    I am so proud of this little group. A perfect month of swapping,,,,,again. Three cheers for us all! I have been busy in my sewing room working on a commissioned quilt and a baby quilt. Not a 2.5 in either one!! But I did take on my mountain of UFO's when I needed a break from the commissioned quilt. Finished one that was buried under a a pile of other projects. Only needed a binding and now it i done. It is the Valentine Mystery Quilt from Scrap Quilt Enthusiasts. It made a small dent into my 2.5's. Tee-Hee-Hee. I discovered that that in the past few months is that I have become a collector but not a user. Time to make something with these even if it is just a random postage stamp quilt(s) to pare down the boxes of 2.5s.

    Watch for a PM from me later today with our June Birthday's, We have three again and one is early in the month.

    Cute hearts quilt, WMU. I am a member of that group too, but I somehow missed that quilt.

    Sewbiz, I just checked and the pattern for the Valentine Mystery Quilt is still in the "files" list. Really easy to complete. I joined the group because of a post you made perhaps in the fall? I can't remember for sure. I would recommend the group for ideas and encouragement for all kinds of scrappy quilts.

    Here is a suggestion from Scrap Quilt Enthusiasts FB Group. I liked how this quilter sprinkled in novelty prints with consistent background color. I asked permission to post here. She said YES! I am thinking this would make a good children's quilt or for a donation quilt.

    I'm loving the heart quilt WMUTeach! Also the block was a great idea for candies. Thanks for sharing that. I agree, I'm a collector and not a user. I'll have to do better with that.

    Your private mailbox is full so I'm sending this here:

    Back in 2019 Barbara spelled kele's last name: Branstetter
    You have spelled it: Bransettler
    Do you know what is the correct spelling?

    on the topic of spelling - I found it amusing that half the envelopes came to "Dalle" and the other half came to "Dale" . The later is correct, but they all got here just fine.

    I have received a message from our June swapper and the correct spelling of the last name is Branstetter. My apologizes.

    I have also requested that post #476 be removed because it reveals personal information and there are just too many smart but creepy folks lurking on our site trying to lure us into sharing information about ourselves and tricking us into scams or unexpected websites. Everyone take care and again I apologize for the error.

    Post 467? If it isn't too late, maybe Jennr8r can edit it to remove the name?
