    I am Ok to wait a little while longer. I would like a good variety and have something from everyone so if you do decide to swap please mix mine in. I like to get a variety back and none of my own. I made extras so I already have my own blocks here.
    Whatever you decide on waiting or swapping, I am good. Does the tracking number say what it is doing?

    I think Traci is just waiting on 1 set of 6, the others have already been sent and received. I have a partner that has been waiting for 10 days for a doll quilt. It's been mailed to her town in IL, back to WY and back and forth again. Guess it's just traveling the USA. Anna you always get 1 of your own back in this swap, makes it easier for everyone to get more of a variety and easier for Traci to sort.

    I'm fine with whatever you need to do. I'm in no rush whatsoever.

    Thanks jaba! Hmmm yes sometimes it takes the grand tour and travels around. I have plenty to do so I am fine waiting. Duhhh it says in the rules one will come back. Well I'll be set and have some extra. I sometimes wonder where my head is when I read the rules.

    No extra's, you've got a head start! I usually make throw pillows or pillow covers to match the quilt. Change the quilt, change the covers tada!! Adds a little bit more if you're making it for a gift too. Works for me, then I don't have all these UFO blocks in a drawer.

    Looking forward to getting them and putting the quilt together. I love the last one, it's done except the hand binding sewing. Seems I can always put that off, too hot in the summer with this big quilt draped over my legs. Haven't had those hot flashes in a while, but if it covers my legs they seem to come back again real quick....fall project I think

    With this swap wrapped up (pending deliveries), I will be stepping back a bit from the board for a while. I'm having some health issues that have contributed to me not completing commitments and such, on the board and in my world at home. I will still be here if anyone needs anything and hope to host again in the future.

    For those I still 'owe'... You're on my list to complete before I take on anything more.

    Be well and God bless.

    Tracibug, thank-you for all you have done for the board. You will be missed, but it's more important to take care of your health. I hope it's something you can get back to you love of quilting activities with rest and less stress. Take care and God bless!

    I received my blocks and twists. Thank you ladies. As I am typing one of my teens is laying out all the blocks. It looks like a wonderful variety of prints and patterns of well made blocks. They all seem to play together well and not a single one double. I guess less people ended up doing the stwist so there were 3 sets of triples and one of my own but it will work out great and it is just in time for me to make some totes and such with the 2 1/2 inch strips. Since it is such a small project, a tote, I doubt I will have many if any repeats of strips and I am glad to have strips ready to go. Christmas will be here before I know it. Great swap! Thank you to all participants and special thanks to tracibug. I wish you well tracibug and hope you will be well soon.

    I got mine today.....nice end of a day. WOW they are all beautiful. 36 blocks and 10 pks of the twist strips. I love it. I think I make 2 smaller quilts with them.

    Now to decide on what I want to sash them with. I am thinking of a dark blue or purple....Will be going to the batik store on Friday.
