    I love your thinking.That would be the best of both world's. A chicken playing in the fall leaves......too cute!

    Donna, glad you can come join us. Yep, Red is doing the arm twisting....it's not me....I'm too sweet!

    I'm trying to hold off about doing more swaps for the time being (the key word being "trying"! LOL!), but I have a thought. Since there's a separate Halloween swap going already, why not make this swap fall-themed only, with no Halloween blocks? That way those who celebrate Halloween can join the Halloween swap, and those wanting just fall-themed blocks can join this one. And those who enjoy both, can join both swaps!

    Just an idea I thought I'd toss out.

    I've got a number of UFO's I'm trying to work on, too. I know all too well about doing so many swaps that there's not much time for anything else! Heck, I've got a pile of swap blocks that's over TWO FEET TALL that I *still* haven't done anything with. Isn't that pathetic?
    Have a wonderful day! If you need to contact me, please use the e-mail address on my profile page. Sometimes I don't get notifications that I have a PM here. Please note that I'm usually unavailable on weekends, but I'll get back to you on Monday.

    Hi moonrise!
    I know what you are saying and I agree. I don't know why I mentioned the halloween except that it is in the fall. It really isn't taking priority on this swap. THis one is all about fall. We would love to have you if you are wanting some fun fall blocks and to join in the banter on the thread.

    There we all go twisting some more arms. The doctor bills are going to be high the next couple of months. We need to get out the sombra gel (icy hot) and do some application.

    Red I think that turkey is so adorable.

    Ms. Grace, wow, you are quick!

    Ahh, Moonrise, you have a couple of months to get those other swaps sewn up while thinking of what to make for this one then you can join on in.

    Ms Grace,

    I am so excited you found all of your blocks! I started looking around and was so inspired! I cut out the squirrels yesterday. They are adorable if you ask me. I will show and tell as soon as I finish them up! Shopping today with my sis though. Have fun with your blocks!

    Here's the design pack I bought this morning for the swap.

    I thought they would be great.
    The hard part will be deciding which ones to use.

    I have that design pack Ms. Grace. Now that brings ideas for the funky chicken swap because I have some blackwork chickens that will work great for it and then I can clean out a UFO with them. Whoo Hoo, two birds with one stone, oops, that is six birds with one stone. Ahhhh, I feel better already, I have a set done for another swap.

    Oh, you can give me one of those squirrels as well so I have two of them. I think this fall swap qill go in my office for the season.

    Also, I have a pumpkin pieced block that I made up which will be fun to use. Oh, now here I go, I have to focus on the current swaps that are due and my blocks not finished 100%. They are close, hope I can get my machine to working so I can finish them up while other is embroiderying shoppping flamingos.

    Hi All,

    I'm a new quilter (took a class about 5 years ago and just pulled my quilt top back out that I made to start working on finishing it). I've also started work on some other quilt tops also.

    I had a question about this swap before I joined. Do the blocks have to be something pieced for Fall (such as the turkey that RedGarnett222 did) or can it just be a block with fall colors? I'm looking at some print for the main middle square of my block that has pumpkins on it.

    Oooooo, that sounds pretty ozone3. Not sure what Red thinks, but I hope that woudl be something acceptable especially if you put a pumpkin the center. Oh how nice, it is still in the fall theme, hey Red, is that right? If that is the case, I know I got some great fabric for that. I could mix my pumpkin fabric and leaf fabric to make a pieced block which would be fun. Oh say yes pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeese.

    Does this block look like it would be good for this swap? I figure an Fall quilt is not complete without this classic leaf block right? 6 1/2 "

    We must think alike to have the same design pack.
