    Hi group!

    I apologize for holding things up with this swap. I am 100% responsible. As a 'thank you' to my fellow swappers for being so patient with me, I would like to give each of you a batik FQ. Plz know, though, it will add a bit of weight in your return package. Is that's okay with everyone?

    If so, please let me know your color preference ASAP so I can start cutting. I want to get everything in the mail TODAY. I'm sure you want that too. How many swappers do we have? I'll put in some surprise FQ's for those who don't let me know soon. (and I mean soon).

    Thanks again everyone!!

    Hi Jane-

    That is such a generous offer... There's 13 of us total. I'm a red/purple/gray/black kind of girl but I've yet to meet a batik that I didn't like.

    I'll check back periodically through the day for everyone's color preferences. I really want to get this in the mail today. Worst case scenerio, I'll just make some 'executive' decisions and send enough FQ's for for Traci to send out. Sound okay?

    I like purple and teal, but I really don't understand why you think you're holding us up for the swap . Really not necessary for you to go to that expense. Just letting us know that you're late is good, lots more than alot of swappers would do. So all's good with me and I'm sure your blocks will be worth the tiny bit of waiting.

    jclinganrey, I'm game for any FQ you send. I love any color of batik, they're all so beautiful! Thanks for your thoughtfulness.

    Box is open again, my apologies. Envelopes are addressed and ready to be stuffed. You'll all be pleased with the blocks coming your way.

    My reason is two-fold (pun intended. . . ) - first, I missed Tracis' deadline and second, I don't want to run the risk of being 'black-balled' from participating in future swaps. This way, I feel I'm making amends and providing for some insurance. Besides, it makes me feel good to share something we all love.

    Traci - I put my return postage inside the envelope inside the package. . . .

    Looking forward to seeing everyone's wonderful blocks!

    I was cutting it close myself so thank you I wasn't the absolute last after all. You didn't have to do that for me but ok. Anything is fine with me. I use a lot of FQ's or ends of bolts, or pieces for the charity quilts that we do through our group.

    Really excited to see what we all get back. I have some that were not quite large enough that I am going to make use of with these.

    Are we doing another one, or was this a one time. If we are any ideas for the next one.

    I am thinking of doing this one again, though may change the size and do either 8.5 or 12.5 blocks for something different, we shall see. Feel free to give me input and ideas!

    Thanks so much for hosting this swap! Would certainly like to do another one. It seems easier for me to come up with 12-1/2" (12" finished ) squares but that could just be because that's what I've done most of the time. It was challenging to do another size for this swap.

    Traci - - - I would like very much if you hosted another swap. While a 12" block is easy and there are a bazillion patterns (really - there are. I checked!) - how about you consider a size that would be just a bit of a challenge, ex: 8" x 12" ? Or 9" x 15"? Huh??? A rectangle. How about that??? Definitely not conventional. Just a thought - - -

    Sounds like my package arrived safe and sound. Looking forward to seeing everyone else's beautiful blocks!

    Are everyone's blocks in now? Just wondering if they all got there or not. Jclinganrey the only thing I have some concern about on your size suggestion is that you're going to leave alot of people out of the swap. There are some that are just learning and those sizes are not common enough to just look up a pattern and make them. Just my opinion.

    Hi ladies-

    I have all of the blocks!! I took yesterday off and the last set had gone to my office so swung by and picked them up. Will get them swapped and ready to ship on Monday! Woohoo!

    Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Gorgeous!!! Lovely work, everyone!!

    I do believe I will request to host again, but will likely stay with either 8.5" or 12.5" as it will leave the swap open to all levels (including me)... I will certainly keep the idea of an odd shape blocks for another swap.

    Thank you all for playing!!!

    I would participate if it were for good old fashioned 12.5 blocks. there are a bunch of 10" block patterns on quilterscache but so many more to chose from in the 12.5 size. I bet once the sets are posted and everyone shares their pics you will end up with more sign ups next round.

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.
