    Oh, I wish I had seen this swap when it first started. I love batiks and would love to have participated. I need to remember to check the "Swaps" forum more often. The blocks I've seen so far are wonderful! Hope someone will host another swap and I can participate.

    Mine was mailed today, should have them Wednesday or Thursday, will check the tracking when I get home and see what it says. I printed it from home and took to the PO at lunch. you are getting a medium flat rate box, has your table runner in there too.

    I had fun making these, the pinwheels were a mistake they were suppose to look like the pink and black block so I got one I wasn't planning. LOL

    oh oh I have a great idea for all you swappers, I have just started my fall/halloween table runner swap. I know Tracibug is dying to join! ok you might have some blocks coming in wondering what to do.. imagine three or four put in a runner to go with the FALL or Halloween theme.. just saying what a marvelous use of some of your blocks... hum hum hum.. shameless plug.

    Traci! ring me up! sent you my new number pretty sure I did. waiting... waiting.. you can talk while building furniture. promise!

    I tried you on Tuesday, will try again soon. :-)

    Traci can we have an update? Just wondering if you have them sorted and if they'll be on the return trip home tomorrow.

    2 packages are en route but not here yet... Bear with me, it will be worth the wait! Such pretties. I will try to take pics and post so you can see what you're anticipating.

    Any ideas of what batik swap should be next? More blocks? Table runner/wall quilt? Bag/purse? Chickens?

    Cindy-

    There's a few of us that have a thing for chickens... and at some point, I'd like to do a batik chicken quilt.

    I am not into the chickens, but I understand. I am into snowmen and hummingbirds. but that doesn't mean I wouldn't sign up for the chicken swap.......might be fun.

    Traci, those wall hangings are cute for someone, just not me. I do like the idea of a picture wall hanging made from batiks ..... I'm thinking of making a winter-themed one (Christmas, snowman, or snow theme) for me. I'm putting different sizes of blocks together for a quilt when blocks are received.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Waiting on one last package and will get to sorting... my kids get back home tomorrow but the packages should be heading back your way by Monday at the latest. Roughly 70 sets to sort through... Phew, nicely done ladies!!

    I'm leading towards a batik only table runner/wall quilt, with a twist of 10" squares so put your thinking caps on.

    great idea traci ! I like the idea of either a batik only table runner or wall quilt where we can choose our own theme. Hope you get other for this idea.

    I would love a swap where we use either thangles or Laundry Basket Quilts paper and do HSTs with a light and dark in each. Any size squares ok with me.

    Hi Katie-

    We have to be careful with the swaps so they do not require the purchase of anything, but I will check some options. Thank you for the ideas.

    Two things...

    Last parcel is MIA and was a partial ship (1 set of the 6 she wanted to send) due to family illness. Anyone who is ok waiting for the others to come, please PM me, else I will start the sorting so you can get to creating a masterpiece!


    And two... there is a 'Not your mamm's hot pad swap' taking sign-ups thru 8/20. I know I can envision batiks on my table!! Go sign-up, she'd love to have you!

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/member-...p-t227578.html

    Hugs and prayers to everyone... it sure seems like there is struggle and illness surrounding us all right now.

    Hopefully MIA package will arrive soon. At least she was able to send 1 set out of the 6. Send when you can. I am in no hurry right now, lot on the plate with other stuff.
