    All the blocks should be delivered by Saturday at the very latest - even with the storm issue.

    Came home tonight and my blocks were here. They are beautiful. This is by far the best block swap I have ever been in.
    Thank You everyone and Thank You Deb for all you have done.

    Now that the swap is done, I have spent 28 hours (Fri and Sat) putting together a Log Cabin quilt for a RE client of mine. He should be closing on the house this week, as well as starting a new position in a school district. Posting pictures is a real hassle for me. There has to be an easier way. Anyway, as for another swap, I probably won't be setting anything up till January. The holiday season is just too busy for everyone, and it should be family time, not rushing to beat fabric deadlines. I do have an idea, it involves tweaking the swap a bit. I am thinking of doing a large block, God's Eye, I am being spiritually drawn to that block, but instead of making 12, since it is a large block, maybe only 6 or perhaps stretching it to 9. Just in the roaming around in my head idea.

    I googled "God's Eye". This is where it took me: http://www.quilterscache.com/G/GodsEyeBlock.html. Is this the block you were thinking of, Deb? Because it really is beautiful!

    Wow! The layout that shown on page 3 is stunning against that all black background. And the border...oh my.

    With a block that large, it would make a great center for a row robin...just sayin'

    It is Quilterscache. I like to choose blocks from that site as it gives all the directions. With this, I will probably insist on the black background....it really makes it pop. I will do one first to see how long it takes and if we will do 6 or 9. But I am getting ahead of myself. Not till January. Also, a huge thank you for the kind words regarding this swap. Maybe if it were also posted in the feedback forum, we would get some more to join us if the others know that these swaps are pretty good ones???

    Great idea for starting in January, I would love to make that block. Challenging us on those flying geese again. After doing the Double T, this should be a piece of cake. I vote 9 blocks so it can end up nice and even for a lap quilt. Would love to join in. I will watch next year. Yep, almost that time.

    I keep forgetting about the feedback. I am going there right now so everyone knows how great Deb is at hosting these swaps!

    ADD: OK, I would love to add a feedback but can't find where or how to do so. Am I missing something? Help!!

    Ladies if you look under our aviators you'll see a line called "Feedback Score" next to that is a green number with your score if you have one. Click that and it will open the feedback page. To the right side in the smaller column it will say, for instance, "Give feedback for Deb" click that and fill in the blanks. Easy peasy! Good luck

    Thanks for the info, SheriR. However, I clicked on the "green number" and got nowhere. I also tried finding info on the "help" forum and didn't locate anything. Any other ideas? Or is there something I need to do on my profile? Help (again)!

    That's so weird. I do it like I said. If you're rating someone with no score the page will be blank but the chance to rate them is there.

    Duh! I'm telling you, my little gray cells are taking too many vacation days! I was actually going into Deb's profile and clicking on her "feedback" tab and trying to post that way. Can I read and comprehend "avatar" with its feedback score notation right in front of my eyes? Apparently not! Thanks, SheriR. I sent a feedback for Deb and hopefully I will be able to retain this bit of knowledge for the next time.
