    Just received my block from OK Darla - Thank you so much - the star will make the quilt pop!
    Not expecting the last block from Savannah so will have to start working on putting the blocks together. Just haven't had much umph lately - too many other side projects around the house.
    Merry Merry Christmas - stay safe and looking forward to swapping with all you next month. Had washed,rewashed,soaked,washed my material and the colors bled so bad I decided to not use it. So now to think about another option. Now that I have one swap down I have more ideas on fabric!

    All of your blocks are fabulous but I love that third one down. Do you by chance have the name of it?

    I love that one too. Bet it is paper pieced, and if I can find the pattern, I am going to try it.

    Love your blocks Anastasia perhaps I can borrow a few? only for a little while like 30 yrs then I will give them back, your young you can wait.

    Here are my blocks all together for show and tell. I have an ivory/white lace looking fabric to go between them kind of eyelette like.. its going to be very pretty thank you.

    Why no block from savannah random? is she not doing well? or did she have to fall out of the exchange?

    Happy New Years to everyone early too because I might forget wishing a year of joy. its such a marvelous gift you can give yourself. free too! try a cup see if you dont like it. (no returns on the wish sorry). Name:  rubies all blocks.jpg

    Caitlan's First Quilt

    I had posted Caitlan working on her first quilt. Here is the final out come. She is so proud of herself and her mother sent me the nicest text message thanking me for helping to create such a nice gift for her daughter to give her. Thanks for looking.

    Yes ... that is an original, and yes, it's paper pieced. Glad you guys liked it!

    I started with a QC block called "snowblossoms" ... set it on point and switched the colors around so that I had the dark/light instead of just white. I had to re-design it in EQ to get the PP pattern. I want to make that block again.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Love the layout of the blocks ... it's sad though that Sue kinda stands out with the different color background. I wish I had used a WOW for the background.

    Sorry I've not looked in on this thread in a while. Been busy with other quilting projects (go figure!).

    Update: All blocks received with the exception of Savannah - and I think we are all waiting on her. I hope she's OK ... I see that she was in several swaps but hasn't posted anything to QB since October.

    I was in my sewing room starting a new project because the last project I finished which was a lap quilt for ME I decided at the last second was a Christmas gift for a neighbor. Bummmer ... I STILL don't have a quilt of MY OWN and I'm cold darnnit!!

    So instead of flogging myself I decided that I wasn't going to wait for a block from Savannah and I would start to put my blocks from the swap together. But first I wanted to check in. Tomorrow I'll have them all up on a wall to see how big it's going to be and what "filler" blocks I need to make (remember ... I had asked for different size blocks).

    Off to play with my blocks!!

    OK .. here are all of the blocks I received. As it stands the quilt dimensions look to be about 56 x 44 without borders. I need to adjust some around to even it out - but as I thought (hoped) I will need to make some "filler" blocks - long rectangles of things like flying geese.

    I have: six 12" blocks, eleven 9" blocks, and two 6x9" blocks.

    this is going to be soooo cool!!

    Thanks again everyone.

    hi all, i hope you had a fabulous christmas!! anyone getting chance to get near their sewing machine??
    mmm, me neither lol...

    Sue, your blocks look amazing laid out together!!! what a great selection of block patterns!!
    i can't wait to see the top put together with your 'flying geese' fillers too!! great idea!! lovely!! great colour choices btw!!

    i received my 'last' block yesterday from 'ok darla'. thank you 'sew' much for the appliqued kettle!!! over here, i'm what you would class a 'tea jennie' as i'm ALWAYS drinking tea!! it's perfect!!! love it! lol...
    i say 'last' block as i don't expect the other 'last' one to come. i suspect 'savannahanndons' has had something major crop up in her life that has really got in the way of things for her.
    i hope she's ok, bless her...

    any more block lay outs to see girls?? i will take a pic of mine today to show you...
    hugs all, love jacquie xxx

    Phannie ... that quilt of Caitlins is gorgeous! I've never been fond of that pattern, but I love what she did with it with the side border and the wide black border. Well done Caitlin!

    Sue - those little bits of red are perfect - all the colors really go together nicely - wow!!
    And brat - who would of thought - so many great blocks and all so nicely done
    I love this part - seeing how it all turned out. Gotta get mine out again. Had spent way too much time cleaning up and cleaning out. then I took over the dining room table to put the bindings on two large quilts that have been UFO for awhile. I think, after looking at all the different materials etc. I have decided on my 2013 material! Well, maybe....

    Gracie's Quilt

    Most know I am going to donate this quilt to our local Humane Animal Shelter. It the passing of my "Grace" it will be given in her name. I am very excited to get it done. I did not even get the last block down be for the quilt inspector had to have her say. LOL Precious has given her approval so tomorrow I will get the sashing fabric and backing and "get-er-done." Thanks for all the condolences over Grace's passing.

    Precious and I are doing ok. Precious has stayed close and I have been giving her a little extra loving. Do miss her and her little things she did. Thanks again, Phannie and Precious....

    I am so glad a lot of you are ready to put your tops together. I just went through my list and the only one I have missing is for savannahrandons, and boo hooooooo hoooo...I can't find my block from Australia and Minneapolis...I don't know if they have NOT arrived, or if I have just misplaced them. I will keep looking, I have so many hidey holes to look in..lol. I have been sewing as of today. I had a local swap with some blocks, and one gal and I decided we wanted to make our quilt bigger, so I am sending her 6 more and she is making me six more. Added to the 13, I will have 18 blocks..sweeeeeeeeeeeetttttt... It is a 10" block, but it is so cool. All tone on tone blocks with Kona snow as the background. Love it.. So since we are so close to January, I think I will begin to think about what I would like to do next. Kimberly gave me a stupendous idea, and I think I might just copy her. She is a very smart cookie!
    Ok, movin on...I'll be in tow

    Every one's quilt tops will be beautiful.
