    Thanks for the ideas. Pictures look great. Guess I need to look outside of the box. I am psyched about this swap, as I have a new grandson that I would do this one for. I did a crib quilt for him with his birth info, but need to do a twin size now. Margaret

    ok I have bit the bullet. I will do 4 sets. I have the first one almost all done. I still would like to do a dragon but I am not having much luck in finding a dragon that I like. sigh. I have two young grandsons that I will make a duvet cover for their duvets. In australia they basically use duvets and so my daughter is not keen on my quilts at all but a cover would work well with them. So back to work on my first set. I will post pictures when i finish them.

    Hi everyone!!

    The sign-up deadline is approaching for this swap!!We have a small crew, so if you have committed, please be sure to get your blocks finished in time as people dropping will make it hard on everyone else!! If you have been lurking, please feel free to sign up, there is plenty of room and I have already seen some AWESOME blocks. I will try and take pics of the blocks I have already received at some point too. But if anyone else has pics, please share. We love seeing what everyone comes up with!!

    Cheers!

    Hi everyone!! Just wanted to remind everyone that this mail date for this swap is coming up!! The blocks need to be to me by the end of the month. That means there is still time to sew and mail!! This is a small swap, so if you said yes to this swap, please do your best to send us blocks!! Sorry I haven't gotten to my PO Box lately, but if you mailed recently I am sure they are sitting there safe and sound. My plan is to check it later this week and check everyone in.

    Thanks guys!!
