Ok lady's I have a question. Today I found a copyrighted clipart but it doesn't say how. My question is would it be ok to try to make an appliqué using this picture or is that's big no no. I know that no one will be selling these quilts so I assume it's ok but want to make sure before I make them

I did a house swap and made 7 sets! I recieved WAY to many blocks for one quilt!

last Chicken swap I did 4 sets, thinking that way I could get one from each participant. but thats not the way it worked! I recieved several from one person, because she made alot of sets.
so, the odds are who makes the most sets recieves several from others who also make alot of sets.

this time I am doing 6 sets with the thought being "it will make a nice sized quilt"

I love this swap :D and love seeing all of the amazing ideas and blocks :D :D :D eveyone is so talented!
BUT, Im resigned to the fact that I will only take away a small part of the awesomeness to keep as my own :D

Deranged... interesting observation.

As each one posts their Funkies I have been saving them in 'my pictures' with who made them so IF I should NOT get one of each, I could maybe contact them and do a private swap... in order... to add to my quilt.

Anyway you slice it, it will be a fun, 'cuse me, funky quilt and I can't wait. :D

Pat, how cute!!!! I love all your chicks...the regal ruler and the fun and funky gals!!

In reference to the blocks. There can't be any guarantee that you get one of everyone's even if you make a zillion blocks! In the 1st funky chicken swap..there were a couple of people who only sent in 6. There were more than 6 who made a zillion blocks, so there was no way I could have them get one of everyone's...just not possible. I'm sure that no matter which blocks you get...they will be fun, funky and wonderful. Mariposa has a big job ahead of her!!!

PatP.... yipppeeeee.... you posted your photos successfully. Hip, hip, hoorayyyyy for you.

Love your chickens. Too cool.

Sandpat, so it was you who posted the last funky chicken swap? I did not know that. Your explanation makes sense. Thanks. I think everyone 'hopes' they could have one of each.

It will all work out. :-D

Guilty as charged Linda....it was fun to do it too. Mariposa has to post pics of the big piles of chickens when she gets the in. I bet she'll have to use a bunch of that basement space!

Pat P.. .that is some serious java addiction you got going on there chickie.

No wonder we see you on late at night, lol.

Love all the new chickies everyone is posting. I know I did 18 of the KFC buckets as I ran out of the corner fabric. The others I did are really very basic in comparison.

If some wants a KFC that doesn't get one, I can do some but the corners will be different.
