, in the envelope with the blocks. I seal it up. And, then they weigh it again and you pay for the postage to send it to me. Do not use metered mail. Metered mail expires. I use regular stamps.

    Let me know if this wasn't clear, And, I will try to explain again.

    For postage I use the 8.00 flat rate mailers you can get from the post office for free. You have to order them online but they deliver them to your house for free too. That way, no matter what they weigh or where you are sending in the US, they are $8. It’s the padded flat rate envelope EP14PE. 9.5 x 12.5
