    Traci, I went to a couple of Hancock's today and did not find that fabric in the leftover Christmas fabric. It is really cute. but now I don't think I can afford it .... found some perfect fabrics for upcoming months. Then I went to another place (Fabric Recycles) to buy more ... and a sewing machine that will be great for teaching a sewing class this summer. What a profitable day!
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Not to worry one bit about it!! I have played the FQ swap before, but not for at least a year, year & a half. This year I thought I would try signing up for a different swap each month. I just wanted to try something different!! I will let you know as soon as it arrive & Thank You for letting me know it's on the way!!

    I found the cherub fabric today at my Hancock's and it is about $2.00 yard so if anybody wants some I will go back and pick it up!

Its worth sharing but then there is this pretty purple in my stash that says share me share me! and its not st. pats. argh!

    Ok do you know why there pigs on Irish St. patricks day items? (such as vintage post cards) its because of the famine that hit Ireland. If you had a pig you were very lucky because you had food. Just thought I would toss that out to you. I couldnt figure out why there was always this silly pig on the cards I collected. like ok we know about gold and rainbows and lephrechauns but a pig? really? lol so now I have lucky pigs that go out with my St. Pat decor.
    I would love it! Also, thanks for the pig info...I collect pig stuff...It started as a joke, as one of my favorite sayings was "When pigs fly!" Several years back one of my best friend's husband found a pig with wings when they were on vacation, and they bought it for me...from there it just snowballed...

    Auntpiggylpn I would love 2 or 3 yards if you don"t mind. Let me know if you can get it.
    Miss"brat" if you have to share that purple you're suppose to send it to me, did you forget? Be sure and tell Steve to turn the temp up on the water heater in the morning, oh and don't forget to get out a stool so you can just sit in your own private little sauna.

    I didn't know that about pigs either! I collect everything pigs hence my board name : Auntpiggylpn. My newest pig focus is pig fabrics as I want to make a rag quilt for myself out of just pig fabrics.

    Brenda21,
    Just want you to know how much we appreciate all your hard work to keep this swap going. This is my first swap, and I have had so much fun. Although, December did tax my brain to come up with a block for winter. But I found something!!! It was tough, but I've almost finished the block. I'll post it when I have it ready.
    Thanx again

    My block from Dec

    MaryMo,
    As promised, here is my block from December's swap. It was the hardest block I have ever done. I got in online. It's from the block known as "Winter Clothes". I blew up the sections I wanted to use, They were tough. Thanx again for the FQ's.

    January Swap

    Pbadder,

    Here is my block for January (Valentine's). In retrospect, I should have used the mid-color fabric for the background and the white for one of the borders. Oh well, it is what it is and I'm still learning.

    Thanx Pbadder again.

    Oh my gosh, Jvan ... your block is so intricate. I give double (and triple) kudos for all your work! You are the paper-piecing master! It is beautiful! ... and you are magnificent!

    I received and my partner did too.
    That cherub fabric if you got it I would love some. big bucks and all I am feeling like a big spender. even a quarter yard I know I know how do i do that.. well rolling in the quarters . yes yes I am. just rolled them yesterday they came in rather handy. Might have a few for that. AND I have flying pig fabric to trade. Kid you not. Pigs on black fabric flying with little pink wings. its cute fabric. A quilt store quality fabric. never thought I would find a pig lover I keep mentioning it and suddenly not one but two of you collect pigs. too funny. I keep saying if you want a flying PIG tablerunner or mug rug or secret home decor but no one says oh I love pigs! and here you were hiding the whole time. sheesh.

    sign ups for next month? waiting patiently here toes tapping fingers tapping humm humming .. soon I think soon..

    Jvan, I didn't see your second block when I looked the first time ... the February block is just as good as the January one. You are certainly a master at using all the fabrics in one block! You are certainly talented!

    Finally finished my wallhanging. I used many of my swap fabrics and a few from my stash. I love the little scrappy border
