    Here are the three fabrics that I am sending, washed pressed and ready to cut.

    Country quilts tend to sell around me and I am left with bits and pieces from orders. I want to incorporate these blocks into a country scrappy quilt to use up the leftovers.

    Yaya-yes I was so excited to be able to do it and I truly enjoyed the rewarding feeling that it gave me. Now I just commend those who can. I made my BF (best friend not boy friend as I am married lolol) a firefighter quilt for his 40th birthday. He loved it and uses it every day. So many people were like you should hang it up or put it away and never use it. To me that is NOT what a quilt is about. It is not loved if it is not used is my opinion.
    And yes I feel so much better than I have in so long! It feels beyond amazing to feel human again and to be able to see AND feel my legs again!
    OK Darla-In order to make the groups even I did not put you in the fire group. I am so sorry. I hope this is okay with you. It was really hard balancing the groups this time around.

    Ladies you all will be helping me with a very special project-new bathroom curtains LOL. I am redoing our bathroom and have decided to go from ducks to western. So anything you want to make is great with me all I ask is you stick with the colors in the F8 I send. I am attaching a picture of my fabric...hope it inspires you all

    Moonrise I received your fabric today, and can't wait to get started.
    Yosa I have always wanted a black and white quilt but never got around to making one for ME. and I love the idea of adding a slpash of red but I wasnt sure if we could suggest color or not. I can't wait to see what you create.

    OK, FireWomen, I got my fabric mailed out today (Fri) to everyone. I was able to add an additional piece of fabric, so you should have plenty for a block. (See my previous post)

    My method of making blocks is "First In, First Out" -- I write the date I rec'd the F8 on the envelope when I get it. (And I don't waiver from that method, no matter HOW tempted I may be!) Please know that I will be on vacation the middle 2 weeks of April, so no sewing then. I'm going to Florida - WOOOHOOO!
    To QUILT is human.
    To FINISH is divine.

    Oh, I so agree with you, first in and out. I also mark mine as they come in and do them in order. Have a great time.

    LOL Yose I try to fulfill all requests from my swappers but some would say that is unfair to select groups teehee
    I received your fabric yesterday and I have the PERFECT fabric to go with it....I just have to find it in my mess of a sewing room sigh..
    Some day I will get that room together and all of my fabric organized, but not today I am sure LOL

    The person that receives the block gets to post pictures, unless they ask you to do it for them.

    I have received moonrise & Yosamitesa F8's. Spent a couple of hours last night after work looking thru my books. Think I have the patterns all figured out for each one. Now to get cutting.
