    Oh gracious, Rumbols!! Finished already? I've cut everything out but I haven't been able to sew a lot...I'm picking out pretties for my new home but hope to start it in the coming weeks.

    Teen, as I am limited to not picking up anything over 5 pounds for three months (it has only been one), I can't do house work, dishes, etc. So I sew when I can. Besides, I had the pattern traced on fusible web before my surgery. The hardest part was picking up the iron. Now I am back to working on Christmas gifts. Teen, good luck with your wall hanging.

    Red and Black is all pieced! Not quilted, but the top is now together...won't start quilting it until next week, so I can work on my wall hanging! There are two that I'm torn between, so have done a bit on both, thinking I could make up my mind that way but that didn't work so I'll have to do a bit more on each one...hmmmm....maybe I'll end up finishing both? Then I'll have a problem with which to send. I'm afraid one is going to end up being much larger than I intended (I seldom use a pattern so most of mine are done by the seat of my pants and sometimes they are a surprise even to me!)...but at least with two I'll have a choice......

    Hi. New swapper here. I'm thinking this could be fun! I'm going to do my best to get my name on the "ready to mail" list. I already have an idea, fabrics selected, and have started cutting.

    Welcome to the swap WheezyBreezy! I'm sure others will be here to welcome you too...they are probably busy with their projects. Right now I'm sort of in a 'shall I start over?' stage...not quite satisfied with my beginning...but not dissatisfied enough to toss it....

    Itís on fabric and is washable on broadcloth so hopefully the quilting will work... thinking of hand-stitching together Iíll be adding more to it.

    Wonderful! You're going to challenge us all to try something new, it seems. Can't wait to see the finished product. I would love to try this but have so many things going on (that I wanted to try) that I'm out of room! Keep us up on the process, please......

    I like this technique Sew piece full, and it looks like you’ve been doing it awhile. It’s beautiful. look forward to seeing how you quilt it.

    I would like to join this one. I have the top finished. It is not holiday at all so if your looking for fall themed piece, you won't want mine. I am just afraid of doing something, then I like it...but am so scared the receiver will be disappointed.

    There is no theme in this swap so don't worry about a fall theme. I know everyone who joins in will be pleased with whatever Wall Hanging they get. Just enjoy the swap!

    You can show the top any time you want to and get feedback if it will make you feel better but I can assure you everyone will love it!

    Just make sure you send me a pm when it is finished and ready to mail.

    Addresses will go out at midnight on the last day of October.

    Lots of ideas going through my head but I haven't grabbed one out yet. I'm leaning towards a pattern I've wanted to try with a cat in it.
    That process Sewpieceful is trying is very interesting. I've never heard of it before but can't wait to see her results.
    Glad to see some new names. This is such a fun swap. Teen, Can't wait to see what you come up with
    I need to get started!
    Sew many Quilts.......so little time!

    Skaduzy...hope you decide on the cat theme...would love to see it...but then, I like cats. Don't have one, but really like them.

    Welcome back Boop56...wondered why you left...

    Teen...well, mine didn't turn out the way it was in my head....haven't decided exactly what to do yet...start over????? Go with what I have???? Will decide later, I suppose....guess I could post a picture, but you ladies are always so supportive (which is great, don't think I don't appreciate it!) that I'm afraid I might think the thing is better than it is. It isn't quilted yet...that might help it a bit.....

    Here it is... Since I had a bunch of hexi's left from my hexi quilt, I used the scraps from that quilt to make this. This was inspired by a Wendy Williams pattern...she used wool circles and heavy hand embroidery.... I used hexi's and added a swing with my signature mini quilt embellishment. Lol.. This is 13 X 33.... I think this would look so cute over a door... Still need to add a sleeve, which I've never done but it's ready otherwise. I hope you like it....

    Teen...I love your WH...but I think this is really strange...since I'm not going to use either of these I'm going to post pics...they didn't turn out as I planned, but I think it's a bit strange that we both had a swing...do great minds think alike? Lol
