    I will post pics of all of the blocks soon. My phone decided I have stored enough pictures and won't let me take any more... Whatever, 2500 pictures is not TOO many!! So now I need to go buy a phone with larger storage to solve my photo hoarding problem. Could be worse... tehe

    12.5 I have a whole bunch of patterns collected already, we did a bunch for donation quilts in our group. If you would like ideas we could do a monthly block or random whatever anyone wants to do.

    Traci - does you phone have the option of an SD card for additional storage? I know my Nook does.

    Sadly, no... I have one of those nifty, but proprietary iPhones. Boo... They work well for some things and horrible for others.

    Ok... I am at least back online. The blocks went out and should be delivered at the latest (east coast) on Friday. If you don't have it by Sat, let me know and we will track them down! :-)

    Thank you again, everyone, for playing... There should be an FQ from Jane and a little goodie from me.

    And a special thank you to the ladies that sent me goodies, such a pleasant surprise and much appreciated.

    Keep an eye out, I'll be posting for the next one soon.

    Good point, Jaba. So, taking that into consideration, I would vote for an 8" finished block.

    Someone posted how to do this on the board last week and I can't find it now to pass on to you. It's another little step you have to put in. Maybe send a PM to Patrice and ask her or any moderator. They should be able to tell you hopefully, just a thought. Excited to see what is coming, have been working on some of the boom blocks so I can start getting the quilt put together. The setting strips anyway all sewed on so at least that's done.

    quite a variety shown in your picture, Bbemerald! I wonder why I got 4 of my own blocks ... especially when I sent in 3 sets. I am looking forward to making a special quilt now.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    I got mine back too. If you want to swap on the side, I'm game!

    Nice looking blocks, I haven't gotten mine back yet so don't know the variety but will let you know and see if you're interested.

    Everyone should have received one block from each of their sets, my apologies, I will be sure to add that to any future swap.

    MaryMo- I apologize for my error, I had my DH assist me and that might have been about the time he said he didn't think I really needed help anymore. Lol if you'd like to swap another, I will pay the postage.

    I'll be using them in a lap-sized quilt where it won't matter. I'm using additional blocks that were experiments when I was making these blocks. It will be a fun quilt with lots of dandy offbeats. My comment was just a wonder, not meant to be offending.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Tracy & all - Got my blocks Weds - it was really so much fun to open the package. They were all beautiful! I ended up rushing to send mine in and completely missed the opportunity to add my real name and address and the block name, but I'll remember next time. It was fun to see the distance some of the blocks had traveled! If you host another swap, I'll definitely be in. Thanks again to everyone. Karin

    Hopefully mine get here soon. Sometimes Alaska takes a few more days even with priority mail. Will let you know when I get them.

    Got mine today and love them, thanks all of you so much and thank you Traci for hosting and for the hand cream. Also much appreciated a beautiful FQ of lavender batik. Not letting me load pics again, sorry had them all on the design wall and they were terrific but are in an album in my signature if you want to look.

    update

    Now it's posting again, weird, it's sideways but you can see the beautiful blocks. Started working on them tonight and setting them with a dark gray. Will post again when I get it all together. And thank you ladies, the majority of the blocks are actually the right size, absolutely wonderful makes it so much easier to put together. That's what I get for being a lazy one, but great job and not 1 duplicate. I did get back 1 of each of my sets that I sent in, which we were suppose to, so thanks Traci

    Jaba- the wall looks great!!

    Glad everyone likes their blocks. I'm debating a June or July due date for the next one (I will be moving some time in June and going back to Wi/Mn the last weekend in June) but the sets will be for 12.5" blocks, all batiks again.

    Thought I had posted that I got mine, and I'm having so much fun playing with them! Thanks for the thoughtful gifts too. And so glad you're planning to do another one. Will keep an eye out.
