    I ordered mine online also, ordered priority flat rate padded tyvek envelopes with postage prepaid. They came 10 to a bundle. I thought Jane had said she wanted padded envelopes so that's why I ordered them, the regular ones were cheaper, guess I'll know they are alright next time I have to order some. Our "little rural" post office has no way of stamping them prepaid, I was told, so had to order them. I didn't have any labels to print the postage, all out and the PO had them on back order from the web site. Anyway still cheaper than the old way.
    I didn't label each baggie with all your names on them, just mine and the instructions that I would like, but I will label each one when I send them back. Has everyone mailed yet or about ready to mail?

    I mail mine from the town I work in...NOT the town I live in because they always always are cheaper than the "bigger" place I live. It was a tight fit to get all 15 in the cardboard but they fit and they sold me a stamped, undated envelope that I put in there also so either way I think is great! Might have to go to the legal size sending the completed blocks back though and I think they will be thicker than the F8's?

    "they always always are cheaper than the "bigger" place I live."

    Yea..know what you mean!! When I went to mail Gaijin's finished block in our last swap, Monroe tried to charge me $14.00 to send it! I took it back home with me and went to a little post office in the next county and they sent it for $2.05. Bet you can't guess where I go to do my mailing now! Ladies, it pays to shop around. I told the guy in Monroe that I know they're having problems but they're not going to make it up off me. I still can't believe the difference that 20 miles made in the price.

    Being snowed in has its advantages! I took the extra F8 I had and made a couple of practice blocks out of it. I really like the "orange" with the fabric but not sure how manly it looks...Cant wait to see what you all come up with!!

    Orange looks great! I think it's manly. Have to show you what my husband made for me. Told him I wanted a quilt rack that didn't take up floor space and between the 2 of us here's the result. Think he's going to make a couple of more and I'm going to see if I can display them in the quilt shops here for sale. I love these on my wall to display quilts. Name:  DSCF1737.JPG

    Jan, I found a quilt-rack lady at our last guild show and ordered an 8-arm one and 2 4-arm ones. I have the 8-arm upstairs, one of the 4-arms downstairs to hold tops & backing waiting to go on The Six and then the other 4-arm is a gift for a friend.

    Out of curiosity, how much did it cost you in materials?

    Jan, I love that rack!! I have a single rack in my living room but it just holds one. I like the idea of being able to move them so they all show. My house is so small that I don't think I have wall space for even one of those to hang. Ive given my kids so many quilts maybe I need one for THEIR house! LOL Its beautiful..

    I would be in line to buy one!! What a wonderful idea. I have 2 floor style quilt racks and they are always full. They have to be moved out of the way all the time, though. I like that idea! Waiting anxiously for the package to arrive so I can get started. Kind of hope it is after Christmas, just cause I am so far behind already!! LOL

    Amazing the differnce one day can make. I was puttering around my sewing room looking for a few more fat 1/8'ths for the swap. I received a call that my good friend and x brother in law of 30 years had fallen trying to help fix a friend's ceiling fan. His friends wern't home at the time and when the poor wife returned home she found Dewy knocked out on the floor. He was rushed to the hospital and placed on life support for a brain bleed. My four nephews were in agreement that their Dad would not want to live like that, papers were drawn up to remove life support and he passed quietly at 10:30 PM. Trying to change flights for 2 of my children who were coming home for Christmas and find a hotel or motel for our 13 family members when I don't have a definite date of the funeral yet. Will finish wrapping my fabric up and mail it before I leave.

    Oh, terriamn, I'm so sorry! Seems there are always losses at Christmas . I'm sure your nephews did what they knew their dad wanted. They are brave and compassionate. Prayers for all.
    Jan, those racks are gorgeous! Maybe your dh could advertise on the qb. We know there are a lot of quilters here! Lol. I wonder how he would go about it. Oh, patricccccccccce!
    i'm not sure how i will post pics in the gallery since everyone will have something different. I am cutting fq's, and what a surprize, they are not the right size so I'm ending up with a fat 1/10 th ish. So I will use that to make a pieced border and incorporate all the fabrics. Everything is getting smaller these days, but me! Lol well, more cutting and ironing and less chatter from me!
    joanelizbay, those blocks are beautiful. Men appreciate beauty, too! Afterall, they love us!

    Terri, I'm so sorry to hear this news. My thoughts and prayers will be for you and your family. I know how hard this is at this time of the year. I lost my mother on Dec.23rd. several years ago. Hang in, Friend.

    Nancia I tried to post them for sale but Patrice said no, I did ask her why but she hasn't answered me yet. I don't see any difference between the quilt hanger and people selling fabric by the bolt...must be something. He is going to sell them so they are available.
    Terri, my thoughts are with you and your family, hard thing to go through. Comfort and time...

    sure don't understand why you cant list them for sale. They have a LOT of items for sale off the home page, fabric, machine parts, etc. Wish I had room for one but the only "corner" I have in my house without a door next to it has my curio cabinet in it...I hope you can find a place to list them because he did an excellent job! Maybe a local quilt shop?

    That's okay I just thought it might be a nice item for quilter's so they had a choice. The local quilt shop would like us to bring one in so their customers can see them. If a few sell that's okay too, I just like them for me and showed all of you a pic so I could share the idea.

    They are a wonderful item for small areas in particular. And I like the ease with which you could change the quilts for display. Nice!

    Changing those quilts out....that's the part I love about them. So easy to do and I can display more of them instead of just one on the edge of a couch. Sorry you're not swapping with us Janice, if you want to do a side swap of just a few let us know, I would send you a squishy...

    They are fussy what they let on here, I guess I can see it sometimes. LOL Anyway, there is no better advertisement than word of mouth and that will get to the ones that want them. I am getting one the first of the year!! Can't wait.
    So sorry to hear of the loss of XBIL! Those brain bleeds come so fast and without any warning at all! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas in spite of the loss.
