    I have cut out the fabric for four blocks. It seems like the most time is the cutting out of the fabric. I want to cut a couple more then sew them all up and send them home. Does anyone else find it easier to cut a few out and then send them home?

    I do this too!!! I cut out all of the pieces, put them in little baggies and file them with the original envelope. When I have free time, I grab out the baggies and start sewing. Makes it easier and faster for me to take a night or two a week to cut and then a night or two to sew. This way has been a life saver for me this swap. Especially with little hands, I can cut and put in baggies and nothing gets misplaced.

    I usually cut out 4-5 blocks and then work on them all at once. Its just easier to have the ironing board set up to use for 4-5 instead of one at a time. Knock on wood I never get them all mixed up! I like to use a different pattern for almost every block, whatever the F8 "yells out at me" to do. Cant wait to get aerinns F8 and send her a block then just sit back and wait for the remaining blocks to come home for Christmas!

I have 52 people I am swapping with and am down to 36 more and cut out four of those and going to cut out two more today that way I will be down to 30. My goal is to have them all to there homes by December 1st. Lets pray I can do this.

    I am home! yippie~ ok maybe not Yippie, I brought home a really really bad case of the "CRUD" I have never felt this bad! you know the feeling when you think you have to feel a little better before you can even DIE!

    Well I am not doing much except coughing and WHINING~ poor hubby, he took today off to nurse me!

    While I was gone I received a grown up block from Yosamitesa, it is so cute, will post pick later. I did not get to meet nexxus her group had the crud so she was unable to meet me and then I got it, more than likely I got it from my little princess! But I hear it is making it's rounds here as well! Most of the family members in my MIL's house have it too!

    Well I am going back to bed! After I say thanks to my Secret Pal and I got one of my Christmas Ornaments! This cold has the worse case of runny nose, coughy yuck I have ever had! I think it is an invasion of the Phlegm monsters!

    Sure hope nobody here gets it!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Donna, how did that SBS quilt come out for your mother?

    I am finally getting back on track. I do have five customer quilts to get done this week so will be busy there, have the embroidery machine working hard on snowflakes for the craft show, and in between, will be working these blocks. I expect by the beginning of November I should have them all mailed.

    I did win a couple ribbons at the quilt show and the presentation went smoothly except I ran out of time, so much to say I guess because I have researched and with 57 slides and only 60 minutes, guess I should have added better right? LOL. I had lots of thank yous and good presentations so it was fine for a first time. So, I was asked to speak at the next longarm quilt retreat. Yep, going there for sure.

    Nice blocks and great chatter, will be watching closer now. I did get another grown up in the mail but I filed it and forgot who it was. If can tonight will let you know.

    Just wanted to give an update..

    To make it easier the following I have NOT received:
    - areinn
    - Lv2sew2011

    All of my F8th's have been mailed.

    I have received grown-ups from the following:
    - Abby's Mom
    - jaba (mailed yours 10/05)
    - joanelizbay (mailed yours 10/02)
    - ljdugas31 (mailed yours 10/03)
    - marytoddliz (mailed yours 10/02)
    - moonrise (mailed yours 10/03)
    - TwinRiverFarm (mailed yours 10/17)
    - Elisabrat (mailed yours 10/02)
    - urgodschild2 (mailed yours 10/22)
    - goldendog55 (mailed yours 10/22)
    - Tam...Moo (mailed yours 10/22)
    - Yosamitesa (mailed yours 10/22)
    - CharlotteMarie (mailed yours 10/22)
    -marcialee
    Thank you everyone. They are great!

    Today (10/22) I mailed grown-ups to the following:

    - AnnaQuilts
    - CharlotteMarie
    - goldendog55
    - Tam...Moo
    - urgodschild2
    - Yosamitesa

    I am working on getting out the ones I have received grown-ups from first. Abby's Mom, I am struggling with matching up fabrics for yours. I saw in an earlier post that there was some maroon in one of your other fabrics, but the tiny sample I have looks like brown, and the other sample looks more like a lite yellow than cream. Does the other fabrics have any white in them?

    Pics are in my sig. line for the ones I made and the ones I have received. (I have only loaded received ones if I have mailed back your block.) I am working on more...

    I'm glad y'all like it. I wanted to make sure that her fabric "popped" and I matched the fabric while I was quilt shop hopping across Texas.

    Ok, which one of you is going to be the tested fabric people? I think I will use someone who has a good background type of fabric and then I can add colors into it. I have to be able to add three different pieces for it to wor. This is what I get for having a daily quilting calendar.
