    sustraley I think they are all different, shouldn't be but they are. Guess it's who's behind the counter. I paid 85 cents for all mine except Canada, that was $1 something if it was 1 block. If I sent 2 it was double. I bought that mag yesterday too, some nice looking blocks it in don't you think?

    I love that mag, too. I have all of the editions so far.

    Postage mostly depends on thick your envelope is. A thick envelope is considered a package, and $1.95 is the package price.

    The key is to get it as flat aspossible. Sofar we received one that was short.

    If anyone is ever "short" on any of mine, please let me know and I'll send you the extra money.

    They tried that with me too, and I said I'm not paying that when I've been sending them for less than a dollar for almost two years. So I took it back went home put a 65 cent stamp on them and so far no one as complain about having to pay for postage to get there block back, so with that said please let me know if you have to pay extra for my mail to you and I will refund you the difference, since the cut backs at the PO some are trying to get more money than what deserve now if I send two blocks in same mailing I do have to pay more than a dollar and I don't have a problem with that...

    Ladies, I just wanted to update ya'll... I am about to start pounding out the rest of these blocks. My goal is to get 3-4 done per day for my days off (4 per week) so hopefully I'm pretty close to done by the end of Thanksgiving break! I'm sorry for making so many of you wait on me!

    Yes I like it!!! LOL. I was SO excited to get it!!! I have yours and the fabric for yours (picked it up from the Quilt Across Texas line this year) and just need to cut it. I'm hoping this week I can get everyone's blocks cut and then just sew next week.

    I wasn't going to say anything, but your envelope arrived with $.45 postage due. It's not a big deal; don't worry about it. Just thought I'd mention it since you posted about it.

    Speaking of which, I've got to play catch-up and post photos of the blocks I've received in the last few days. I'll try to do that tonight. I'm in full-swing Christmas mode, with holiday fabric scattered everywhere! It looks like the North Pole exploded! LOL!
    Have a wonderful day! If you need to contact me, please use the e-mail address on my profile page. Sometimes I don't get notifications that I have a PM here. Please note that I'm usually unavailable on weekends, but I'll get back to you on Monday.

    Goldendog--I was unable to post this before. I don't know what was going on with this computer. Anyway, everyone, this is the gorgeous block I received from Goldendog. Thanks very much.

    I do not have the first magazine of 100 Blocks. I would like to buy one if anyone knows where I can do that. It has really been fun going through all the issues and finding blocks to try. I was so addicted to buying it, I couldn't wait until the day it was available.

    Scrapper-hope you are doing better.

    Thanks to everyone who has sent blocks. I hope I have posted pictures and thanked you. If I missed anyone, please let me know.

    I pay about 95 cents to mail my grown up blocks out. I squish them as small as possible too. One of our post offices wants to charge me more then that so I go to my regular place. Sometimes it only costs me 65 cents. I think that is on the ones that do not have a lot of intricate pieces so not a lot of stitchin. But it seems it all averages about the 95 cents. It is strange how different the pricing can me even from teller to teller in the same post office.

    I had an envelope in my mailbox w/ $1.10 postage due stamped on it. Since it was delivered, I ignored it. I was waiting for them to say something and I was planning on giving them the envelope back with a note written on it that it was 'metered' at a USPO and if they did not agree with the fee they would need to take that up w/ their fellow PO! I would understand if it was just stamped and dropped in a mailbox but this was metered! I think it is rediculous.

    Not in a very long time. Someone said she was busy with a new job, but that's even been a while ago. Seems like she would check in every now and then....

    You can order all of the 100 blocks editions at Quilter's Village online. My usual place didn't have it tonight, so I'll check on it at Joann's tomorrow.

    I know LovingIzabella doesn't have a new job, but she's had problems at work in NY after Sandy. They'd been running on generators for a long time. I'll let her know you are wondering about her.
