    I got my FQs over the weekend. We were out of town and it was a nice surprise to open the mailbox yesterday evening and find the packages! Thanks to Tracibug and I'm not sure who the other one is from because there wasn't a Board name on the package but it is from a "B. Gal*****" of Florissant, MO. Thanks ladies!!! The fabrics are wonderful!

    Thanks so much everyone for your kind understanding, we hope my mom is on the road to recovery, she has been do all the doctors, has heard their opinions and suggestions, and at this point she is following their new game plan. We need to go have labs on the 24th, and I am hoping all will be well. My mom is the sweetest lady, she is 77 and is the kindest lady ever, and hurts me so when she isn't well. I love her so....I appreciate all the wonderful comments...this wonderful lady gave me life.... and I owe her the utmost gratitude...she is so funny and we have the most fun we we go out and do things....so I need to keep her healthy, so we can keep doing them.. I am so sorry for all of you who have lost your moms...my heart goes out to you all......

    auntpiggylpn, your swap partner is quiltingdragon .... she sent me nearly the same set - beautiful fabrics which I am stitching into a block (just not done yet for pictures). Your other set is fabulous as well. Happy stitching!!!

    tlambing - love your beautiful valentine wall hanging! super adaptation of log block! Can I copy your design .... imitation is the highest form of flattery.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Most certainly, it is not my pattern. It's an old pattern called Heart to Heart by Four corners.

    Great blocks! I wish I had the "oomph" to get up and make some blocks with all my super fqs I keep getting...I seem to just admire them, think about what to make, and then come on here and "share" in all the "lovelies" all of y'all are making...LOL..

    not starting signup for February yet but the theme will be anything with green, yellows, gold, or purples...if you want to send for St. Patricks Day, it goes under green...you can do solids, patterns, prints, novelties...just stay within the color choices.

    Thanks for the heads up! It does seem we are a little impatient. . . But who isn't when it comes to surprises?!?!

    I had asked about getting the theme-not because I'm impatient, but more so for more time to get out and get the fabrics. With working full time and when it is cold and dark and maybe snowing, I'm not always up for going after work, and the only close lqs is only open two evenings until 7, and closes by 4:30 or 5 on Sat. and not open Sunday.
    I got my first swap package a few weeks ago, and just tried to upload the pic. but the computer won't read the scandisk, and waiting to see when the 2nd one comes, all kinds of possibilites... is it coming overseas, is my partner one of the ones hit by a nasty flu (hope not), did it get left in the bottom of the sort bin? Yikes! It will be a lovely surprise when it shows up I'm sure.

    Thanks Brenda for the ​preview!

    your right about it its not about just signing up for it its about preparing for it. I live where there are no stores per say at all let alone quilt stores. there is one an hour away. Which is rare for me to get to so its order it online or.. hope its that rare time I might have it all. I think I have those colors however. some shamrock some of the colors yellow and purple and that is a grand thing! thanks Brenda. (ps I didnt think it was too early heck I asked days ago. oops)

    any news yet on the maker of the fabric with angels and gold scrolls? red background it was. I think wow perfect for laugh here guys.. my christmas projects that I might have. I am always year round thinking Christmas.

    It's interesting how some of the same fabric shows up in a lot of the FQ's.
    Some of these fabrics knock your socks off! Nice job everyone!

    My guess would be those are "cupids" (for Valentine's Day) not angels. But you would have to ask the giver of those beautiful FQ's.

    Tracibug told me they sold it for Christmas. It's on the clearance rack at Hancock's. Could easily be used either way.
