    Working on set 6 and then out the door. Wonderful! One more thing to scratch off my to-do list.

    I am ready to ship but need the address. Also I am having a hard time getting it in the envelop. I did finally get it in a gallon bag so maybe I just need to do some more folding.

    TWIST 6 strips 2 1/2 in. to a baggie up to 10 baggies

    createfourpaws You are right. I found the original post. thank you for pointing that out. I am going to cut strips this afternoon if I have enough WOW fabric. Most of my fabric is FQs.

    Oooh yeah... and if anyone is interested in swapping batik 2.5" strips send me a note... then put 6 strips in a bag and send those with your blocks. I will swap those out as well, up to ten bags.

    Hi, all! Someone asked about this block. It is a lemoyne star, done with Deb Tucker's Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star ruler. The ruler was a little pricey but well worth the money. There was a quilt on the cover of Fons & Porter last year and I bought the ruler at Houston in October. The ruler is absolutely foolproof and makes sizes from 4 or 5 inches up to this 12.5 unfinished so is very versatile.

    Strips are ready, I used two 2 1/2 inch rolls and some WOW cuts to make 60 strips. Now did anyone get 6 sets of swap blocks and 10 twist strip baggies in one letter sized envelop? I am going to sleep on that one. Maybe a legal size envelop and some extra return postage for tracibug?

    Just remember, the envelope does not have to be flat, it just needs to close but be sure to tape it well. I use the padded envelopes and can get ALOT in them so there is no need to send extra postage over the $5.95.

    I am sorry but I will have to drop out of this one, have had some family stuff that has taken up my time. I hope that I can do the next one if there is another one. Again my apologies to you all.

    4 sets done, 5th one cut, at sewing machine. will have them done to mail out hopefully tomorrow, along with the strips.

    need to finish the binding on a customer t-shirt quilt also. Now only have to hand sew it down so I can deliver next weekend.

    Have my 6 sets of blocks ready to mail.
    Not sure about the strips...are they to be 6 strips alike in each package or 6 different strips in each package?

    Not quite settled yet but am making progress... We've run in to a few complications with getting furniture moved but I spent most of Saturday building the furniture for my sewing room.

    I'll post pics soon and am looking forward to destressing and playing with my fabric again!!

    Traci..........I know you are ready for playing with your fabric once again. It will happen very soon.

    I should be mailing out this week, just have 1 more set to finish and cut the strips.

    Now we want each strip a different one in each set correct?

    Yes, each set should have 6 different strips, but the sets can be the same or different, you can pick.


    Looking forward to seeing all the blocks, they're all so pretty!!

    Hope to get to the post office tomorrow. The work address from January is still correct - right?
    Have all 6 sets done and even all 10 twists. This has really been fun! Can't wait to see all the pretty blocks and strips.

    I need your address, Traci. I sent PM to you but have not received a reply. I still would like to swap but looks like time is running out.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!
