    Yes they are raw edges and I have never had a problem with many washes and every swap I have been in I have done them and no one has complained yet. So I believe they are ok.

    Iam sorry to say Belfrybat pulled out. I don't blame her for there is only five of us playing and now down to four. I already received lovngrandma one block set and always can send her 6 back. I don't understand why this was not a success other than maybe I stepped on toes. Don't know how and I even changed the dates to make this swap work. We still have 6 days left for anyone to join. I am extremely disappointed at this time but will stick with this for some of you still want to do it. I already finished by blocks but we certainly can knock down the number of sets to 2 if no one else signs up or one set if that what you prefer.

    Let me know if this is what you would like to do or drop out. Thanks

    Hey girls! Sorry I have been quite lately. Christmas, two birthdays, and the new job schedule has had me running in circles. I will survive because I am a girl. Hear me roar.....meow!

    Anyways, I am still in for two sets. This week end I do not have to work and don't have any other plans but the crafting area. I have several things that need to be finished and in the mail by the end of the month.

    Happy sewing!!

    There is only four of us.
    tracibug - 6 sets
    lovngrandma - 1 set
    queenof2802 - 2 sets
    And mine 6 sets

    Now lovngrandma said she could make more sets.
    So really sense there is four of us and we give one of all our blocks . I would make 18. This way I could give s to each person. If you want one of your own you would make 24 and 6 one of each of your own blocks.now 2 of you only sign up for one set and two sets. So for you to it wouldn't be hard to send back to you . Let me know what you all think and thank you for continuing this swap .

    Okay queenof2802 if you make 3 blocks in each set that would give each of us a block. Now you could make 4 blocks and keep one for yourself. There is only four of us so we don't need six in a set.
    tracibug, lovngrandma and myself we would make 3 in each set and we could get one of every design. Plus keep one for ourselves. But we need to pick out 2 of of our blocks designs to give to queenof2802 so this would make the three of us 20 blocks total. I hope this makes sense to you all.

    Now this being said if you have different blocks but similar we could swap more. Like I did six dog blocks but some of the dogs are different. That's only if you wanted more than one dog.

    I am coming along. Work 1/2 day tomorrow so hopefully I will be getting these finished up and in the mail on Tuesday morning. Sad that our group isn't any bigger than 4 but it will still be a great swap!!
