    Sara,

    According to my record, I haven't received block from you. So I believe it is the 1st block that is mine. I sent Thimbleberries to everyone and the first block looks like thimbleberries. They a beautiful blocks!

    It's taking me forever too...so don't feel behind! lol.
    And I was JUST saying to my SIL that in the time it takes me to take a block apart I could make two more! geesh! I'm right there with ya!

    I feel like I spent 3/4 of the weekend working on blocks and only got 2 done. The third I was putting on the last row and noticed that I put the center fabric back side up! (there is no wrong side :-D ) but while I liked it like that, I didn't think the recipient would appreciate my innovation.

    I just don't understand how so many of you are finished with 36 blocks. It takes me forever to decide on matching fabric, decide on a block, cut it out and sew it together even if all goes well. My goal was to have at least half done by now but it didn't happen.
    I will preserve!

    All the blocks posted are lovely and will make great quilts! Keep up the good work ladies!
    :-D

    Don't feel bad I'm only a third of the way there! We have lots of time left! Will be sewing like crazy this week-it's going to start raining again so I'll stay in. However, several will be with me in Puyallup for the evenings providing I didn't play too much during the day and am exhausted. Can't put out a nicely sewn block when that is happening!

    I'm so proud of all my beautiful blocks. This is so much fun!

    sarasewing:
    the 'coral' flower fabric is in fact mine, so that one you have correct, the other, sorry no help.
    the block for me looks great though :mrgreen:
    don't feel bad, it's really easy to get a little mixed up with these....

    Okay, all you over-achievers out there, you're putting me to shame! I've only got 5 done and mailed. My difficulty comes with trying to find something in my stash to go with your fabrics ... there are a few that just don't want to tell me what they would like to live with as neighbors!

    I have 4 or 5 more blocks cut out (I think), and about 15 that I have selected patterns and am on the way to choosing the "good neighbor" fabrics, but it's getting tricky.

    I hope to have mine all finished and out by the 3rd week of March. Just want to take my time and make sure I've done it right.

    Regarding that "fabrics that go with" issue....I'm thinkin' that the ones that aren't screamin' for what they want for neighbors may be the most fun....Picture this: I'm having a great time sewing up this fantastic pattern for my swap partners and the song that keeps playin' in my head when I reach for more fabric to add is getting louder and louder and louder....what song, you ask? Expess YOURSELF! Hope everyone is laughin' with me on this one...I really needed the exercise, but getting up from the floor is a bit more than I actually had in mind!
    And on that other issue....I'm scared stiff that I'm going to mix these blocks up too...I've put the ones I'm working on first into big Ziplocs (one for each swap partner) that shows lots of the fabric on one side and holds all of their info including outbound envelope on the other...sealed and safe from cat induced chaos! But, I doubt that this is going to make me bulletproof...so, I'm trying to keep my fingers crossed as much as possible...teehee.

    I received two blocks from granny216 today!
    Thank you so much. Love the blocks and sorry I can't post a picture at this time.

    I also opened another envelope from my to do box and it is from Isabella! I'm so thrilled and honored to make her a block.
    The fabric is a dark brown wood grain and I know just what I want to do with that. I'm sorry I didn't open it sooner as I know it is hard to wait for return mail for little ones. Tell her I am getting right on it!
    :-D

    Anita R - got your block today, thank you. I really like the combination of fabrics that you chose. Right now it's on my wall snuggled up with some of its new friends waiting for more of the gang to show up for another group shot.

    I am loving all of the blocks posted and no worries I still have about 18 or so left to do.
    I am getting a bit concerned though. I have mailed completed blocks to Anita, Colleen, Cindy and Mary but have not heard that you ladies have received them. Please let me know :-)
    I will have more ready to go home soon. I am so happy we all got to do this swap together and really can not wait for 2.0 :-)
    Hugs

    I have been hospitalized with cellulitis - I've been receiving i.v. therapy today. They let me go home tonight...I have received several blocks in the mail, but I can't walk into the sewing room (or anywhere else, for that matter). I promise to update as soon as I am able.

    Purplemem, I am so sorry that you are sick. Please take care of yourself, I wish I was a littlr closer to you. I would do the Southern thing and take over, 'fried chicken, potato salad, sweet tea and a nana puddin' Thank you so much for the beautiful block. Blue Iris is my favorite flower. lov n prayers, ispy
