    I have one more question. Looking at past swaps, they say that you will be getting one of your blocks back when you recieve them at the end. My question is.... does that apply to us in this swap, or do we need to make a 7th one if we want one for ourselves? Thank you.

    I've been mulling over ideas in my mind. I have perfect fabric but don't know what pattern to do yet. :roll: I'm thinking something tall and skinny with really long legs . . . maybe 3"x9" or 6"x12". Definitely vertical rectangular.

    Then I was thinking about chicken pox today and thought, "Aha! . . . Chicken Pucks!" Any hockey fans out there who'd like a chicken puck? I don't know what they'd look like quite yet, but it would be fun to try to do. Probably 9"x9" square. Or is this idea a little TOO funky? :mrgreen:

    Do all 6 of the blocks made in the set go to one person?

    They all go to the person who leads/organizes the swap. That is why it is important to label your squares. The leader takes all the blocks that come in, sorts them and sends you a random set of 6 back. Yours go in random fashion to others who participated.

    Thanks for answering Mad, you explained it in a nutshell........The except will be that in this swap...you will get back 1 of your own and then 5 random blocks to complete your return set of 6. No need to make 7...unless its the 1st one for your 2nd set :wink:

    I agree with the tall rooster... do you know if that was a pattern she used or something she thought up and made?

    Hockey puck sounds really cool too sew cornie
