    Oh! I didn't realize that we were already talking about the Irish Chain pattern when I posted this link before! On what thread did I post it?

    Well... I'm ready to tease you, SheriR, :-p but only because you asked for errors in your parenthesis! In line 18 you made happylab equal, regular, and used and. In line 8 and 16 you capitalized cotton. It's just my software testing quality assurance class coming out! I'll be so glad to be done with college! :-)
    (You always do a great job! My posts are always full of errors. The other day I ignored the spell checker red underline for 'humor' thinking, hey!, isn't adding a 'u' just British?)

    I've cut 33 charms including a cute fussy for 15 swaps so I should finish in plenty of time. Have to cut evenings/weekends as work is V E R Y busy right now, some work days are 12 hrs, relocating the entire building, ugh.
    Hugs to all y'all! Happy Easter!

    I'm getting excited to see packages start rolling in. I've received one so far - khuxford!! This will be another great swap! (My new GO cutter should arrive any day!) I hope it's worth the expense... It usually takes me over a week to do all my swap cutting. and I've sure put the purchase off for a long Long time. It was 1/2 off so I decided it was time.

    I got one a couple of weeks ago.. I'm not sure it was worth the expense.. Or was I just too lazy to cut.. I bought the 2.5" die, and 2.5" strips.. Let me know your thoughts after you use it..

    I remember you told me this and that's why I'm worried. I'm not afraid to cut them myself. It just takes ALOT of my time. So, when I saw this sale I decided to take the plunge. If I hate it I suppose I can let one of my daughters try it.

    I was thinking that it wasn't worth the expense because I like to make scrap quilts. I finished four scrap quilts for my staff and didn't have the need to cut perfect pieces. I made a string quilt for my mom, and used the 2.5" strips for the binding.. I am now working on an applique story quilt for a guy that I've worked with for the past 36 years. I would love to share the pictures, but for some reason, I can't post pictures on the board. I am able to email them, but I've tried a couple of times to post, and it just isn't happening.. I am one of those people that makes my own patterns, and not use other's designs..

    Awawwww!! I want to see your quilts, barri! I have to email mine to myself. My phone makes me resize them. I pick small or medium. When I get them in my email I save them to my phone again and use that one to post to QB.

    Sheri,
    I can email them to you.. I am very proud of how they came out. It makes me smile when I look at mine. It's such a happy quilt.. I'm sure my girls love them.. I backed them with flannel. BOB is in the starting phase.. I am making the background. It's the sky, ocean, beach, sun, and a tree.. I'm finding all kinds of things to add to it like lady bugs, and birds.. It will also have sharks in the water, as he is a parrothead.. Would love to put a volcano in somewhere, but we don't have any in NY.

    I'm thinking of using the batik candy I've been saving. I'm leaving tomorrow for the Paducah Quilt Show and I will look for some neutral batik for background.

    Sheri - I'd like to join this swap for 15 cotton sets and 5 batik twists. Sending a PM

    Sheri, I sent my package two weeks ago to the wrong swap, but no fear,, they are coming back and will get them to it's right destination in time. Oh, I'm so glad to be back on meds. My brain was going Cock-eyed for 3 weeks. Have a great week ya'll. I'll be having my two grandson's this week, so not much on the board.
