    Rachael, I love your trees! I made a gnome block and a few tree blocks. I like free form pieceing also, I look at the pattern get an idea and then go create my own magical forest.

    I do have an Embroidery machine, but dang if I will take the time to learn it! I can do simple stuff, but when I had the lessons at Joann's my "teacher" was too busy with her boyfriend on the phone. So I figured I could teach myself! Not yet at least! My Machine is a Viking Husqvarna, Limited Edition. It sews great but I just can't quite get the hang of the embroidery part. I keep saying I am going to take lessons, but now that gas is $4.50 and the closest Dealership is in Riverside... Not too likely right now.

    OK Back to my gnomes and 'shrooms' Will post pictures later today
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Yes that should be okay. We just can't have more blocks alike than the number of participants we have (so we will have to have 12 people to make 12 alike blocks.) Right now we have 8 people, but I am sure we will have at least 12 before sign-ups close (hopefully more!!)

    Sounds like you want to join us, can I sign you up for our magical walk through the forest?

    LOL Rachel. You are so right. I have several bigger quilts I am working on that need to be done by June but you might as well count me in for this swap as right now I am working on piecing and appliqueing blocks for it. I also designed 6 different blocks, several paper piecing. Not sure if I will get to make all but I can not seem to lay off. Way too much fun. Do you already need to know how many sets? So yes, go ahead and sign me up. I would think I will make 4-6 sets.

    Hi athenagwis - I can't resist your Magical Forest. I have been working on 3x6" gnomes today - one set.
    I hope to do more of something else but will let you know what develops. Are you flooded with mushrooms yet?
    Would love to be added in.
    Thanks.

    Indeed WOW! Great job and so many done already. And then I thought I was doing good with 2 sets done.
    Thanks for posting. It helps me think of how to add to the blocks I am making. Mushrooms are on my menue next. I just washed the fabric and am drying it right now.

    I have been working on some mushroom houses and some crazy trees. They are appliques. They are coming out really cute. Not quite ready for pictures though. Maybe later today.

    Fabulous blocks, everyone!
    I am working on paper-pieced gnomes (3 1/2 x 6 1/2).
    What a fun theme : )

    I have some finished but darn camera is acting up! I know I need a new one but not right now! too much other fun stuff to spend my money on! Like Fabric.

    I did a few gnomes and a few Mushroom houses, and a few trees. So far I have been having so much fun experimenting with some of my own creations. I love this swap!

    I promise pictures this week. i am taking the camera to walgreens and see if they can get the pictures off the disk and onto a readable format for me.
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    I have been watching the fantastic blocks everyone has been making and I just have to join this swap! The land of Fantasy is where I live and escape the horrors of this life. (This life isn't really so bad; but it sure is fun to escape!)

    Hi everyone!

    I just wanted to pop in and say we officially have 14 people signed up for this swap!! You can see the list here:

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/groups/...p-g16-d64.html

    If you have not let me know how many sets you think you'll be doing, please just send me a quick PM. It helps to know how many sets we'll be dealing with in the end as people are making blocks. Also, if you have pictures to share as you are sewing, please do!! We already have some wonderful blocks shown in this thread, and I think we would all love to see what we will be swapping for!!

    If you have been lurking here, but haven't signed up yet, don't be afraid to join us!! Remember these blocks can be anything foresty!! If you want to do all tree blocks, that's perfectly fine, if you want to do all magical creatures, that's fine too!! If you have foresty/magical creaturey fabric and want to make a pieced block, that'll work too. I picked up some great mushroom fabric that I think I'll make a wonky log cabin style block with. Be creative!! If you love it, we'll love it. And you'll get a nice variety of blocks back anyway. If you need some ideas on tree blocks, you can scroll back through this thread, I have posted a bunch of links with different ideas. We would love to see more people joining us here!!

    Cheers!
    Rachel
