    I am moving right along, and I have a block going in the mail today for OkDarla...watch for it.

    Also, I have two players in the group I have not recieved fabric from and one is the gal that is NOT sending fabric, and that is Eagleoneow12u2 I do believe, and the other I have not recieved an f8 from is calquilter. Were you going to send me a piece of your fabric? I have all my ducks in a row, and only have 3 blocks left to make that I am holding fabric for that being:
    quiltaddiction, quiltingcraftylady and SazuBMidlands.

    These will be made by this weekend and hopefully in the mail. There were 16, counting myself, so I will have made 15 to mail out and one for little ole me...ctmhjenn

    It's a pretty block but that's not at all the fabric I received from you. Did you send different F8s to us?
    So confused - - -

    BTW - - my block for you went in the mail today. Hope you like.

    I received very pretty blocks from: urgodschild, ctmhjenn and quiltacciction. Thanks, ladies. I mailed out blocks to:

    tlambing, paperpieceme, urgodschild and quiltingcraftylady. I'm not currently able to post pictures. Hopefully will get that remedied soon.

    I had one odd piece Nelco was the lucky one to receive the last of my fabric from the last swap, everyone else got "paintbrush garden" I needed a couple more to finish up that quilt, so it all worked out!

    To Okdarla and quilt addiction, I took the envelopes to the post office yesterday and mailed them...however....
    If I mailed these as a "correspondence" envelope, it was 2.75 but if it is not correspondence, then it goes as a 'package', STILL in a regular envelope, it is $6.55. I am experiencing the same thing you other gals are doing. So, the wrinkle in this is...two of the clerks talked me into shipping them as correspondence, so the one to Australia was I believe $2.50 and the one to Canada was $1.30...now, IF...and I do want you to tell me, if they don't come back to me, that IF there was postage due, you will TELL ME and I will send you the money. I did not do this to make you pay the shipping, I am just testing the waters. I believe that this is still a correspondence as all that is in there is a quilt block, which goes for the same price in the states as a regular letter. I am dismayed, like the rest of you, of the cost to ship international. If I decide to do this again, I will have to reconsider. We have 3 ladies in this group that are international and I would love to hear how all of you feel about this. You have to pay to send to us too, and postage is not marked on my envelope. Please jump in on this, I would really like to know how you all feel. ctmhjenn

    Mailing is really an interesting topic. There are three post offices close to our house, each one of them give different information. How are you to know who is right?

    I agree with you. I guess if we put in written correspondence, that counts as just correspondence? I took a chance okdarla, please let me know when it gets there and if it cost you anything...ok? Joan

    when i mailed my blocks back out, the one that went to NY State cost 10 cents more than the one to the UK and Australia. I thought that was wild. they all should have weighed the same.

    ps i mailed out my last block on Monday.

    cthmjenn Thanks for letting me know the block is on its way. I will watch for it. Postage is becoming expensive all over these days. It costs around $2.35 to airmail from Australia to the USA/Canada an A5 size envelope with a F8 or block in it. $6.55 is really expensive when you multiply that out. For me it cost $2.35 for everyone in the group. I look at it that I am getting an original quilt meeting lovely quilters and its a win win. My circumstances are I can afford to do these swaps I am very fortunate. I love to do these swaps but I do understand not everyone can.
    Everyday is a good day for Quilting!

    I guess it is the US Postal system only, that is in dire straights. I guess I was just plain shocked from the last swap, a lot less. I will appreciate a note of cost if there is more. It does get more interesting swapping with quilters from all over the world, but even here, I consider this very special too. Joan

    Hi All, Just wanted to check in.
    I've now received 10 grown up blocks back, from Buddy'smom, calquilter, frenchfryqueen, urgodschild2, tam...moo, quiltaddiction, quiltingcraftylady, Jaba, paperpieceme and Nelco. They are all gorgeous blocks! I'll have to try to get a photo of them together to upload for you all.

    As for the postage on the ones I've received it ranges from $1.10 (x 2), $2.05, $2.25, $2.90 (x2), and then the one from Urgodschild2 (not including the ones with stamps which I don't know the value of). I don't understand the postal system in the States. How come its not just flat rate? It does see to be a pretty big difference between them!

    I was trying to figure out options for any future swaps, and wondered if a possible alternative would be if someone would volunteer as a collecting point in the US, and then get all the grown up blocks sent back together - would that work at making it cheaper, or would sending all the blocks to that one person first actually make it more expensive still? I don't know how much internal postal rates are...

    Below are all the blocks I have received so far. I am trying to decide on whether to do sashing, on point, etc. Looking forward to receiving the rest of my blocks this coming month!

    Has there ever been a swap on here where swappers got to request the specific block they wanted, and everyone just used their own fabric to make it? I think that would be fun.
