    I'm visiting DD in Fort Worth for a few days and while she is working, I'm playing with my candy. I've started to make split nine patch blocks. They don't take a lot of planning and I can come and go in between playing with her 2 dogs. Also, guess what I found for $6.99 each at Goodwill? A sturdy ironing board and a (looks like) new Rowenta Master iron. I was looking for a used ironing board and iron for her house since she has neither and I need them for piecing. Well, I already told her she can keep the ironing board but I'm taking the iron home with me!

    Yes, I am looking for another 2 1/2" swap as I am now collecting them for a quilt. I would definitely join your swap.

    I'd love to swap again but I don't have much time this summer for cutting, houseguests, traveling, supervising a swap, some home reno...the list goes on and on, plus the fabrics would be mostly the same as I've already sent. I might be able to do 5 or so batik sets, but I'll check the dates when it's posted. Thank you, Sheri, for making these candy swaps available to us!

    Below is a wip with a lot of the squares I've rec'd to date. Another 40 or so blocks are on the sewing table right now so soon I'll have to decide on a final layout. I cannot seem to choose between a light and a dark center! I even tried an asymmetrical layout but my sense of balance keeps pushing me back to the one of these. Choices!

    aborning - I love the quilt. I think I like the dark center best. If it's a hard decision you'll have to keep collecting candy and make both.
