    OK, I've read this a dozen times. Any swap run by Brat has to be a good one. I am in. Sending PM now.

    Oh but being as I live in Canada, the patriotic to me would be only red and white!

    There are some more that would love the triangle one, so you got me paired up with someone I am sure, if I need to have two partners, then so be it, I can get these quilted and ready to go. If my partner is the one who said would do binding, then there we go, I am done. Will put them in the line up to be quilted. Will be in May, but no worries. The DWR will be done in feathers of course, and will find a suitable modern design for the triangles. I will have to look up the magazine I got it out of. Was June 2007 Quilters News letter I believe, but let me get it for sure. they are 60 degree triangles. You piece them like you would a lone star in a sense, but the strips are two different sizes. I just wanted to try the idea. Yep, it has been in my stash of magazines since then. That is when i started it and then I put the magazine with the fabric inside it on the shelf and forgot about it till I was cleaning up the magazines and giving them away. the DWR is from before that, oh about 10 years ago, made a king for my brother then had a few left so made up the table runner then it got stuffed away when we moved and I forgot about it. Silly me.

    The colors in that are so pretty takers will crawl out of the cupboards quiltermomma. even a simple quilt job and that is terrific. why not a flip no binding if you dont want to do binding? just a thought...

    Arizonakat your in I am sorry your name isnt showing lets add you officially right now. I wrote a post earlier guess it didnt show up. I am getting a blue screen in the quick reply all the time its frustrating the hell out of me. argh pirates!

    NEW (already signed up Brat blew it and forgot to add a couple)

    ARIZONAKAT SIGNED UP!
    BUSLADY SIGNED UP!
    on the official list in the saved folder and everything promise you guys this is going to be such a great swap. All of you do such cool work and MAIL. I will be seriously unhappy with anyone who doesnt mail. Its not fair to others who work so hard so that would probaby not work with me. I do hope I do not need a quilting angel this round. I trust all of you and with that said wish I could start the party right now. I am personally dying to figure out what fabrics I might need for my partners pic of the month!

    just off the top of the shoulder here who is thinking they are wanting summer to give/ to get and who is wanting to make patriotic to give or get? ie I would love patriotic but can make summer as i have no flags waiting to be sewn in my stash? does that make sense ? not saying I can work magic but I might be able to try to give partners in a way that it helps at least some of you only use your stash and not make you have to go shopping.

    happy happy dance dance!!!! I was so uhappy yesterday evening I got almost nothing done on my two days off.. then the hubby says.. you do know its Sunday right? I said no.. he said yes its Sunday. OH MY GOSH I have Mondays off too so it was this wonder moment. how did I do that? spend the whole day thinking it was another day. Figured it out he took Saturday off and he never takes Saturday and Sunday off so it all fell together for me. I was o.d.'s with husband inthe house syndrome. lol. go back to work! go fishing! go paint something! just GO! he has a tendancy to want to visit while I sew so I am forever stopping to talk again and it ruines my groove at times. lots of times.

    Today I will evict him so I can sew. wish me oodles of luck. here fishy fishy .. here fishy fishy..
    just sent in my info. looking forward to another swap.........jacie

    Yeah! I made it on the list!

    Summer for me in the desert is scorpions, rattlesnakes, fire ants, dust storms, scorching heat and cactus that stick to the dogs noses. So anything thats green and colorful (and doesn't bite or sting) would be wonderful!.

    Hehe, be careful what you wish for girl! We have a round table with a fire pit in the middle we almost never use. It came with a lid, but it has a knob handle on it, so you can't put just any old runner/mat/tablecloth on it. I keep threatening to make something to put on it with a hole in the middle for the handle, and some matching curved placemats for the edge pieces.

    Ooh, or maybe a mat to use on the boat to lay on when the benches get too hot.

    I can think up some challenges for ya!

    Bright and summery would be wonderful right now, it's snowing again, we are in a winter storm advisory. Talk about a winter that keeps on giving.

    It was 72 yesterday. Windy this morning but I believe that is to die down and warm right up again. I heard it was 90 in the bay area yesterday (NO THANK YOU). I will take my sunny day and be very happy. Today is a great day. The DH has one last day of being home on comp time and then he is going back to work!!! this is great. oh yes it is. I have dialysis this morning so only half a day! He is very sweet but he needed to chat every 15 minutes yesterday. I pray he doesnt retire soon or I may have to go back to work for peace and quiet lol. I get into this grove.. if its quiet and I can just sew. I started on my mug rugs yesterday. I wish I had a shorter sign up period but was worried someone might miss out on the fun. so if your that someone SIGN UP!! We hit the golden 30 so far! that is a great turn out and well whats 10 more right? or 20? jump on in! we are waiting for you!!

    We have been in the 70's and 80's all weekend and yesterday, woke this morning in the mid 60's and when I get off work tonight it is suppose be in the low 40's. UGH.. I so enjoyed the weekend, atleast it waited until I came back to work. I get a 4 day weekend about every other to every 3rd week. I get to schedule my days and it is nice only working 4 days a week, they are long days, I work 9 am to 8 pm CST.

    I work for an home portable oxygen company (battery operated portable concentrator) so it is nice having the freedom to work these hours.

    Grandmadi WELCOME to the group!!! The more the merrier they say I am so ready to get started working with pretty bright colors. I just finished a quilt top for another swap and its all dark blue and purple and greens and .. not telling but its a rich dark gemstone colored quilt and I am now ready to go light bright fun exciting sunny colors. You ever get that way work with one theme so much that you now want to work with anything but that for a while? Happens to me often. I love the booms this way you can end up with a quilt out of fabrics you love but dont have to spend hours playing with yourself variety and all that.

    room for more. join us!

    I wish I had this very good idea (bad bad idea) of waiting til May so that people have the opportunity to finish up some things like booms and such and feel able to join this one too. We are now 34 and rising!!! (yes I was afraid no one would sign up if I was doing this..) I believe I would get in trouble giving out names early so I have to wait. Open to bribes of all sorts...

    I wonder if I can say if you are making patriotic make start on that its ok and I will find you someone who wants patriotic. the trick is you probably have to want it back so I can let someone who wants to make it also swap with you when I hand out names.. anyone think that is a possibility? like I cant give you names but I can say 20 of you who want to make summer make summer and the rest want to make patriotic make that then try to figure out who gets who for partners? that way the rush bunnies can start and the rather wait and see's can wait and see... just a thought. might not even be legal here. I know in DQ's they start early some are ready to send the day they get their partners. some wait til last day of the month to send. so.. old advisers/kibitzers feel free.. jump on in give me your thoughts. remember your with a partner not a secret pal.
