    Thanks so much, I adjusted my needle placement to get a scant quarter inch seam and cut the squares between a quarter inch and 1/2" oversize. Seems to be working out better. This has to work, I am getting so frustrated!

    Persevere, my fellow quilt buddy. Once you get your first 8 1/2" quilt block, it's all downhill from there. We're cheering you on!!!

    You'd be surprised how those few tiny adjustments will make a huge difference. Hang in there!

    Sunrise450. I also add a 1/4 inch to my D4P's, and use scant. It gives me some playing room. Also starching your fabric good helps in cutting and stretching.

    I just mailed my swap to Jane. When I gave my package to the lady in the post office she wouldn't let me send a self addressed return envelope. She told me and showed me the notice that this was no longer allowed! So I sent $6 in cash.
    I hope that this is okay. The expected delivery is this Thursday.

    That's fine but I never heard of such a thing.

    Isn't it funny how PO's around the country handle things differently??? Strange - - - Oh well - won't keep us from having our fun!

    In case anyone is interested, I posted the sign up for the June Chocolate Covered Cherries Argyle D4P.

    Also, FYI - - I've shared some ideas with a few QBers for possible future blocks swaps. Toss them. Delete them. Throw them away. After the July Batik D4P swap, I'm shifting gears and will be offering scrappy block swaps. I hope you decide to join in the fun!

    I finished the swapping and, as with all smaller swaps, there was some duplication and you may be getting some of your own blocks back.

    I appreciate everyone's efforts. The blocks are beautiful and you all did a great job!

    Off to the PO!

    No worries it is all good for me. I just can't wait to get them. I may look into CW quilt patterns. I really enjoyed learning about the fabric and the quilts because of this swap, so thank you so much for that also Jane!

    I sent a box containing three month's worth of blocks and three self addresses stamped envelopes.

    So glad you like them. I appreciate knowing when each of you receive your package in case there are any PO problems.

    Finally got to the post office and picked up my package. Thank you ladies for the wonderful blocks. They look so great and hope I can get to them soon to make a little quilt from them. Again thank you for your talent and time.
