    Moonrise: That is a beautiful group of blocks--what a super variety! Pink Lotus---A great job of choosing blocks , You are doing a wonderful Job with the swap. Hope you are feeling much better and have good reports on your latest tests. Kudos to your husband and mother for all the help with the swapping out the blocks and getting them to the mail.

    I received my blocks yesterday. Thanks so much for finishing this up for us. I pray you will begin feeling better soon. I had Breast Cancer last year, not fun at all.
    I think I will do a couple table runner's due to the different shades of batiks.

    These 2 packages went out swapped today (7/24) are:

    - Paula J. in MO
    - Margaret H. in PA


    Mailed (7/23):

    - Ruth R. in ME
    - Jocelyn B. in NJ

    Mailed (7/19):

    - Lisa T. in GA
    - Beth N. in WA
    - Sheri R. in TX
    - Robin Lee P. in ND

    Mailed (7/18) :

    - Peggy B. in MT
    - Felicia A. in CA
    - Beverly H. in UT
    - Lynn W. in VT

    I told my husband to ship them with Delivery Confirmation, and I have those numbers if you ladies need them. He is the one handling the shipping, and being a real trooper. PLEASE POST when you receive your blocks just to make double sure you got them.

    The last 3 swapped packages are ready to be mailed. I am waiting on postage from Veronika, and Jan's and Anna's are ready for shipping tomorrow, and that is all the packages.

    I am glad everyone is liking what they are receiving. The numbers didn't work out that great at all. If you sent more than 1 set, you will get duplicates back. I am sorry about that, but as I mentioned the other day alot of people dropped out at the last minute, or never did send. Those who sent 3 or more sets we tried our best!

    Hello Margaret,

    The Del. Conf. shows that you received your blocks today (after you had posted this message). You are welcome. No one got more than one of your own blocks back in each set.

    Del. Conf. numbers show that Anna D., Margaret H., and Paula J.'s were delivered today.

    Ruth R. yours were sent Priority Mail, but for some reason they took the scenic route and went to Iowa. When I checked tracking tonight it showed that your blocks arrived at a Maine PO. Hopefully you will get them Sat.. Jan your blocks showed tracking and they were in Colorado PO making their way to Wyoming.

    Veronika, I have your blocks all packaged up and will be taking them to the PO in the morning so they can head back home to Germany.

    Thanks everyone for letting me know that your packages are arriving.

    Lightbulb For those that have doubles or many similar blocks?

    I am so happy my blocks came in! Thank you to Susan, her DH and many members in this swap for helping.

    I did get a good amount of doubles and or very similar blocks and did not get one of the ones back from one of my own sets, pink/green annaquilts. Last one in the pictures. I would love to have one of those atleast.

    If you got a double of some would you maybe consider trading for one or more? Just let me know which one you'd like. You can send one block with one to two stamps in a regular envelop. Or if you want to make some more batik blocks and swap me out some of my doubles I would really appreciate it. Just pm me.

    Anna sorry about the doubles, but there was only 15 swappers with most only sending 1 set, and 1 person sent 4 sets, and several sent 3 set, and I think only 2 set double sets. I should have done the swap up in sets of 6 instead of 12. so there would have been more patterns to mix around.

    Sheri,

    Thank you very much, and I really appericate you keeping me in your thoughts. I wanted to thank everyone for their prayers. They are comforting. I had my hubby and kids set me up a little sewing area in the dining room and my mom is cutting out some pieces for me, and I can sew here and there. I am going stir crazy, and need to sew. It also helps to pass the time while I am waiting on results. I just didn't have the engery or breath to climb up and down the basement stairs to get to my sewing machine.

    Hope everyone is having a good weekend and that everyone is doing good!

    Hugs,
    Susan/PinkLotus

    Susan no worries. I am very happy to have the blocks back. I am just hoping some one will be willing to swap a couple out if they have doubles or want to have more variety by making some more. Looking for a win, win. I was planning to use all in one quilt for a special friend and there are mostly too many of the same color way and or pattern. Anyone ?

    Got blocks back today. Annaquilts and everyone....I will post what I received in my album soon. I got several of 3 and 4 of the same block, which some of you may not have gotten, more than willing to send back and forth to try for a little more variety. Also only got 2 back of mine instead of 4, if someone got 2 of 1 I'd love 1 back. Didn't think about making an extra, should have because now I don't have the material. Anna I only got 1 of your blocks and not the 1 you're looking for sorry. Anyway will try to get them posted later today and if anyone wants any my duplicates let me know. I'm glad they were mailed and returned.

    Jan, as Anna had suggested in a PM, you can try the trading post. With you sending in 48 blocks (4 sets) the best was done considering there was only 15 swappers. Sorry I couldn't help it that we didn't get more, and that the ones who had to drop out did. I thought when I doubled checked yours that you had received one of your blocks from each set that you sent in. If not I am sorry...
