    This sound fun. I love the look of batiks but don't own any - good reason to go shopping.

    I have three of my sets done, one more to go. If I can get the time will try to do some extra but don't know if that will happen or not. Can you send me your address again not sure what I did with it. A pm will be fine with it.

    It is on Quilters Cache and I'll bet if you check it will be in the 12" section as well.

    All the same or can each bag be mixed colors.

    When you send your swap, you can also send a ziploc bag with 6 - 2 1/2" strips of one batik fabric. Send up to 6 bags per person. I'll swap and send those back with your blocks.

    How's everybody's blocks coming?

    Me too, they ended up at 10" oh well good for a charity quilt. Must have been having a brain malfunction this past week took me three trys to get one set right. Just couldn't wrap my head around the instructions for some reason and they were not hard blocks to do either.

Think I'm going to make some more just like them till I run out if one of the fabrics. So sorry y'all, you just have to wait for another batch with different pattern and fabrics.

    Guess we need to start praying to the mail guru's for everyone's to get there this week. Sure hope so we need a little more variety than just 5 of us . You did get yours done didn't you Traci?

    Four others have mailed so should be here any day, two I haven't heard from as of yet that they've mailed.

    I am finishing up my last two sets. My plan is to sort this weekend and mail on Monday.

    Glad you let her know. I hope it arrives too, we need all the variety we can get. I liked your blocks by the way, so I'll just tell you now, thanks for swapping with all of us.
