Some grownup really pretty blocks from CharlotteMarie, Chewboo and Annaquilts, and an f8 from marcialee (I just love your fabric, but I don't think your neice will, so just send the finished quilt to me, ok?)! Thank you to all who sent back extra fabric, I will use it !
    Any word on April and how she is doing?
    May your blessings be many, your troubles few and your fabric stash endless!

    I haven't heard anything but I am hoping she is resting up to get over what's wrong. We need to do something for her, lets send her a heart block. One from each of us to show her we care. What do you think? And of course the card as well.

We found another place also just around the corner but I can't remember the name of it. I think it is Fabric Warehouse Fashions, but not 100% sure. I know it is just down the street from Juan Pollo's (we had lunch there for $5.00) have to save all the money for shopping ya know! And our last stop was at Joann's, but I was good only bought some batting that was on sale!

    update Saturday

    Quiltermomma where are you? Still making tomato soup? Let us know how you do at the fair okay? Received a F8 from marcialee today and received blocks back from Elisabrat in the rubies group....envelope addressed as 2012 Potato Queen, you are a little devil, my post mistress asked what the hell is this, I told her it was a private little joke. She just nodded her head laughed and asked if I had any extra, then live and in person my own little piece of blueberry pie. It is so awesome all paper pieced ( which I can not do worth a dittley damn) and then another amazing little bee ready to bit the living h out of me. I really need you to come to Cody...well Ralston, Wy. and show me how to do this on my embroidery machine marytoddliz. I love it and want to learn so badly I can hardly stand it!!
    I had to play with oldcatladies fabric today, I love love love it and sewed till I used every little piece I could use, so both groups am sending you home 3 blocks, then I looked for a pattern for urgodschild2 and think I found something that really shows off your fabric, so it will be coming also. Savannarandon yours is cut and 1/2 way sewn so will be sending out on Monday also.Name:  DSCF0827.JPG

    I am so glad you like Mr. Bee... He is so cute~ I wanted to put the berries in a bowl but couldn't figure out how to do that and include Mr. Bee... I am still working on the rest of your fabric when I have free time!

    So we have a Queen among our group of Diamonds! I had no idea! OK I will send a heart block to our fearless leader. What size were you thinking? Or perhaps a Wonky quilt?

    I received two awesome blocks today one from Chewboo a very pretty Christmas block and the other from Ssnare a School house block! I love it! You know I sent out random pieces of fabric, some Christmas flora, some Christmas doves and some bees and Apples for a friend who is a retired teacher and having health issues. I have received back a lot of blocks, but only 2 of the School one.... So that tells me that it is a lot easier to make a Christmas block than any other... or not
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    So you're going to hand deliver me a block so you can teach me how to do this on my machine????? I have lots of extra room, I do cook pretty good, and am more than willing to buy your favorite beverage of choice. Don't know why but I'm guessing you might like wine....not a problem. Give me a heads up though as I've got to order all kinds of thread so we'll have all the colors you need. I really am down on bended knee here, please let me get upright soon.

I think I will get our Anastasia to figue it out for me then come to my house to teach me in person. now that my dear ladies it a real idea. She learns super fast. Get her to learn it then come teach you! wait til I tell her I have a new job.. oh wait, there is also Kelly she is a quick learner but she has a little one.... well maybe KELLY? WHERE ARE YOU? I finished a block for Fraew today. For somereason it was simple was what I wanted and this time I just stalled on it. stared at it for two days.. two seams take a break, one seam.. every have those sewing days? I found out I have two of the five missing fabrics.. so phew. tomrrow will go through each one again and see if I can dwindle that down more.

    Ever have one of those sewing decades? That's how I get UFOs!!!

    I received marcialee's F8 today. Sorry...putting that beauty in my stash and replacing it with something else. Did my F8 make its way to you?

    And...I received this beauty from Chewboo:

    BTW - Loving this swap!

    Cool Updated list

    grown up blocks received from-
    ljdugas31-lovely star block with deep dark blues and brown floral. Very cute!
    joanelizbay- not 1, not 2 but 3 amazing blocks in delightful colors and patterns! That was very kind and generous of you.
    urgodschild- such a fun block with many beautiful fabrics
    moonrise- Stunning Ohio Star in Patriotic colors
    TwinRiversFarm-Beautiful Patriotic colors Christmas Star
    Roseysue-Gorgeous soft yelow colored block

    Thank you ladies! I am off to a good start and overwhelmed with the beautiful blocks.
    These swap blocks will make some stunning quilts. I hope to post pictures soon, like this week.


    There is still plenty of time but I wanted those to know incase they did send a F8 out and I did not receive it yet.

    1000projects
    areinn
    lovingizabella- side swap
    Luv2sew2011
    quiltingmommy-side swap


    I did receive F8 today from-

    daisey
    marcialee


    If you send them out already hopefully they'll come in soon and I will let you know.

    All my F8s went out 8/25. If you did not recieve my F8 yet please let me know. I was not able to keep track of everyone if they received it or not.

    I think all of the patterns I used came from online. If anyone wants to know where to find a pattern that I made a block from just ask me.

    Hi y'all! I think that any size heart block will be fine, sort of a sampler for April. Big, little, wonky, whatever-fits-your- mood sizes. Just include a note of support and/or sign it. If she wants us to put it together later on we can, but I know that sewing and quilting help her cope with everything she goes through, so she may enjoy playing with the blocks herself.
    The temps here finally are below 90, I'm heading for the kayak today!
    May your blessings be many, your troubles few and your fabric stash endless!

    ok I am back a few slashes, are we making heart blocks to send to april and if so are there any conceptual sizes/colors please. I can whip one up today and who do i send it to? April? or to you twinrivers or charlotte marie in rubies? sign me up for one. Never done a heart before but can I do a basket with flowers and hearts? have a pattern for this I think. applique.

    I wish everyone a grand sewing day. I am hoping to do at least two blocks, one wall hanging and well a heart and a bunch of strawberry jam which I am off to do right now. Gotta love that smell of warm cooking jam.. hows about coffee/tea and muffins and jam? say 9 or 9:30 a.m. would be fine, come on over. gotta run or we will be wishing for jam not eating it.

    I like the scrappy heart block charlottemarie and I think April will too. The last time we all made orange blocks and sent her...she loved them and made her self a giant orange hug quilt! She faces a lot of difficulties with her health and Izabella's issues but she always comes back to us stronger then before! So..if we just keep praying for her and sending her our love offerings...she will be ok!

    Yep, having one of those sewing days! I just can not get the hang of PP. I did a pretty block for moonrise and it is 12 1/4" and not quite as flat as I would like. I don't understand the scant 1/4" thing w/ PP, isn't that the point - you sew on the lines so you don't have to make sure you are exactly 1/4"??? I'm off to make a second block for her. I will include both in case you can make the 1st one work or make a pillow or something out of it.

    I want to try to work outside some today since it is FINALLY cool enough for me - 60's. I LOVE Fall! Later I can come back in and have some hot tea and some of elisabrat's strawberry jam and muffins - awwww

    Frustrating!!! Ask me how I know.

    I found that I was off about 1/8" when I had to piece multiple units so I started increasing my patterns by .1" and voila! Problem solved. If your finished block is about 1/4" off, maybe try increasing your printed pattern by 1/4" if you have to piece multiple units.

    they really do look good together, I see you sent a lot of different b/w/lime out and it is all working. I agree, lots of beautiful blocks that match up great.
