    Oh yummy, those are better than a banana split with all the toppings. Love the the Double T one, that is my fav of yours, but they all look great! I am partial to blue is all.

I should finish these up soon and turn my attention to the Virginia Star.

    These are looking so wonderful. I haven't had time to get to them yet. And I promised I'd look at the double T!

    Ok, now that I mailed them, when do they come back home? I know, I know, I know, behave myself. I am going to make some more from the other fabrics I have for myself to add to these to make 16 blocks and put on point for a different look. Then will decide the setting triangle color and border print.

    blocks due Saturday, October 20th. and then Deb needs some time to play with them still to swap them out. I think patience is in order for you. Sorry! Maybe I can get some others to you before that to keep you appeased.

    Oh, are you telling me to behave now? I just got my wonky log cabins so I can give Deb some time to enjoy having our blocks and others to finish. No wonder I wait till the last minute to mail, then I don't have to wait as long to get them back.

    Oh Evie, those are lovely! I don't think I can pick a favorite. Oh wait, maybe it's the Shoo Fly with that beautiful brown. But the VaStar is lovely too. And the Double Ts are blue ... so, yeah, I can't pick a favorite. Good job!

    Those in previous swaps hosted by me know that I have a very, very quick turn around time when the blocks are all in....that is why I am real (well almost) strict about the blocks being in on time. I promise they will be all returned within a week of all of them being here!!!

    Evie your blocks are beautiful. I really like all the colors that you used together. I better get busy and get mine finished. I can't wait to see the quilts put together after the swap.

    Thanks for the votes of confidence ladies. And Deb is correct when she says she has a quick turnaround. At least she did in the last swap (my first with her as hostess). Looking forward to getting some of the lovely blocks you've posted.

    Hello all from the state of NH. Been here since the 5th. Watching the leaves turn yellow and red. I have been able to sew here at my BFF house as she has 3 machines. Her computer is not a priority and so it is slow so I try not to use it. I love the double T"s that are coming in. when I first saw that pattern, I thought yuk and it is hard to do so that was a double yuk. But when I finished mine I was amazed at how pretty it was. Then seeing everyone's on here, I have decided that I need more of them there double T's.

    My BFF and I went down toward Sturbridge Village here in MA and stopped at some quilt shops on the way. I picked out a lot of CW material that have a very light beige background. I didn't own any light material from the CW so i got plenty. My friend stocked up on the darks. I am trying to get her to join this board but alas.......she is a total Anal personality and she says that she is so picky that she would get the blocks back and probably find something that she thought was wrong and have to tear it apart and redo it. LOL. I think that she is a quilt police in disquise. Of course she is not critical of what i do because i just tell her to live with it. I was surprised that some of the CW material is light colors though.

    I was also surprised at some of the light colors that were CW, but then noted that the other color with it was a muted one. At least the ones that I were shown. The Double T was the third block that I choose, and I have to say it has become one of my favorite ones in this swap when I see all the different colors coming in. That block was definitely worth choosing!

    Ok, Deb. You said "when sending your blocks, please separate them into individual baggies." Does that mean each set of blocks in a bag or each individual block in a bag??
