(I'm so late in posting this...sorry, I was working like a fiend.) Thank you!!!! I love all the FQs! They came from all over the place...Germany, Ghana, Maine, Texas, Midwest...amazing! There was a vintage piece, a fab plaid, novelty, florals, batiks. Every one had some sort of significance as to where it came from...nice.

OK...I'm ready to swap again!!!

Yesterday, DH came in with a brown envelope for me. "What is this??" I said.
"I have no idea but it comes from the States" he answered.
"The States..?? ! I have nothing expected to come from there, I thought!!
Then, when I opened the envelope, what a surprise!!! There they were: my FQ from this swap!!!!
Thank you so very much, Carsey!! Now, I realize what a work it must have been for you to get all this organized and finalized!!!
Even the quilters who sent in their FQ is indicated on each piece of fabric!! Thanks to all who participated in this wonderful swap adventure. I admit I had almost forgotten about it, after the Holiday season, the weather, the babysitting and all the daily routines.
My FQ came from:
- Maineladybug from Maine
- Trialgirl from Germany
- AmyJo from North Dakota
- and Carsey from Tallahassee, Florida herself!!!
I love all the fabrics that have been sent to me and I hope that those who will get the ones I sent in like them too.
This was a great-great-great swap and I enjoyed participating!!
Thanks again, Carsey, for your devotion in this tremendous project!!!

I finally took my fabrics downstairs to the camera and took pictures - they are all incredible, I am going to spend quite a while fondling them before I can bear to cut into them - Carsey, I hope it was as good for you as it is for us!

Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Wales, and an incredible blue silk from China by way of Maine, I think


Pink flamingoes, loons, flowers and Asian type fabrics


More flowers, sun and moon, pumpkins, Cape Hatteras and sewing notions


Lady Liberty, flowers, hats, a batik (watch for some of this to represent my calico cat in my February BOM!) and a wow - the hats and purple flowers didn't have a name, but everyone else's fabric has a name that will go on on the back of my memory quilt - if you sent the flowers or hats fabric, please let me know so I can include your name also.

Hugs to Carsey and everyone who sent such wonderful fabrics!

Default Here are my pictures.

I received fabric from the USA, Canada, Scottland, Germany, Australia. Everything is great. Thanks to all. The 2 on the left in the first picture do not have names or where they are from. Does anyone recognize them?
