    If I make table toppers I use warm and natural -- nice and flat but give it body and so easy to quilt. Some use flannel but I like the weight of the MnN.

    As I looked at my daughters little house, she has no wall space in the kitchen or living room, so, I am thinking of making them into table toppers or tablecloths. The biggest thing is do I want to put in a batting and quilt them or just back them so I have a nicely finished edge on them. If any of you have any ideas, I am open to hearing them.

    Thanks

    I duct taped two pieces of foam insulation together and use that when i need a design wall. When not in use, slides behind sofa just great or out in the garage against wall. This way I can leave up and walk by several times or days if necessary to get it right.

    PokerDiva, I can't believe that someone who makes blocks like you doesn't have a design wall?

    I have one and I stink...OK, it's the back of a tablecloth, but it works.

    Packaged in Envelopes with plastic to go to PO after work tomorrow.
    March extra swaps to Gwenny, Renee110, & dotcomdtcm.

    April Extra swaps to Toriabelle & carsey.

    Whew! I am finally caught up excet for crafty3790 & dorrellann, April Swaps. If all goes as planned I will make them on wed.

    Thank you every one for yopur patience.

    I was offered a part time job unexpectedly a couple weeks ago. Money is ok. This is working in a flower shop, doing bridal bouquets, which I've done for 35 plus years. Easy job less then 5 minutes from home. Also DH was offered a job also. We go to work together. Owners old friends and nice to work with. Fun but takes time from here and quilting.

    When I started this swap, I bought some fat quarters of civil war and 30's fabric. So far I have only made one block from the civil war fabric. Does anyone with either of these fabrics as your theme like to do an extra swap for MAY? If so, send me a PM. I would like to put these fabrics to some use.

    Another fabulous star block from Bibliostone, an April extra swap. You guys are fantastic, and I am going to be loving this new star quilt!!

    Elise, thank you so much, I love the colors in your block. But I love batiks -- have only found two that I don't like! And oddly enough those two were from the 20 batiks my daughter bought and brough back from Bali! (My next batik quilt)

    Glad you like it! The black with multi-colors is one of my favorite fabrics. It goes with almost everything.

    I got this from Nancy. And here they they are! I think they look terrific. May or may not put sashing between the blocks, will make that decision when I get enough blocks.

    I want to get this quilt done for my sister's birthday in late June. No pressure on me. LOL

    Don't have a favorite -- love them all equally. Thank you, one and all, for the beautiful blocks.
