    I am willing to wait until all the blocks are in and would luv as much variety as possible.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    I have 18 sets in now.....with the swapping you would get 9 different ones (one of yours comes back).....however, I will wait.......as I do try not only to accomodate requests, but also try to keep a similar color combination. Okay, my arm is twisted, I will wait till all are in. There were some who were anxious to get swapped out......

    You got to admit Deb, Civil War and sibling war have something in common.

    Oh Anna, that's a good one! There were siblings on opposite sides weren't there? Thank you for waiting Deb. I also prefer variety in my blocks.

    Oohhh, you made two sets, Benndm! I'm impressed. They are all lovely, but I especially like your VA Stars.

    I was thinking of doing two sets but wasn't sure I'd have the time. Should have done it. "He who hesitates is lost," they say.

    Thanks for the kind comments. I hope my fabrics are the right color. Photos don't always get it right.
    I can't wait to get my assortment back. How are you going to set your blocks together?

    I really like setting blocks on point with sashing in between.

    I get to play with all the blocks, sort and fold and package......my joy is when they come to each quilter and THEY love them.

    So glad the vote is to wait, I want a different ones as well. No hurry to get them back, have enough to do still.

    You will get blocks from 9 different quilters. Three different St of Va, three different quilters for Shoo Fly and another three different ones for Double T's. All will be varied.....
    When I went to the PO today to alert them that I was going to be bringing in about 23 packages, the clerk alerted me that in January the flat rate will go up...once again. Not sure of the price......I know we all put what we can into fabric, then only to be injured again with increased postage.

    Well, Deb, if you hurry and tell us your projects for next year we can all whip them up before the postage rises..

    Sheri I hope you are speaking for yourself. Good idea for saving on postage but the reality of it happening is something different.

    Miss Fay, you did a great job for your first time round! Lovely colors and nice crisp points -- I especially like your VA Star.

    All the blocks I've seen so far have brought a smile to my face. I'm getting really excited now, just like everyone else.

    As for the PO, yes prices may go up, but it's still the best mail delivery system in the world IMO. I get a little thrill every time I check my mailbox. Simple pleasure -- or is that simple mind?
