    Her outdoor theme was kind of difficult for me. I wish I knew how to applique. My first thought was I can make a tree...NOT. Lets just say I think I'll take a class. Cyndi ended up with my second ever paper pieced block. I was lucky that I found the pinecone fabric. Still wished I could have figured out how to make a tree. I'm going to have to work on that.

    Wow! You are all so speedy! I spent part of today just figuring what block to make, let alone getting it done. Wish I was as quick as you...

    I'm not speedy. That was July's block. My partner just received it at the end of the month.

    That's one of the many things I love about this swap - it challenges us to try new techniques, explore new patterns, improve our skills along the way, and become each others' inspiration. :thumbup:

    I just sent my info to join the swap it will be my first time. Can't wait to get my partner for this. Looking forward to some new challenges. Maybe do some thing outside my box. I sometimes feel I only do what I am most comfortable doing. I look at this as a way of expanding my quilting horizon!

    My block is done and I think it looks pretty darn good, not perfect but it does help me to strive for that perfection.

    Block is going out Monday!

    Seems like a lot of people have not found this new thread. Maybe the moderator could add a link to this thread for the other one?

    Excuse me if I'm just being thick/ dense, but if I sign up, I pick a theme, and someone different makes me a block each month, at the same time I make a different block for a different person each month. Is this right? If it is, can I play too?

    That's right! It's a lot of fun to do this swap. Just PM MadeinMaine to tell her you want to join. She will do the rest, adding you to the list and assigning partners each month.

    Oops! That should be from the other one instead of for the other one.
