A big whopping 18 degrees right now, fireplace is roaring....What do yuh think of these ladies, can you make me blocks?Name:  DSCF1016.JPG

    You two are too accommodating. I have used this fabric in about 4 quilts that I have made though. Guys that ride Harleys, and then they ordered purses for their wives. Pretty neat. My son sure wants a couple of table runners and a large oval or octagon mat for his coffee table, I'd sure have you make a block for me. If we get in one of the groups together, I'll be sure and ask if you'll make me 2....remind me if I forget ok? Would love the help. This is Name:  DSCF1014.JPG

    Jannie, I do a small group too... I like that I can do one a week and not get over loaded. Most of the time I get two or three but some weeks I get zero done. so all in all it balances. I also do the side swaps when offered. Godd to have you swapping. Phannie

    Jaba - send it out - I have all shades of oranges/yellows that could really have fun together. That is what I like about this swap - it stretches me, Using fabric I don't normally play with, and then fall in love with!
    As for the sexy firemen - I would love to see moonwalk's dad when that came in the mail!!! Wonder what block he would have her make with it!! Oh I am laughing thinking about all the people opening up the envelope with it in!!! heheh - now that would be fun!!

    JAN YOU HATE ORANGE! how did you buy so much ORANGE flame fabric? yikes. I think April will be in happy heaven working on your orange flames. Send me the flowered stuff lol. I have to think devils little devils is what I come up with when I see flames. Oh Lord, please dont let her send that to me. I will do payback if she does. yes yes I will

    AND i am all done being not me. It didnt work out. yuck. so well world HERE I COME! coming to a block exchange near you! I thought the fabrics coming in last year were so much fun. some you will love some you will be indifferent to and others you say oh heck what the .. heck? can I do with that.. and then you make something and suddenly its like oh that isnt half bad I kinda like that. I would never work with half of the fabric I received and it was rewarding to finish a block see how the colors go together then see others interpretations.. its great for the learning curve and helps teach how to better combine colors/texture/designs.

    What you will need: blenders, tone on tones etc in your stash I think. If your joining check out what you have and consider maybe a few staples like whites, blacks, beige, gray, red. not much it doesnt take much to finish a block but there were a few times I did the old wish I had.. i didnt spend much.

    Also when sending if you can keep your envelope really flat like wrap your fabric in saran wrap or people used a lot of that machine that wraps things for freezing? it cuts postage down to regular stamp .. and that is a good thing zip bags have that bump? and depending on yourpost office they might charge the higher hand cancel rate of .65 c .

    its snowing its snowing. yipppeee I am off to sewing.. Yosemitesa you are avoiding me I know it! first your not my quilty quilt trade pal now your galavanting off into a smaller group. next we will never see each other again and well.. my heart is broken. i am amazed you did a large group with all you have going to begin with. I totally get a small group this time. I am saying one large group this time but thats cause the queen bee here has not put out a call for two more people then I can close the swap.. she got me last time..maybe I can hide when she says it?
    Linda
    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    Elisabrat you are so funny. We love the real you anyways.

    I am going to be doing something different this time. My daughter in Australia does not want quilts for the grandchildren so I have not been able to make my darling grandkids quilts. But most Australian children have duvets (which are the same as our down comforters) and so I am going to make duvet covers. LOL. It will be like making a giant pillow case. So My granddaughter likes owls and when I was there we bought some owl material to make a little tiny pillow for her for her dance class. I was shocked at the material she picked. I thought seeing it was for ballet she would pick out a girly material but oh no.....she picked out brown background with bright owls on it. So my brain was thinking to do her in owls....but I couldn't find any owls material in the colors she specified so I am just going with a blue/purple print. She will have to put up with girly. LOL. The boys are almost done so I will need a few more squares to finish their's off. Then my other material will be for me. YEAH> Time to be a little selfish and make for yourself.
    So yeah I am a glutton for punishment....I want to be in every group. I love making squares for other people and seeing the squares of fabric you send me. The challenge to make something. I know what Linda means when she says you get one that is a real challenge because you just can't figure out what to do with it....but when done, I am happy with it. Bring it on April.
