    I think this is pretty. You need to send it on. If I am joining this swap, which I have some designs i think will work, I want this one. Did you get that RedGarnet? I put in a reservation for this block. yes, I talked myself into this one. Just what I need, another quilt to work on. Hopefully I can incorporate some of my left over fabrics that are florals into this one. Will pm you.

    Sherry you should. It is always fun to participate in these swaps. I have a dog swap quilt on my wall now that I joined last year. The chicken and cat ones are to big. They are such a joy to put together and see all the wonderful work everyone does.

    Oh I love the yellow flower and I hope that she sends them in. I was panicking because I thought these had to be all done this month. Whew, I can relax as I read the post again and I have all of March. I am leaving for Australia hopefully in April so I want them done by then. But I can relax a little. LOL.

    They are here urgodschild! She sent them right away.

    That sounds like a wonderful vacation. THe land down under.

    I am glad you feel relaxed now. I have been getting ready to make my last sets for the other kitchen swap. It always feels so good to have them finished and sent.

    Thanks quiltermomma !That is the only quilt I have ever made for myself. It is called," Rythum and Blues", by red rooster fabrics. They used to have a free printable pattern for it on thier site. But, I don't know if it is still there or not. I remember that I was not happy with the designer. Something wan't right in the pattern. If you do it, I would try one block of each block first and go from there.I made the mistake of trusting them and had to buy more fabric to re-cut one of them.. Grrrr. Made me mad! But, I love the quilt now.

    I would like to join this swap but I have a couple questions first. How many blocks would you get returned to you if you did one set? I am attaching a picture of my jelly roll would it pass to use as a "summertime" fabric? Thank you for all your help ladies.

    Hi Melinda,
    The swap is for a set of six. If you send one set you get one set back. You can send up to 4 sets. As far as you fabric is concerned, I suppose it would depend on what you make with it, for it to be qualified as a "summertime" block. LOL!

    Let me know if you will be joining us. It is always fun to see what people make to swap with each other.

    Thank you so much. Found it on facebook one day and decided I needed it after finding out the coffee pot broke, the fridge broke, and the dog is real sick. Makes life a little easier to deal with right now.
